And if you take your dog to the office

Bringing your dog to the office or more generally to your workplace is beneficial for him and for you. Based on this observation and its experience, PURINA®, the specialist in pet nutrition, encourages and supports companies in the reception of dogs for their employees.

Dogs love to stay above all else with their teachers, and if they could follow them on their workplace rather than staying all day waiting for them at home, they would be happier.

A dog on the team ? A strength for the company!

But if you bring your dog to work, it would not only be to make him happy, it would also be an asset for you and your company! Many French people are indeed well aware of the benefits that their dogs could bring if they came to work with them: loyalty, commitment and well-being of the employees would be considerably improved, thus favoring the interactions between colleagues, the team spirit and cohesion within the company.

It is not for nothing that 44% of employees would like to bring their dog to their place of work, according to an IFOP survey conducted for PURINA® in May 2016. However, only 16% can do so.
