Companies Let Pets Come To Work

January 17, 2013

From the San Diego Union Tribune article “Companies Let Pets Come To Work”:

“[..] David Gamboa sees no downside to having dogs in the North Park offices of his eight-person graphic design company, A7D Creative Group Inc.

He and his wife, Anna, often bring Amber, their 9-year-old Vizsla to work, and Kelli Wood, a graphic designer, will bring her pugs Philbert and Norman (though usually not both at once).

The dogs create a relaxed work environment, and the people don’t have to worry about leaving their dogs on their own all day.

Gamboa says there are few downsides. Mostly, the dogs sleep, play with toys or explore. When the sun streams in the front windows, he says, Amber finds a warm spot and takes a nap. Occasionally, when something catches her attention outside, she’ll bark. If she gets rambunctious, it passes quickly.

Recently, Gamboa said he was on the phone with a customer when her dog barked in the background.

“She’s like, ‘I’m really sorry,’ ” he said. “But I’m like, ‘No big deal, trust me.’”.
