Let it show in your office

While allowing dogs in the workplace has previously been considered a benefit for employees, research has found a significant benefit for companies. In fact, one study found that people who often took their dog to work had significantly lower turnover intentions and stronger relationships with coworkers and managers compared to those who never took their dog to work.
