Stressful Job? Take Your Dog to Work!

One veterinarian and researcher Rebecca Johnson with the University of Missouri says your pet can be a great stress-reliever–at work! She tells USA Today, “People are realizing we need to do something to reduce stress in the workplace.” And, according to the Associated Press more and more people are actually doing this in the workplace.

In fact one humane society study shows when a dog is around, co-workers are more trusting of each other and collaborate more effectively. However employers are advised to set rules for dogs in the office. Some suggestions include keeping the animal out of eating areas and restrooms.

One California humane society worker, Jennifer Fearing, says the boost in morale is great. To find out more, check out her book “Dogs at Work: a Practical Guide to Creating Dog Friendly Workplaces”.
