While I'm sure there are certain stipulations, like restrictions as to certain days of the week, how many can participate, and how to manage unruly or tempermental pets.
But any way you look at the concept, it's still pretty attractive.
With the scientific evidence that people with pets have lower levels of stress and are happier with their lives, imagine the rewards when people are allowed to have their pets as companions throughout their work day.
It's truly a very forward-thinking benefit, one that certainly requires a lot of forethought and planning.
Necessities like having proper places for the pets to relieve themselves, eat a meal and rest are important requirements to establishing the program.
There's also an exercise component, as its important for pets to get daily workouts in order to stay healthy.
Someone that brings their dog to work might be able to roll a ball down an aisle while on a quick break, giving their pup something to chase.
Or if there is a fenced area outside for bathroom breaks, in nice weather there could be some Frisbee fun.
But what about if your pet is a cat? What does Fifi get to do? A small piece of furniture like a cat condo might be just what kitty ordered.
While some other models are tall and bulk, a cat condo is fairly compact and unobtrusive, making it the perfect size for a standard cubicle or small office.
A cat condo is essentially a miniature version of a cat tree, while still providing a platform, enclosure or hanging toy mouse for cats to play with.
If you're interested in spending more time with your pet, talk to your human resources manager and offer to outline a detailed plan to implement an official pet program.
