Do You Bring Your Dog To Work?

June 21, 2013  

Answers to our Community Question of the Week

Today is Take Your Dog To Work Day, so we asked our Facebook friends, “How many of you will be bringing your pooch into the office?” As it turns out, lots of you bring your dogs into work whenever you can, or are lucky enough to work from home. (And boo to companies without pet-friendly policies!) Thanks everyone for sharing, and enjoy the day with your dogs!






Here is my dog Atilla and I doing some serious work. We have 7 dogs and usually a foster or two and find it is not only enjoyable for my employees and I to have them around acting goofy, but it is an awesome way to bond with and socialize a foster dog. Many have come through here and before they go to their new homes we try take a picture with them and the staff to wish them off. Oh, and yes, that’s his own chair. ~ Alex Baliles

My dog comes to work with me daily. Working on a great “settle” and crate training plus chew toys/Kongs is important to help reinforce the idea that work time is mostly a quiet time. Having a treat jar so coworkers on breaks feel welcome to occasionally run him through his gamut of tricks helps keep him mentally stimulated between walks, too. ~ Carolyn Pettigrew
