It was National Pet Day recently, and it got us to thinking.
Do you have an office pet?
It’s not only the junkyard dog anymore; many offices are allowing pets these days. A 2012 study showed that bringing your dog to work may lower your overall stress. Plus, having animals can add to a positive, open environment, which reflects to your customers as well.
Here in our shop, we have a few different animal ambassadors. One is our friendly four legged friend, Moxie. She’s not officially the office dog, but this is her second home. Moxie greets our customers and brings a smile to our faces every time she is in the building.
Recently, we added to the Madison Top family with some frogs in our boss’ office. Known collectively as the Topper Hoppers, these little guys are already bringing a sense of whimsey.
Of course, every year there’s a Take Your Pet To Work Day in the United States, too.
What about you? Do you have an office pet? Would you bring your furry friend to the workplace if you could?
