Office dogs: The Manual


Office Dogs: The Manual is the guide to dogs in the workplace. As the popularity of taking our canine companions to the office continues to grow, the many benefits for employers are increasingly recognised. Meanwhile, a new generation of employees are prioritising their dog's needs more than ever before.
Written by a specialist dog behaviourist, this book offers a unique insight into how to integrate your dog into office life, making the arrangement work for all involved: the employer, the employee, and perhaps most importantly, the dog! Uniquely, this book considers the dog's perspective on office life, whilst also providing plenty of practical advice for making your dog's time in the office a success. It takes you through the entire process, from gaining the support of your colleagues to policy considerations for the employer.
With helpful, ready-to-use materials for the office included within, and real-life case studies of workplace dog success stories throughout, this book is the ultimate essential reading for anyone involved with office dogs – owners, employers, those who work with dogs professionally, and those who are simply lucky enough to share their office with a dog!
