If you are among the fortunate who get to bring your furry sidekick to work, preserve the privilege by turning your dog into Canine Employee of the Month:
Mind the manners. Beef up on those manners cues, so Sit, Stay, and Quiet are nice and reliable.
Come prepared. Your doggy daypack should include food, treats, a leash, poop bags, a favorite chew toy, a dog bed or blanket, and pet-odor remover in case of accidents.
Be mindful of others. Not everyone is a dog lover and it’s your responsibility to keep Fido away from anyone who might not appreciate dog kisses, paw prints, and a hair shower.
Take breaks together. Schedule at least two breaks for your pooch to stretch his legs and go potty. If possible, spend your lunchtime together, perhaps with a nice walk.
