Do you bring your dog to work?
Would you like to, but are afraid she will make you look like a bad doggy parent?
If you are among the fortunate who get to bring your dog to work, you can preserve the privilege by turning your dog into Canine Employee of the Month!
Here are some helpful tips to make your day at work with your dog something you want to repeat:
Mind the manners.
Beef up on those manners cues. That is; make sure that Sit, Stay, and Quiet are nice and reliable.
Your doggy day-pack should include food, treats and your dog’s favorite chew toy for the times she needs a snack or just some comfort from home. You should also bring a leash and poop bags for your frequent trips outside. Don’t forget a dog bed or blanket for when she is sitting quietly at your side. And just as a precaution, some pet-stain or odor remover in case of accidents.
Be mindful of others.
Not everyone is a dog lover and it’s your responsibility to keep Fido away from anyone who might not appreciate dog kisses, paw prints or a hair shower.
Take breaks together.
Schedule at least two breaks for your pooch to stretch his legs and go potty. If possible, spend your lunchtime together, perhaps with a nice walk.
