7 Reasons Why Mission Pets Is a Pet Friendly Office (and Why Yours Should Be, Too!)

How many times have you had to leave for work and your pup gives you the "don't leave me" look? What if you didn’t have to feel that way when you left for work in the morning?

Mission pets has a pet-friendly office, and every day we see the benefits of having our furry friends here with us in the office.

It’s not just pet companies that share this opinion. Many large businesses (Google Salesforce, Etsy, Amazon and Clif Bar) as well as co-working offices (WeWork) are pet friendly. Check out the hashtag #DogsofWeWork to see over 3,500 pics of cute pups at WeWork on Instagram.

Here are just a few benefits of bringing a dog to work:


1. REDUCED STRESS

A 2012 study by Virginia Commonwealth University found that stress levels declined throughout the day for employees who brought their dog to the office and increased for employees with no pets or for employees who left their dogs at home. Also, the pet-friendly office tested in the experiment had lower stress levels than the industry average, showing that there were benefits for the company as a whole, not just the pet owners who brought their dog to the office.
