This year, Bring Your Dog to Work Day is on Friday, June 22. Can you imagine how great your work day would be if you could bring Spot to work everyday? Unfortunately, most companies do not allow employees to bring their pets with them to work. Thanks to dogfriendly.com and nwsource.com, we were able to find some Seattle-area companies that welcome our furry friends with open arms. So if bringing your pet to work is the most important priority for you in a job, then pass your resume along to one of these companies. Shh… Don’t tell your boss that it’s our fault.
A list of dog friendly companies after the jump.
