Benefits of Dogs in the Workspace - Sharedspace

Benefits of Dogs in the Workspace

Boost the productivity of your workspace by introducing a doggo friend to your office  


Dog-friendly workspaces are becoming increasingly popular and we can totally see why! Bringing your pet to work will not only add cuteness to your day but it can actually bring many positive benefits to your office.

Studies have proven that dogs (and pets) have calming effects, reduce blood pressure, lower stress and boost employee productivity. Bringing your dog to work can increase social interactions and promote an atmosphere of teamwork and communication as it becomes a shared interest among employees.

Did we also mention that dogs in the workspace can encourage an active and healthy workspace? With every dog-enthusiast volunteering to take the dog out for walks or a litte playtime, this is the easiest way to take short breaks from your desk, breathe in some fresh air and get your daily steps up!
