Pets are an integral part of your life, aren’t they? You can’t leave them alone at home and go off to work for 8 to 10 hours. We are sure even you will be terribly worried for leaving them alone at home. Imagine having you pet smiling at you while you work, or in lunch breaks you could play with your dog. Sounds super fun isn’t it? Hence, there are few companies in India who give you an option to bring your pet along to work and make you totally worry-free.
The first one is Chaayos. It is located in Mumbai, Delhi, Gurgaon and Noida. This fun chai adda allows you to bring your dog along with you there. So, you don’t have to worry about if your pet has eaten food at home or not, or has he wet your couch. Just give your furry friend a big hug and make your work station a better place.
As the name suggests, they love dogs to the core. Please tell me you could feel the same kind of excitement while reading this as I felt when I was writing it. The company happily welcomes your pet dog at work and ensures that you aren’t stressed out at all, as your best playmate is here to give you a hug every 5 minutes.

The Café Canine in Gurgaon is a café solely dedicated to dogs. You can throw your dog a dog party or pamper them with some grooming and what not. One thing that your dog will enjoy the most is the pool, ah what a relief in summer! Isn’t it?
6. The Start-up Center
The Start-Up Center in Chennai also has its own dog mascot, Miko a mix breed of Labrador and Doberman. However, the dogs need to be trained enough to be tagged along to the workplace. Miko allows the employees to relax their head by playing with him for a while and make the environment stress free for a better output.

Everyone knows that Google is a dream work place for everyone. Employees get lavish lunches, luxury services, massages etc. what takes away the cake here is that you could bring you dog to office as well. Google has a dog policy which allows the employees to follow some basic guidelines for their dog and they are good to go. However, there isn’t very good news for cat owners, as Google has mentioned in their terms that “Google's affection for our canine friends is an integral facet of our corporate culture. We like cats, but we're a dog company, so as a general rule we feel cats visiting our offices would be fairly stressed out.”

Amazon has a very dog-friendly environment. The headquarters in Seattle welcomes dogs at workplace with all the warmth. However, the employee needs to first register the pet in the company and make sure that all its vaccinations are done. We hope that soon Amazon India allows the employees too, to bring their dog to work.
10. Procter & Gamble

There are a number of brands that come under Procter & Gamble and P&G’s pet care division is amongst them. This firm allows you to bring your dog to work everyday. The most interesting part is that they have a dog called Euka, a cross between a Bernese mountain dog and Labrador who was the vice president of Canine Communications. Isn’t that amazing?
