Lauren Alaina, American Idol Staff Bring Their #PetsAtWork (VIDEO)

Many companies across the United States allow their associates to bring their pets to work and understand the benefits of pets in the workplace and the American Idol production offices is one of those places! Through its PETS AT WORKinitiative, Purina is encouraging other companies to join this movement by participating in “National Bring Your Pet to Work Day” on Friday, June 21, 2013.

Purina provides five simple suggestions for pet owners to help create a welcoming, pet-friendly program at their workplace.  For more information, visit 

Also, join the movement by posting a “Like” on Pets At Work at  Follow the initiative on Twitter, @Purina, and join the discussion at #petsatwork.

For some total pet cuteness, check out this video clip shot during a “bring your pet to work” day at American Idol. Simon Fuller, Nigel Lythgoe, Michael Orland, and a slew of behind the scenes personnel introduce their adorable pets.

There is a cameo by Lauren Alaina who brought her dog, Prissie, to the set on the day she was there to perform her single “Barefoot and Buckwild.”

Tomorrow (June 21) is National Bring Your Pet to Work Day”. Although we don’t have video, actress, singer and two-time “Dancing With The Stars” champion (and ex-Ryan Seacrest galpal) Julianne Hough will be out and about promoting the movement. She routinely brings her two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Lexi and Harley, to her work locations.
