Meet the 2019 NZ Top Office Dog Winners

With 154 #nztopdog entries pouring in from across NZ (up 32% from 2017), the NZ Top Office Dog Winners have been named.


Name: Allan

Job title: HR Manager

Company: Electric Kiwi, Auckland


Allan is serious, he’s calculated, silent and incredibly headstrong. He’s often found sleeping splayed out on his back in the most unnatural of positions, or dragging his mat across the floor and pushing his way in to meetings to oversee the daily goings-on, so has well and truly earned his title as HR Manager. He’s a joy to have around the Electric Kiwi office on a daily basis and is more than worthy of the title of NZ Top Office Dog.

Name: Finn

Job title: Chief Cuddle Officer

Company: Unitec

​About: Finn strives to give as many Unitec employees wet nose kisses and likes to cuddle until the day is done. He is only 10 months old but sleeps in his designated office armchair like a 'good boy' until he is either ready to go home, or someone comes calling for a cuddle. Most people don't come by to see his 'Mum' any more, they just come to see Finn and have a 5-minute stress relieving dog cuddle on the office floor!
