The Clean Sweep
Home & Lifestyle
Our dogs (all three of them) all have long hair! So, that means every time we go outside in the winter, their hair collects and drags everything back in. I’m talking dirt dripping from their bellies, wet paws and melted snow everywhere. But we don’t let this stop us from heading out to have fun, especially because getting outside is so important these days. Instead, I just make sure that I clean them off really well before we go back inside the house.

This policy allows Kaitlyn, and all Associates, to bring their dogs to work every day.
Dogs face weather-related risks in any season. One of the biggest risks dog owners face in the summer months is heatstroke. I call it one of the biggest because if you are not aware of it in time, it can be life-threatening for your dog.
When COVID-19 hit the United States, it changed the way we all lived. And not just for humans – shelter pets across the country quickly started to feel the effects, too. We are so proud of our friends at BISSELL Pet Foundation® (BPF) and how quickly they adjusted some of their biggest lifesaving initiatives to comply with social distancing guidelines and stay at home orders.

It’s hard to tell who benefits more from the pet-friendly workplace policy at BISSELL, our pets or us. There are so many benefits for humans when it comes to having pets in the office, but if you asked BISSELL Associate Carolyn, she’d argue a lot of pets benefit more than their humans.
