If you haven't heard, having dogs at work in New York is really popular now. However not all bosses are on board, but maybe they'll reconsider once they see all of the benefits that allowing dogs in the office could entail. Woof!

Less Stress

Hanging out with dogs is great for our mental health. They can chill you out, improve your mood, and make you feel better inside. Having dogs around at work can create a relaxed environment, leading to happier and more productive employees.

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

We say that all the time at church and apparently it's true that dogs at the office can bring people together too. They're the ultimate icebreakers and make for great conversation starters. When everyone's loving on the furry four-legged co-worker, it brings everyone together in a helpful way. Yep, teamwork really does make the dream work.

Work Hard, Play Fetch

For many dog owners, leaving them at home it can be tough. Having dogs at work means you can spend more time with your furry best friend. It also means that you won't have to run home in the middle of the workday to let the dog out. It saves time and gas money.

Stay Fit

Dog-friendly offices can be like fitness clubs with wagging tails. Regular walks and playtime with dogs can help you get exercise during the workday. It's a bonus for your health and well-being.

Bring New Talent To The Workplace

In a competitive job market like New York, having a dog-friendly office is a major perk that can help attract the best of the best to your workplace. Pet owners treat their dogs like part of the family, so there is a better chance that they'll want to work for them.

Creates A Great Work Atmosphere

A workplace that welcomes dogs is all about bringing joy to the office. It shows that your boss trusts you and cares about your work-life balance. Before you bring your pet to work, you should see what the local laws have to say about it including building rules and insurance stuff.
