Searching for a new career opportunity? These companies allow you to bring your dog to the office.
Are you ready for a career change?
With working from offices set to return in the coming months, finding a job that allows you to take your pup along is more important than ever, especially after over a year of having them by your side every day. More time to spend with our furry friends was an unexpected positive that came from being forced to work remotely due to the pandemic, but it has also meant that many dogs are suffering from separation anxiety which can be particularly worrying for owners. Luckily, these 10 dog-friendly companies all welcome your dogs to join you at the office, with many also offering remote working, or a combination of both - and they are all hiring now.
