When they’re not working for themselves – be it performing, competing, or saving lives – dogs can make great sidekicks at the office. As natural workers, dogs provide companionship, can spark creativity, and having them by your side at the job can be an added bonus.
Not only are pets great alliances, there are actual studies that track the improvements they promote in the workplace. According to a survey by the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association , pets in most offices caused productivity and morale to skyrocket. Having a dog around the office is known to reduce stress (less barking among co-workers), create camaraderie among employees (sharing toys and treats), and foster more positive work relations (running with the pack).
Whether you work at home or in an office, seriously consider bringing your dog in for a pet-friendly boost in spirit – that is, of course, only if pets are allowed and welcomed to your workplace. Always keep in mind specific office etiquette especially designed for pets; make sure your pooch is well behaved and trained! The productive benefits and rewards of canine company at the office are priceless.
