Office Dogs

Ask a Question

We have a couple of office dogs and love it, at lunchtime you can take them for a walk and is really refreshing.

Do you have an office dog?

I have a phobia of large dogs, someone once brought in a Great Dane puppy, who wasn't very well trained, in fact he had been kicked out of doggy day care.It was terrifying to see this large dog running towards you in the corridor. So, unless the dog is well trained, I don't think it's fair to your colleagues.

beccatavender I agree. I’m scared of any dog’s. I get a panic when I’m walking and someone is walking towards me with a fog even on a lead. Even worse when I see a dog not on a lead I panic x

I think this is a good idea, but I agree, only if they are well trained. It encourages you to go for a walk during lunch time and gives you that extra bit of exercise, where otherwise you would have just stayed in. On the other hand, who's turn would it be when it's raining?!! 🤔😅

I don't think I'd get away with introducing my 2 into a kitchen.

No customer wants or needs a side of slobber with their salad.

Dogs are great. A neighbour worked for the navy and took his dog in the office,

I was surprised they let him.

I like seeing dogs in shops. Local businesses.

I wouldn't have liked that as I was bitten by a dog when I was young (yes, they had dogs long ago!) and the other question no-one has asked is : Who gets the job (!) of picking up the poop? Great for the bosses. The dog doesn't get lonely and the bosses don't have to look after those nasty jobs (Sorry). Image

tumblespots they probably just leave the poop in there. As most dog owners are like that. What’s that got to do with you getting bitten. They would know when the dog needs a poo. If they’re great owners as in mmm sure they are.

Sorry you had a bad experience with a dog. But that was a bad owner.

rossruby1977 It certainly was a bad owner but doesn't lead me to want anyone's dog in the office that I work in.

I want to work in whatever office has an office dog. I don’t even work in an office, but now I want to.

We used to have an office dog and it was brilliant until we bought some venison treats and the whole office suffered 🤢.

I always dreamt of being able to take our dog to work .... they were always clean and well trained/behaved ...but never permitted.

I wish we did, but no, there’s too many people in the office, with some not being a fan of dogs I’m afraid
