” Why You Should Take Your Dog to Work” is a terrific article with benefits (and downsides).
The author Richard Moran comments, “I doubt that Chevron or Nordstrom are looking at their dog policy in the Employee Manual just yet. But for many in smaller companies, especially startups, “To take or not to take, that is the question”. I would also check your lease to make sure you aren’t violating your contract.
Some of the pros:
- Your dog will introduce you to your coworkers.
- The hours you spend in the office become infinite because you don’t have to race hone to let the dog out.
Some of the cons:
- A Saint Barnard or Newfoundland will take up your entire cubicle.
- Some coworkers maybe allergic or hate dogs.
