Dog friendly office toolkit
A complete toolkit containing easy to follow processes, editable templates and useful guides walking you through the steps you need to take before and after opening your office doors to dogs in a safe and productive way. Allowing you to welcome all of the benefits that office dogs will bring without any distractions.
Allowing dogs into the workplace not only supports employee health and wellbeing but is a great tool for increasing engagement, attracting and retaining talent and fostering a positive culture.
So, whether you’re looking to allow dogs into your workplace for the first time, or you want to make your current arrangement more official, this comprehensive toolkit contains everything you need to quickly and easily put a framework in place to ensure you get all of the benefits of having dogs in your office, with none of the fuss.
Dogs have been shown to reduce stress so we think it’s important that the process of introducing them to your office is equally stress free. That’s why we have designed this toolkit in a way that guides you through what is required before, during and after welcoming dogs to your workplace. We have provided you with recommendations, key information and templates every step of the way so all you need to do is to decide which option is right for your organisation.
