There are an increasing amount of companies around the country that are allowing employees to bring their dogs to work more either occasionally or daily. This has been seen to heighten morale, make them more productive, and even make people more motivated to work and succeed at their jobs. Part of this could come from people having fewer worries that their pet is home alone and instead at their side at work.
Before Bringing Your Pet To Work
If you are thinking of taking your dog to work, you should follow a few tips to make sure it goes smoothly.
Before taking your dog into work, you will want to create a place in your office where the dog can feel comfortable and not be too territorial when he gets there. This will ensure that he feels better all day while you are in the office with him. You should also introduce them to this spot when you arrive, and they will know that it is theirs.
You want to make sure that your pet, in this case a dog, will be well behaved in your place of work. You do not want them barking all day and being disruptive. If they are like that at home, there is a good chance they can do it at work. So keep them busy with their toys, or calmly talk to the dog and reassure them it is safe there. You will also want to discuss this with your coworkers before hand, so they are aware.
Another important tip is to make sure you watch your dog at all times. It is not a good idea to let the dog wander about the office and get into things. You can use a leash when walking to and from places, but keep them in the office and perhaps use a gate to keep them in, if you do not want to close your door.
Final Cautions Before Taking Your Do To The Office
It is essential that your dog be housebroken before taking them into work. You do not want to deal with any accidents in the office. That is perhaps one of the most important things to keep in mind.
Other things will come naturally and you and your dog will end up enjoying more time together, and they will not be stuck at home by themselves all day. If you make sure to do the transition as smoothly as possible, the dog will be more accommodating toward the change, and you both will be happier at the end of the day.
