There was never any question that I would be bringing my Chihuahua puppy to work with me sixteen years ago. When I got her I knew there was no way I would ever leave her at home alone every day. It just wasn’t going to happen. Lucky for me I am self employed. Although Tasha is gone now I am planning on acquiring a new little Chihuahua to supervise me.
Studies show that co-workers tend to get along better and some even work longer hours when there are pets at the office. There’s no need to rush home and walk your dog when he/she is right there with you.
You also have a great excuse to exercise by walking your dog on your breaks and lunch hour.
A recent survey showed that nearly one in five companies allow pets at work. Those surveyed believed that having pets at the office reduces stress and causes happiness. That’s a win-win situation.
It’s best if your pet is people friendly. My little girl tended to be a bit overprotective. She liked to chase people as they were leaving. I guess she wanted to make sure they paid their bill and then left her along to nap. So make sure if you do bring your pet to work that they don’t bite your customers. That is never a good business practice and may lead to an unwanted lawsuit.
