Pawternity leave (puppy parental leave)

Well done to UK-based brewing company BrewDog.  The company was dog-friendly from its 2007 start – with 2 human founders and 1 dog.

Now with employees in the USA and UK, and already with dog-friendly offices, they have instituted one week of puppy parental leave for their employees.  When a new dog comes into your life, you can have a week off to get it settled.

This video tells you a bit more about it:

The Puppy Parental Leave policy is a first for the brewing industry.  Let’s hope more follow – along with companies in other industries.

Dogs are great for our health and well-being.  Happy dog owners also make happy and engaged employees when they feel that their status as dog parents is recognised.
