Some companies would never dream of allowing their employees to bring their pets to work, but the likes of Mashable, Google, Amazon, Etsy and other famous tech companies fully embrace this ‘Pet friendly’ culture and encourage their employees to bring a pet to work.
A universal study on the effects of having pets in your workspace, (in this case, dogs) shows that bringing dogs to work may lower stress and increase employee satisfaction for those who bring their dogs to work.

And, it’s not just the big companies joining in on this craze. At Hubble, we’re often asked specifically for pet friendly offices by London startups.
“Finding a pet friendly office has not been easy, but now that we’ve found one, we cannot possibly think about going back.”
says Oscar from dog sitting marketplace DogBuddy, who Hubble helped find an office last year.
“They change the atmosphere in the office” he says. “They lighten the mood, provide comfort and encourage a certain vulnerability. You don’t need to keep your guard up around a dog!”.
We also helped BorrowMyDoggy, which helps match dog owners with local borrowers, find a new home. Rikke, from the company told us they have at least two dogs in the office most days.
“the positive effect that these pooches have on everyone who works at BorrowMyDoggy is clear to see.”
