Many people want to bring their pets with them to work, and those who choose where to work can intentionally pick a location that is dog friendly. This is a major advantage for those in search of a coworking space and do not want to leave their pooch at home due to anxiety issues or concerns about lack of care. If you work in a pet-friendly space, you don’t have to worry about hiring a dog walker, as you can just take a break to take care of this.
Pets are also associated with a long list of other benefits, whether in a traditional office or a coworking space. These include stress relief and promotion of positive social interactions. With so many coworking spaces around the world, it should come as no surprise that each major city has at least a handful of dog-friendly options.
