After a half-hour walk to work each morning, Joy likes to grab a drink and head to her desk where she promptly curls up underneath it and has a nap. Joy is an eight-month-old golden retriever and she goes to the office with her owner, Carol DuPuis. These days, especially at tech companies, youre as likely to find a dog in the office as you are pot plant or watercooler. For startups particularly, allowing dogs is an easy, cheap way of attracting and retaining millennials, on top of free snacks, pinball machines and gym membership. Google's code of conduct states affection for our canine friends is an integral facet of our corporate culture. At Amazon, around 2 000 employees have registered their pets at its headquarters in Seattle so they can take them in-reception desks are stocked with biscuits, some water fountains are set at dog height, and theres off-leash park-also open to the public-where staff can exercise their pets. DuPuis is partnerships manager at ReachNow, US car-sharing app. My favourite part about bringing Joy into office is Joy she brings to my colleagues-pun intend. Its tough not to love puppy energy, it just feels so nice, she say. Joy spends part of her day sleeping, but she also joins DuPuis for meetings and likes to sniff around for bits of peanut butter pretzel that have fallen on the floor. Gemma Huckle, head of content and culture at London brand agency Rooster Punk, knows all about the pleasure dogs can bring. Her French bulldog, Amelie, has changed the mood in the office since her arrival two years ago. Huckle say: She makes it feel like Home from Home: atmosphere is warmer and more sociable. If someone is feeling a bit down in dumps or stressed out, they usually come and see the dog. Just five minutes of pampering or playing with her seems to perk everyone up. Having a dog is also great for our physical health, as it gives everyone an excuse to get out of the office and get some air. Amelie was crowned StartPup 2016 after Rooster Punk shot a video of her in the office and entered her in the world first competition to find the best dog belonging to startup. Huckle recommend having dogs at work. It helps staff bond and I think it reinforces positive work behaviours-people seem to be more friendly and approachable. Around 8 % of US and UK employers allow dogs at work. A 2016 survey by Banfield PET hospital found that 82 % of employees feel greater sense of loyalty to PET-friendly companies, 88 % think pets at work improve morale and 86 % say they reduce stress. Laura Wolf, global content manager at digital creative agency Possible, based in Seattle, says her chihuahua-dachshund mix, Boomer, is a real morale booster. She also helps break ice with new colleagues. You get to know people through your dog, people stop to cuddle her.
