Are you letting your office go to the dogs?

According the American Pet Products Association, 1.4 million people take their dogs to work every day.

Many offices are becoming dog-friendly, as companies realize both the personal and work benefits of allowing dogs to roam the office.

Aside from the occasional barking and shedding, allowing pets at the workplace is said to increase worker productivity, staff morale and camaraderie. Workers who bring dogs to the office may also be encouraged to work longer hours.

As of 2006, one in five business allowed dogs at the office.

Take Your Dog to Work Day, which falls on June 22 this year, is sponsored by Pet Sitters International, a North Carolina-based association that promotes adoption.

Is your workplace dog-friendly? if so, send us photos via email or submit directly to the slideshow below.

  • Hugo

    Hugo is a basset hound and comes into work here at 10 Yetis PR Agency almost every day. Owned by Andy Barr and Jill Tovey, co-owners and founders of the agency, Hugo provides the office with constant entertainment. However, you do have to be careful with your lunch- if you don't eat quickly, you don't eat at all... but Hugo does. He's a great ice breaker for new people coming into the office and, occasionally, acts as an excellent guard dog.
