My Tie is Crooked? My Bad!
Recently you may have read my post on Klutz Publishing's dog-friendly office. You can find it at Dog Friendly Workplaces: Insight from an Insider. That was my sneaky set up to get your mind thinking about taking Fido to work on Friday, June 25. Of course, even I know that it has to work for the boss. That's your challenge; at my office, I have 3 dogs and we have a happy time interacting throughout the day. I love that I don't miss many of the photo opportunities or funny antics that my threesome pull off.
Poking around on the Internet, I discovered that Cesar Millan has offered some strategies for making your dog-office arrangement work out. Who better to offer assistance, right?
Cesar's article, although very brief, offers a few tips that are spot on. Like his 'no treats or food' rule. Food aggression is much easier to create when there are multiple dogs in a contained area, so keep that in mind if you decide to tackle this adventure.
Finally, Cesar's piece wraps up with photos of their office pack (there's a bunch of them) and stories from a number of the employees that describe how they deal with common problems of having multiple dogs in the office. I hope you'll read these--good stuff. If you decide to bring your pup to work, drop me a line and fill me in on your success or challenges. Any stories are helpful, so don't be shy.
