This Beer Company Gives Employees A Week Off When They Get A New Puppy
February 17, 2017
Scottish beer company Brewdog is offering employees with new dogs a week of "Puppy Parental Leave." Employees are also allowed to bring their dogs to work every day.
On February 20, the craft beer company is opening its first US base in Columbus, Ohio and will offer employees there the same perks.
At its headquarters in Aberdeenshire, the company currently has 50 office dogs it considers part of the staff.
Founders James Watt and Martin Dickie, who started the company with their dog Bracken in 2007, said they were eager to give workers enough time to bond with their new pets and not worry about their work suffering.
"Yes, having dogs in our offices makes everyone else more chilled and relaxed – but we know only too well that having a new arrival – whether a mewling pup or unsettled rescue dog – can be stressful for human and hound both.
"So we are becoming the first in our industry to give our staff to help settle a new furry family member into their home," the pair said in a company announcement.

"We're not aware of any other American company giving a week's leave to their staff to help build the bond between them and their dog – but then few other companies have four-legged friends at their center as we do," the CEOs added.
