3 Benefits of Having Dogs in the Office
Dog owners agree: it’s tough to be away from your dog for any amount of time. Luckily, businesses across America are becoming more pet-friendly to accommodate man’s best friend at the office!
If your office is opening up to canine consultants, here’s some advice that will help you make the most of it:
Office Dogs Improve Employee Morale
Whether you’re a dog person or not, it’s hard to deny that dogs can be beneficial. Whether they help alleviate stress and anxiety in humans (and we all know how much our mental health matters), provide companionship when everyone around us seems alone; maybe even help us with a tough day… the office pup might just make work better! It’s been scientifically proven that dogs help humans create more hormones associated with a positive emotional state – so try petting a pup today for a pep-up!
Office Pets Encourage Workplace Bonding
Office pets are becoming increasingly popular in the workplace, and for good reason. Studies have shown that having a dog in the office can promote bonding between coworkers. In one study, employees who brought their dogs to work reported feeling more connected to their coworkers. Other research has shown that dogs can help to create a sense of community in the workplace and encourage employees to interact with each other. In addition, dogs can also help to increase productivity by providing a sense of calm and focus. So if you’re looking for ways to promote workplace bonding, consider allowing an office dog.
Accident Clean-Up: Don’t Stress the Mess!
Of course, bringing an animal (even a domesticated one) into a professional workspace isn’t easy all of the time. To avoid property damage from “accidents” like dog poop or vomit, make sure you partner with a professional cleaning service.
