Puppy Play Break 

This activity does more than just letting your team socialize with beautiful puppies & dogs. While that in itself is a winner, there is a far more serious impact that the pups can have. Puppies need their playtime as part of their development, so joining in with that playtime through puppy therapy is the perfect way to help both the puppies and the people who have come to play. It promotes the release of oxytocin in our bodies, a hormone related to affection. Playing with animals can elevate serotonin and dopamine, which calm and relax. Basically, playing with puppies can help to reduce stress in busy workplaces. Plus being showered with love is also great for the puppies themselves.

By spending some time enjoying a bit of puppy therapy you can improve productivity, accuracy, and enthusiasm in the workplace. Animals are a motivator for people, encouraging them to help, care and nurture, to detangle the nerves and worries that modern life throws at us all.

Portland Japanese Gardens Tour

Help your team achieve a deeper sense of mental clarity and appreciation for the world around them with a guided hike through Portland Japanese Gardens. Considered to be the best Japanese garden outside of Japan, this 5.5-acre complex in Washington Park contains eight immaculately maintained gardens representing different traditional Japanese garden designs.

A place for serenity, reflection and communion with nature, strolling along the peaceful walkways past koi-filled ponds, trickling waterfalls and Zen rock gardens. A wonder to behold throughout the year, the garden’s cherry blossoms bloom into soft clouds of pink each spring. Surrounded by the quiet beauty of the garden, your team will feel as if you’re experiencing the Sakura bloom in Japan itself leaving with a greater sense of well-being that comes from being outdoors immersed in nature.

The lessons of Portland Japanese Garden are many and varied; not only does it speak about the way trees grow and how moss forms on stone, but also about the lives and culture of the people who designed and nurtured this enduring art form.
