Calling canine recruits for Bring Your Dog to Work Day

By CFB Halifax

On January 25, 2024, Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Halifax is hosting its very first Bring Your Dog to Work Day in support of the National Defence Workplace Charitable Campaign (NDWCC)!


  • Supervisor approval required. This is VERY important!
  • Clean up after your pet
  • No aggressive behaviour 
  • Limit one dog per person 
  • No dogs in hazardous workspaces 
  • Ensure your coworkers are ok with you bringing a dog, especially in a shared workplace 
  • Pet proof your office, where necessary, including limiting access to hazards and fragile items 
  • Supervision of pet required at all time 
  • Dogs must be comfortable around people and other animals 
  • Come prepared; doggie bags, treats and whatever else your pet requires for the day 
  • Pets must be on leash while in CFB Halifax 

A $10 cash donation should be passed directly to your NDWCC Unit Representative. 

CFB Halifax would love to see photos of local Defence Team members at work with their pups! If interested, please send your photos to by 12 p.m. (Atlantic) on January 26.
