Lifestyle The List

If you're like most Americans’, you're at work 47 hours a week. That’s a lot, so you might as well have some fun. And one way to do it, get a cool boss who'll "throw you a bone," and let you bring your best friend with you. Jimmy Rhoades and Ed Robson have three benefits you’ll experience when bringing your dog to work.

1.  Improved Focus

It's about taking that time after a long meeting, or working really hard, hitting reset, and saying, "I'm gonna spend these five minutes being happy!” and it can fulfill the rest of your day.

2.  Better Work Performance

It's those times you get to spend with your dog that make you feel happy, and the happier you are at work, the better you're going to work.

3.  Healthy for Your Dog

When you get to hang out with your dog all day at work, they're socializing with new people, they're meeting new dogs, they're keeping mentally stimulated, and that's amazing for your dog. This is something that will actually make them happy, and you!

Of course it’s up to the company you work for, if you’re allowed to take your pet to the office.
