Meet Pets at Work
Research tells us that there are many health benefits to having a pet at work, for example 89 per cent of healthcare professionals agree that stroking a pet can lower blood pressure and therefore reduce stress. Let's hear from some of these pets and find out why they love to be at work!
"I love going to work with my owner - I get plenty of fun walks, tasty treats and playtime with the other dogs in the office. I also get lots of attention from all my human friends there; they love bringing me toys to chase and chew!"
“I’ve heard that some dogs stay at home all day – and that’s fine if they like it, but personally I hate daytime TV! I love coming to work, I get to have company most of the day, and we have a lovely walk at lunch time, which Mandy says does her good too!”
“I like coming into the office every day. Especially if there is a chance to sit by an open window as I usually get a cheeky treat from passers-by.”
Bru said...“I need to be in the office just to make sure things are running smoothly. I’m the organised type and see myself in more of a supervisory role than a pet who prefers to sleep under a desk, I need to be on top of everything going on.”
