    I aren’t allowed to take my dog into anywhere be it shop or office so how would that work? . Our society has become less dog friendly .

    Yes !! But then it all depends where you work of course. If more Employer would allow pets in the workplace more people would consider to get /adopt a pet. Working long hours is one of the main reason why most people don’t have pets.

    I fully support Pets in the Workplace. In particular I really enjoy taking my Chocolate Labrador with me to Restaurants to sit under the table while the family eats. This is so good for the dog’s training! And more places are seeing the value in doing so! Brilliant

  4. I whole heartedly agree with dogs in particular being welcomed into a satisfactory workplace. Obviously it would depend on the type of workplace but if all employees are in agreement then I believe it would be a Win Win situation.

    Work places can be dangerous, I know of a dog that was seriously injured at a garage , not all work places are suitable

    I am an Administrator in a care home and I take my Labrador to work with me every day. The residents love to stroke her as many of them had pets in their younger days, and the other staff enjoy her too. It’s great!

    I have been in restaurants and cafes over the years where children are allowed to run around, scream and shout and leave a total mess on the floor when they leave. All down to upbringing. Where as dogs, not all I might add but a majority are far more well behaved in such surroundings and certainly do not leave behind a mess or are allowed to run round and upset people trying to have a relaxing and noise free time.

      Depends where you are working.. it has its good and bad side.. as long as the owner has complete control and it is not round people that are scared of dogs or have allergies I can see no reason why they cannot be welcome in the work place.

    I bring my dog to work with me, I work in retail and he either stays in the staff room or by the counter with me.
    My colleagues LOVE having him at work, they spend their lunch hours and breaks playing with him or taking him out for walks- he’s a great morale booster and every time I don’t bring him to work everyone complains! My boss was sceptical at first but has seen the effect that having a dog at work has on everyone’s morale. A bad day can be turned around by having a cuddle with a dog or taking them out for fresh air.

    Customers, too, love seeing a dog at work. In fact, we are known as the shop with the dog and many people come in just to see my dog “working”! We have only had one person in 5 years complain about him because her child was scared of dogs (my dog was behind the counter sleeping) and didn’t want to enter the store.

    Allowing dogs at work is a big step and I understand that it can be scary for some employers, but the boost in morale, productivity and even bringing in customers is definitely worth it.
