ATMOSPHERE IS IMPORTANT
Thanks to furry friends the atmosphere in the office is warmer and more sociable. If someone’s feeling a bit down or stressed out, they can always come and play with the dog. Just five minutes pampering with pet seems to perk everyone up.

An office furry friend can also be a powerful bonding tool. In a lot of offices, people have so much work that they forget to speak with theirs colleagues. Would this change if suddenly a pet was introduced to the workplace? My bet is that suddenly everyone would want to be where the dog is and well … everyone will have to spend time with each other in the process! It will also become a shared interest among employees, creating a new point of conversation.
