When Take Your Dog to Work Day was started in 1999, the organizers asked workplaces and business owners everywhere to become Fido-friendly for one day of the year. But some companies didn’t stop there: According to a recent study by the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association, one in five U.S. companies allows employees to bring their pets to work. Having pets in the workplace is increasingly seen as a win-win by businesses — it creates a more pleasant work atmosphere for animal lovers and improves productivity and (hopefully) profit margins for management.
Our company dog, Jake, belongs to Mark Borella. He comes to work with Mark, our boss, everyday. Jake is a very spoiled and very well-behaved and happy pooch. He makes US happy to have him at work everyday. And if YOU come to visit us at The Smile Factory, you will be welcomed by Jake with a broad grin. Woof, woof!
