Dog Friendly Office Project: What Do you Like about Going to Work with Your Pet?

At free stitch, we are continuously working towards creating a better working environment for staff and their pets. We hope that through the growing popularity of the ‘Dog-Friendly Office Project’ we are helping to improve the quality of life for pets in Japan and around the world. 

In 2019, we launched a questionnaire to gather thoughts and opinions about bringing your dog or pet to work. In this questionnaire, we asked about the conditions of the workplace and whether there are the facilities to accommodate bringing pets to work.   

In this blog we are going to look at one of the questions and the responses we received: 

Q: ‘Please tell us what you think the benefits are of bringing your pet to work’
A: My dog wasn’t feeling so good on the day I took him to the office. I was able to notice the change in his condition and could take him to the vet immediately after work. 

We have received many answers to this question that have detailed the benefits of being able to monitor your pet’s health while working in the office. We feel it is an advantage to be able to monitor your pet’s pre-existing health conditions or respond quickly to any changes in their physical condition while working in the office. After all, your pet is a member of your family and their health should be taken seriously.   

In addition to bringing our pets to work, many free stitch staff also work at home so your pet can stay healthy and happy in an environment they are familiar with. 

If you are interested in being part of the Dog-Friendly Office Project, please feel free to complete the questionnaire (Japanese only).
