What is BETTER CITIES FOR PETS™?
Mars Petcare introduced BETTER CITIES FOR PETS™ in 2017. The program is designed to help communities become warm and welcoming for people and pets. The PETS WORK AT WORK™ Toolkit houses the information needed to help companies across America make the transition to a pet-friendly workplace by offering guidance on pet policies, a sample participant pledge and communications plan, legal and facility considerations, and tips to get company leadership approval for going pet-friendly.
Where does MYDOG® dog-friendly workplace data come from?
We've partnered with known pet experts like Banfield, Waltham and the BETTER CITIES FOR PETS™ program. The MYDOG® brand fielded a survey to identify common trends among pet owners as they relate to the workplace. The survey found that dog owners recognise the benefits of being able to bring their pet to work, and in fact, 88% of co-workers agree that having pets in the workplace improves employee morale, with 67% of people agreeing that their pet actually makes them more productive. Even more people (79%) agree that pets improve workplace relationships, and a vast majority (85%) agree that having pets in the office gives them a greater work-life balance and improved personal satisfaction with their work (77%). The survey was conducted online and polled 1,004 U.S. adults ages 18 or older.

The only thing I would add is that I advise that opened bags of dry (when stored correctly) should be consumed within 6 weeks of opening.
CESAR® Wet: Prior to opening, we recommend storing cans and plastic trays in a cool, dry environment. Once opened, the unused portion should be refrigerated and fed to your pet within three days.
