During the pandemic, there was a dramatic increase in the number of dogs in the UK. it increased from 23% to 34%.
Because of a series of confinement policies, many people are fighting loneliness by getting a dog.
These dogs, adopted during the pandemic, were very special. Because of the confinement policies, they had no social skills and had never left their owners, they were severely under-socialised. What do these dogs do when life gets back on track and their owners need to get back to work?
Thankfully, there are many dog-friendly co-working spaces. They can take the dogs to work and can provide a transition time for the pandemic dogs and their owners.
After I experienced a dog-friendly co-working space. I found that the existing dog friendly offices simply allow dogs in without really being dog friendly. For example, the space materials are not dog friendly, active dogs are required to be leashed up, there is no dog-only space for activities, etc.
So why not create a new type of office space that is more dog friendly?
Traditional dog-friendly co-working spaces are people first and dogs second. But why not dogs first and people second? In this space, the dog's rules are the rules and whatever is done is done right.
