Puppy love – More about dogs in the workplace.

Nelly & Hugo

A little while ago I posted an article on the subject of dogs in the workplace complete with my very own dog Hugo. It has sparked a few questions and a lot of people have given us some really positive feedback on how much they enjoyed my blog and their own experiences of having a pooch about the place during the working day.

This got me thinking about the whole subject a little more, and the more I researched, the more I realised that the argument for having dogs (and indeed sometimes other pets) in the workplace is really rather strong.

As with a lot of research, you do need to put it into the context of your own environment before implementing a dogs at work policy. As we mentioned in the previous article, for larger companies it will probably be necessary to have a ‘pet free’ zone for those with allergies or who would simply prefer not to be around a dog. Also, there needs to be suitable entertainment and comfort provision for the furrier members of your team. However, these seem minor inconveniences when put into the perspective of the following potential benefits.

 

Overall there seems to be some very significant benefits to having a dog-friendly environment in an appropriate workplace and these benefits extend to both canine and human team members.

p.s  Hugo now has a little sister, Nelly
