K-9 Commute

85% of employees who have dogs would like to be able to bring them to work, according to a recent survey.

However, only 5% of dog-owners have actually ever taken their pet to the workplace.

A surprising 38% admitted they would consider changing jobs if it meant they were able to bring their dog in. A further 16% of dog-owners surveyed would give up one weeks’ holiday in order to have their pooch in the office, and 14% would even take a pay cut.

Non-dog owners weren’t quite so enthusiastic about the idea – 68% were unhappy to work in an environment with dogs around.

Common concerns included fleas, chewed cables, allergies and litter training.
