Is Your Office Going to the Dogs?

dog 150x150 Is Your Office Going to the Dogs?If you’ve ever wanted to take your well-behaved dog to work, circle June 24 on your calendar: It’s National Take Your Dog to Work Day!

If this is your dog’s first day at the office, do some advance prep. First, make sure it’s OK with the boss and your colleagues if Fido comes to work with you for the day. Then dog proof your office, cubicle or work station. Tape wire cords out of the way, hide trash bins if your best friend likes to see what you’ve just filed away there, and put potential toxic materials (markers, for example) in drawers.

Be sure to take food, treats, water and supplies to clean up unexpected accidents. Try to schedule a few 10-minute breaks throughout the day for a quick game of catch outdoors.
