Dogs in the Office; the Professional Pup : Promotional Strategy Today

Dogs in the Office; the Professional Pup

by Michelle Horstman on 04/19/13




In today's workplace, we have a lot of options that we didn't use to have. There's "Dress Down Friday", work from home days, flex time and more. Just last month on a visit to a client, their dog greeted me at the office door. I have two Yorkies who reside in my office every day.

The problem with dogs in the office, at least in mine, is when they decide to bark out the window at a jogger or freak out over the UPS delivery. Dogs apparently have no workplace skills (who knew?) and will often choose to do things like this right when you are on an important call with a client. I don't think the Dog Whisperer himself could train my dogs about phone etiquette and UPS deliveries.

At the same time, they say that dogs reduce stress, which is always a good thing during the work day.

Should you have your dog in the office? I was surprised to find many articles addressing this and many companies allowing it. If this is something you do or may plan to do, the ASPCA has a clever article HERE about doggy office etiquette with some things to consider, such as co-workers, food and more. Now that I have some guidelines, I need to get these little dogs into an office training program!
