Kurgo, a company for dogs, has an eco-friendly office designed to make both its human employees and their dogs happy at work.
If you’ve ever thought that it would be cute or convenient to be able to bring your dog to work, you probably imagined your dog hanging out at your own normal office by your side. But have you ever thought about what it might look like if you worked at an office specifically designed to accommodate humans and their dogs?
Kurgo is a company that makes products for dogs that have active families, so it only makes sense that their warehouse would be transformed into an office space where, not only can employees bring their dogs, but also the dogs would actually enjoy staying.
Daniel Sokol from Lead Containers designed the space starting in 2015, and he actually used shipping containers and reclaimed wood panels to build the walls and structure. The eight offices are all filled with natural light on a 4,000 square foot expanse of land in Massachusetts.
The best part is the interior, which is filled with synthetic grass patches, playgrounds, dog toys, and a faucet in the wall to fill up water bowls.
In addition to being an incredibly unique office made of eco-friendly materials, it was made specifically with dogs in mind so that the pups can come to work rather than spending all day at home.
Though not every company can afford to start over with a new office space to build a similar dog-friendly environment, it would be awesome to see more workplaces allowing people to bring their dogs with them to the office. Experts say that bringing dogs to work can increase productivity and cause co-workers to be nicer and more agreeable.
