Study after study has proven how pets have a calming effect on our bodies and minds, how they help children with A.D.D. focus better, how they reduce blood pressure and lower stress, how pets at the workplace make employees more creative, productive, and cordial to each other, and how they're such awesome additions to our lives overall.
A pet that has free reign of a workplace can be a source of entertainment for the most part. But at the end of the day, every pet is an animal that cannot truly be held accountable for its actions.An unforeseen situation that makes even the most docile pet feel threatened may cause it to attack and injure someone at the workplace-a perfect recipe for personal injury and a big fat lawsuit. You might argue that workplaces that allow pets must have a round the clock on-leash policy, but we all know that this is one of those rules that we all love to break.We are a pet crazy nation.
We even have a designated holiday dedicated to our pets-the Take Your Dog to Work Day-celebrated in the month of June every year.
