Why did it take so long to get to this point? Some companies are giving workers paid leave to take care of their new dogs! Some of the few that do it include Mars Petcare, Mparticle, BitSol Solutions, and BrewDog. The give anywhere from a day to a week or two of leave so you can stay home and get your puppy housebroken.
There are even a few companies that give bereavement days for people who have lost their pets, too. Kimpton Hotels, Mars Ince, VMware, and Trupanion are just a few of the companies that will give you a much-needed few paid days off while you mourn your pet.
