COMPANY PRESS RELEASE
RELEASED THURSDAY, JUNE 15, 2000, 7AM EST

DogFriendly.com and Replacement's Ltd. Encourage Employers and Employees to Participate in the Second Take Your Dog To Work Day...and Everyday

PLACERVILLE, California -- June 15, 2000 -- DogFriendly.com, (http://www.dogfriendly.com) an online resource dedicated to finding places that people and dogs can enjoy together and Replacements Ltd. (http://www.replacements.com) the world's largest retailer of old and new china, crystal, silver and collectibles are teaming up to encourage employers and employees to participate in the second Take Your Dog To Work Day on Friday, June 23, 2000...and everyday.

Replacements, Ltd., based in Greensboro, North Carolina, made history in June of 1999 by co-sponsoring the nation's first ever Take Your Dog to Work Day. Over 75 dogs participated in the first Take Your Dog To Work Day at Replacements Ltd. This year they expect to have over 100 dogs. But the dogs do not come just once a year. There are about 35 pooches that come to work on a daily basis. "I have found bringing your dog to work with you can be soothing and relaxing and I encourage my 640 employees to do the same," said Bob Page, Owner of Replacements, Ltd. To find out more about Replacements, Ltd.'s dog-friendly workplace, view video clips online at DogFriendly.com.

DogFriendly.com encourages companies to allow dogs in the workplace not only on Take Your Dog To Work Day, but everyday. "Many pet associations, employers and employees have shown that dogs at work increase staff morale and reduce stress levels," said Tara Kain, Founder of DogFriendly.com. "Employees are more willing to work overtime because their pooch is sitting next to them."

If your company is interested in starting a pet-friendly environment, DogFriendly.com offers a sample pet policy:
  -- Dogs should be leashed or in a closed office or cubicle with a child gate.
-- Dogs must be well-behaved and not aggressive towards people.
-- Dogs must be on a flea program and current on all vaccinations.
-- "Three accidents and you're out" rule. Some companies allow only three bathroom accidents per dog and then the dog must stay at home, unless the dog comes back potty trained.
-- Dog owners must clean up after their dog outside. There should be an outside garbage can for the poop.
-- Some companies will exempt dogs from conference rooms, restrooms and cafeterias, especially if someone is afraid of or allergic to dogs.

If you are looking for a pet-friendly workplace, DogFriendly.com lists over 200 dog-friendly employers throughout the United States. These companies allow their employees to bring dogs to work on a regular basis, usually every day. The employers listed on DogFriendly.com make up the following categories:
  -- High-Tech Industry 27%
-- Pet-Related Industry 13%
-- Healthcare 13%
-- Retail 10%
