The 10 most dog-friendly companies of 2019

Wiliam ButinJune 16, 2019

Tech companies are well-known for using lavish office perks to attract millennial talent, and their bring-your-pet-to-work policies are catching on in other industries.

The benefits back them up. According to job site Glassdoor, bringing your dog to work offers not only stress relief and work-life balance for owners, but promotes collaboration, employee wellness, and retention and recruiting throughout the office.

Rover, an online platform for finding pet sitters and dog walkers, has released a ranking of the most dog-friendly companies. If you’d like to work somewhere where any day can be Take Your Dog To Work Day, consider one of these 10 employers:

10. Uber
Headquarters: San Francisco, CA

Uber is known for its many office perks, including wine on tap, but one that stands out is unlimited PTO that allows new dog owners to train at home before bringing their pet to the office – where dog beds are scattered to allow pups to lounge around.

9. Ceros
Headquarters: New York, NY

The software company produces an annual Dogs of Ceros calendar, and also offers partial pet insurance coverage.

8. Zogics
Headquarters: Lenox, MA

The fitness equipment wholesaler has adopted a “pawternity” policy, which includes a $200 pet store gift card, one extra week of PTO, and a lifetime supply of Zogics pet shampoo (the gym equipment company also produces its own pet care line).

Naturally, a pet retailer like Petco allows dogs – and all employee pets – in the office as well as product discounts for those employees who adopt.

6. Nestle Purina Petcare
Headquarters: St. Louis, MO

The company holds the world record for most pets in an office at one time. Dogs are more than welcome at the corporate campus, which includes a dog park. A $250 stipend is awarded per adoption, making it easier for employees to become pet owners.

Just like their two-legged owners, dogs at Airbnb are given their own “employee” badges to scan in every day, and show up in the company’s internal database.
