  • DARG COMES TO YOU! – TIME TO CHILL, RELAX AND CUDDLE WITH DARG DOGS AT YOUR OFFICE!

The DARG Team offers a DESTRESS EVENT for companies: Taking a stroll to a nearby park to pet a dog is often not an option for many employees, so our dogs visit them instead. The dogs all love being cuddled, stroked, fed treats and just hanging out. Our aim is for hard-working individuals to have a short break and to destress. In fact, studies show that playing with or petting a dog can increase levels of the stress-reducing hormone oxytocin and decrease production of the stress hormone cortisol.

All we need is an area where the dogs can be and then it’s up to the employees to stop by and interact with the dogs. For more info, please contact us at dargdestress@gmail.com or call on 021 790 0383.
