About Us

Our collective experience in brand management, graphic design, and corporate relationship-building covers a wide range of skills and ensures our clients get a true strategic partnership that keeps them coming back for more. From supporting the fundraising efforts of an international non-profit organization to supplying jaw-dropping sales incentive gifts for Fortune 500 companies, we really do love exploring memorable, inventive ways to help our clients achieve their marketing goals. And it’s our ambition to earn that business again and again with great ideas for each project. Our formula works well – as our top clients have worked with us for an average of 10+ years.

Our Name

Dogs at Work, originally called Blue Dog Brand Works, was founded in 2004. And how did we derive our company name, you ask? Our belief that loyalty, tenacity, agility and ingenuity – outstanding characteristics present in dogs – are the same qualities that make Dogs at Work stand out with our clients. And yes – we do bring our dogs to work.

Our Values

We put some teeth into our dog-centric ethic by supporting animal welfare groups from California to Maine. Not only do we support animal rescue organizations with donations, we support them by adopting from them and we volunteer at shelters too.  Our office-dog-regulars enjoy toys and treats and provide us with the calming support so helpful in a fast moving, time sensitive business.  We can’t imagine a workday any other way.  And we also believe in dogs-at-play… maybe weekends spent hiking with our dogs, or running a Canicross race. We even have a social media star… follow @dognamedstella on Instagram!

Our Process

With the details you give us about your company and goals, our team will go to work developing ideas specific to you and your project. Then you’ll receive a free “Custom Ideas” proposal – full of unique, clever marketing solutions to make your message stand out from the crowd and stick with your audience.

Hanna’s mayhem: Graphic design, accounting, kids, dogs, popcorn. Not necessarily in that order, popcorn comes first.

Angelica is a rising senior at Endicott College where she studies Marketing Communications and Business Administration. At school she partakes in a national student advertising competition that has helped her learn about the marketing field. She is hoping that her internship at Dogs at Work will teach her even more and help get her closer to deciding what she would like to do in marketing and business. Angelica was born and raised right here in Brunswick, Maine, and she likes to spend her free time hiking, trying new foods, exploring new places, and drinking coffee. She is also a big dog lover and has two Pomeranians at home.
