It has been proven that pets help reduce stress for their owner and those around them. So it makes sense to take them to work, right? Well if you ever find that you have the opportunity or you know someone who does… be sure to keep these tips from your Scottsdale pet sitter in mind:
- Be respectful of your co workers. It is not cute or polite for your dog to sniff, bark, or jump on other workers. Keep them confined to your own area.
- Bringing the comforts of home such as a bed or blanket, water bowl, and a “busy” toy is essential to give your dog the sense of their “spot”
- Keep your dog reined in tightly to your area so they do not wander off into your co workers space.
- Make sure you take the outside for potty breaks away from the common areas where people might take a break.
- Only consider taking your dog if they are well trained and listen to you.
