If you have a pet dog, you know the pain you go through every morning when you leave for your job. The thought of you being away from your pet for some hours is devastating a little bit. But what if I tell you there is an office in the USA that allows dogs inside?
That’s right! Kurgo, a Massachusetts-based pet product start-up has the most dog-friendly office you’ve ever come across.
Kitter Spater started this company with his brother, Gordie Spater, in 2003. The company has 22 staff members and they sell everything related to dogs – water bowls, dog toys, backpacks, and leashes.
Catering to this need, the founders also made sure of the fact that their office premises are ultra dog-friendly: making it the coolest dog house ever!
Spread across 4000 sq feet, the staff members are allowed to get their own pet dogs inside the office. Let’s take a peek into their office:
The most noteworthy part of Kurgo’s office is how dogs were integrated into many of the design considerations. Each standing desk can come equipped with a size-appropriate dog bed. The kitchen has an easy-clean floor, and it’s always stocked with food and treats for the four-to-eight canines that come to work each day (about 90% of employees have dogs). There’s a low water fountain and specially-designed shower that will help hose off a muddy dog.
The sense of community among Kurgo dog owners is special, and they go on walks together during lunch and afternoon breaks. If a dog gets restless during the day, there are also baskets of toys stationed at the indoor play areas, which has an ulterior motive—product testing. After all, who better to try out the new products than the company’s favorite furry friends?
