Dogs help people deal with stress

In our every day lives as adults, the challenging part of our day is not in the household or apartment. We experience it in our workplace. The major benefit of having a pet is reducing stress in their owners so what if #Dogs were allowed to roam free in our office space?

Bring Your Dog to #Work Day is now a big thing. You can even see videos circulating on social media about companies bringing in and welcoming these furry babies into employee work stations.

How awesome is that?

According to PopSugar.com, Tito's Vodka is a company that lets humans and dogs interact every day. Through this, it led to a campaign called Tito's Vodka For Dog People. The program even has a pet policy expert - Beth Bellanti is in charge of helping companies make a smooth transition into pet-friendly environments.

Having pets in the workplace gives you the following benefits:

1. Dogs are capable of calming people and improving their well-being.

Dogs have an unusual effect on workers. They exude playfulness and joy that it is quite contagious to people. It's a wonderful form of energy and having them around totally reduces stress.

2. Dogs help connect people and build relationships.

Bellanti says that there have been changes in the office. People are talking to each other better because of their pets. Stronger bonds are observed between co-workers. If someone is walking their dog or a puppy hovers around their desk, the #Employees are bound to talk to each other.

There are a lot of reasons why dogs can be beneficial for employees as they seem to improve their productivity and overall well-being. Numerous organizations have introduced this pet policy and they're embracing this change! However, not all companies are ready, so if you'd be willing to talk to your boss or to someone in charge, go for it!
