It’s spring, and thoughts of pet owners are turning to, well, not love, but hair—shedding hair. Longer days with more light signal dogs, cats, and other animals to drop that heavy winter coat so a lighter summer coat can grow in. That means hair, hair everywhere.
We believe pets deserve to feel special all the time, and lucky for them, it’s about to get even more special for our furry friends! April 11 marks National Pet Day – which for us is any day that ends in “y”. And while National Pet Day is all about our four-legged family members, we wanted to take some time to recognize the hard work of you, the pet parents, and give you something that will make caring for your pet (and their messes) easy.
A favorite perk for some Associates at BISSELL Headquarters is the fact that we are a pet-friendly workplace. That means on any given day you can walk the halls and encounter nearly a dozen dogs working alongside their parents. One dog Associates often have the pleasure of seeing during the work day is Moose. Just last month, the rescued English Springer Spaniel celebrated his sixth birthday!
Our pets are our best friends, there’s no doubt about that. There’s nothing like having a pet by our side, especially during the challenging times we’re in. We know pets have a positive impact on humans in times of stress, and scientists have actually linked the release of oxytocin to human interactions with dogs.
It’s the month of love! Valentine’s Day is still a day to recognize those we care about, but it’s also become so much more. Thanks to Leslie Knope and her beloved Galentine’s Day celebrations (Parks and Rec fans are familiar with this reference), it’s become a time to celebrate friends, too. It can also be a day to show your furry friend some extra love – as if we don’t already show them enough, especially here at BISSELL®. With all this love in the air, it got us thinking, when was the last time you showed your vacuum cleaner some love? If the answer is never, we understand. Unfortunately, it’s not at the top of most people’s minds, but maintaining your vacuum is incredibly important.
Whether you’re tidying up for holiday house guests, are hosting dinner or Christmas events, or are still perfecting your seasonal decor, hopefully these will help save you time and keep the season stress-free.
One Associate who takes advantage of the pet perk is Gene, who works as an analyst and brings Maggie, his English Black Lab, to work with him often.
BISSELL has a long-standing partnership with Puppy Bowl and is bringing the MVP award to the show this year.

One dog who’s a regular around here is Jem. While her dad, BISSELL Associate Colin, spends his day working as a Senior Industrial Designer, Jem spends hers getting attention from Colin’s fellow Associates.
