Do you share an office with dogs? Do your woofly work colleagues run riot? You may need to introduce your furry friends to Yappy’s Office Dog Pawlicy!

As a company that specialises in personalised pet gifts, it’s perhaps no big surprise that Yappy HQ is very much a dog-friendly office.

We love our furry friends sharing our workspace but there are just a few rules our canine co-workers must obey for us to all work happily together, such as thou shalt not poopeth on the flooreth.

With dog-friendly offices becoming increasingly common in the UK, we thought it was the pawfect time to share our carefully curated dog office policy.

Do you share a workspace with dogs? See how many of these rules your furbulous office friends obey!

Yappy’s 10 Office Dog Rules

1. Say hello to every hooman in the office

Well, it’d be rude not to, right? Here’s Pepper the Miniature Dachshund happily smiling hello next to her very own personalised metal sign.

2. Thou shalt not poopeth on the flooreth

It’s the moment that no dog parent enjoys: that split second when their pup squats down into that all-too-familiar stance and all they can do is say no no no, not there! But it’s too late.

Luckily, our pooches are very good at telling us when they need to go and we have a large supply of poop bags on hand if an accident happens. You can get yours here!

3. Save zoomies for lunchtime walkies

Yup, that goes for Dougie the Greyhound too. We think he looks especially dashing zooming around in his custom dog collar.

4. Thou shalt not mistake a mouse for a real mouse

We know, we know, it’s an easy mistake to make. If your office dog is on the prowl for something squeaky then we’d recommend a toy instead!

5. No excessive barking

Bark? Me? Never! We think Pepper was simply too cosy here to make a peep.

6. Respect personal privacy of all staff (no sniffing bums)

We understand that’s how doggos say hello, but we hoomans do things a little differently.

7. Thou shalt not steal food from desks

Sorry, Lottie! Thankfully we have a range of yummy dog treats that our pups can tuck into instead.

8. Thou shalt not kill anything other than toys 

If your dog really wants to sink their teeth into something then we’ve got just the thing. No toys were harmed in the taking of this photo.

9. Thou shalt not commit dog-dultery – be loyal to your office dog buddy

Even if that office dog buddy, is in fact yourself. Well, when you’re this cute, who could blame Shelby?

10. Obey your dog pawrent at all times

Dog pawrents know best! Keep your furry friend close with cosy home comforts like an ultra-comfortable dog bed and a snuggly cushion.
