A robust policy is required if you are keen to have ‘canine colleagues’ in the workspace.
Check out this simple policy to get you started:
Dogs need to be well-trained, obedient, and sociable.
Dogs need to be clean, potty trained, properly vaccinated, and free of parasites.
Owners are 100% responsible, 100% of the time, for their dog’s wellbeing.
Owners must take breaks, feed and water and clean up after their dog.
Health & Safety standards for allowing dogs in the workplace such as dog-free areas for those who do not like dogs or are allergic, are required.
Ensure landlord policies are not being breached.
NO DOG SHALL: exhibit aggressive behaviour; disrupt co-workers, inhibit work productivity; bark excessively.
Ok, with your policy in place, now what about some cute, stylish or practical ‘office accessories’ for your working pooch!
