There are so many benefits to working with your dog. If you’re lucky enough to work with your dog tomorrow, or any day, please send us pictures. Tell us your favorite thing about going to work with your dog. Dr. Shreiber brings both of his dogs, Cosmo and Gracie, into the office every day. “From an anthropology point of view, mankind has a long history of taking dogs to work,” says Dr. Shreiber. “Farmers and shepherds have always had their faithful working dogs alongside them. Having your dog at work celebrates this natural historical bond. Your dog will benefit from having more time with you, and by taking a lunchtime walk with your dog, you will enjoy the benefits of your canine companion and some outdoor sunshine and exercise.”
