The Therapeutic Benefits of the Office Dog
Today is "Take Your Friend's Dog to Work Day"
By Maggie Grimason [ Tue Feb 16 2016 3:26 PM ]
You may have seen the lovely Iota on the cover of the recent Pets edition of the Alibi. She is the constant sweet and tiny presence around the office. But today, we have another petite friend hanging around.
She belongs to my friend Dee, but on the occasional Tuesday instead of going to puppy daycare, she makes the trek down Central to hang out with me at the Alibi.
Spending time with dogs has been known to have positive impact on the stress levels of students and drunk people seem to love them. But there is also evidence to suggest that dogs in the workplace have a positive impact on overall morale.
Thus far, I would say that productivity levels here have suffered, but overall mood has seen a general lift. Also there has been significantly more time spent at floor level by the editorial and production staff. This carpet is pretty nice.
As an aside, I also have the opportunity to converse with so many more of my fellow pedestrians downtown when I have a puppy in tow. Everyone wants to know her name, everyone wants to know if they can pet her. And she, honestly, invites it, even when I would prefer she didn't.
In a single bound, she leaped over an abandoned crutch on the corner of Broadway; she fearlessly investigated the once-white towel in the alley; she makes nearly everyone who walks in the door smile. If only we could all be as intrepid and charming as Simone.
