View Full Version : Office pet?

08-03-2010, 09:42 AM
Hiya, I'm new to these forums so not sure where to post!

There has been talk at work of fostering a pet in the office (well one person taking cheif care but bringing it to work every day) I would imagine this will be a dog. I've not experienced a work place with resident animals... not including occasional mice!

Does anyone have experience of this?

I've spotted a Facebook chat on Ask Jeeves page with RSPCA this Friday 6th August) I'm sure they can shed some light on this for me! More details here: http://bit.ly/clqi8Q

thanks in advance for your advice :D

Welcome to the forum. There si nothing wrong with an office pet, so long as it is a well behaved one, nothing worse then walking into a buisness to the smell of dog feces or urine, or both and a barking aggressive dog. But so long as the animal is friendly, reserved and trained, I think an office pet is a great idea.

what a great thought having a pet about the office i think its a great idea. Pets can melt the hardest of hearts and really influence a potential customer. A bit like pat dogs in hospitals and old peoples homes that have such a calming influence and those around them. Apparently in Paris it is very common for people to take their dogs to the office.

Many offices nowadays have a more relaxed pet policy, but there's definitely a good way to go around this and a bad way. The Partnership for Animal Welfare has come up with a few tips for making Zippy's trip to the office a good one.

The idea of having a office pet is also good.. remember dogs are also keen in things happening around them..

Office pets are great as long as long as other office animals (humans) are all happy with the idea. I have had an office cat that a couple members did not care for even though when asked they acted indifferent. It came back to bite us on the but!

I got the cords out of the reach of the cat and now I’m searching for some pet safe blinds. So far I was only able to find child safe blinds such as these.
