Get ready to bring your pooch to work

WASHINGTON – If you see some furry friends at work Friday, they’re probably there because it’s ” Take Your Dog to Work Day.”

The Humane Society of the United States reports a 2010 study from Central Michigan University found dogs at work can lower absenteeism rates and improve relationships between coworkers.

Here are 10 companies that allow dogs at work (not just on this special holiday) from Mother Nature Network.

  • Replacements, Ltd.
  • Google
  • P&G Pet Care
  • Ben & Jerry’s
  • Autodesk
  • Build-A-Bear Workshop
  • Klutz
  • Humane Society
  • Amazon
