Ok, I love my dog. Her name is Zoe. She's great. But do I want to bring her to work? Not really.
I have my own office, so I can do it. I have done it. I can have her curl up under my desk at any time and I can shoo her out too. But, if I worked in an office and several of my co-workers brought in their pooches, I'd probably take a vacation day.
Does that make me a bad person?
I give to the Humane Society -- heck, Zoe is a pound puppy herself -- so I'm not anti-canine. I just don't think that this is an idea for my own workstyle.
In real estate, there are constant battles with dog lovers (and those with cats and other pet types) to convince them that not everyone loves their "baby" as much as they do... and perhaps "out of sight" is the best approach for showings.
So how many agents/brokers encourage this event in public offices? I'm just curious, because I can't imagine that anyone does.
Now, before you ask, Zoe is terribly un-photogenic (just like her owner) and she's not a pit bull (I get that question all the time) -- she's a boxer mix. She's also horribly dangerous -- if you are allergic to pet slobbers.
