Inside the World’s Most Dog-Friendly Office

Creating a doggie heavenIn search of an office big enough for its staff and their dogs, Kurgo, a Salisbury, Massachusetts-based startup that makes dog-travel gear, took over its own 4,000-square-foot warehouse in 2015. (Here, Josie “the jumper” lounges near the creative department.)

Marking the territory – The centerpieces of the office’s structure are massive orange shipping containers–the very same ones Kurgo’s products are imported in. Wood paneling for walls and desks is reclaimed from Maine rivers. (Here, Mia, a yellow Lab, attends a meeting.) IMAGE: COURTESY COMPANY

 

Roaming with Rover – In addition to the shipping containers and reclaimed wood, a vintage 1956 Airstream trailer adds personality to Kurgo’s office. The founders say the trailer reminds them of travels with their family dogs. IMAGE: COURTESY COMPANY

 

Fetching amenities – Humans weren’t the only considerations in building out Kurgo’s offices. The ample kitchen has an easy-clean floor, and is always stocked with kibble and treats for the four-to-eight pups that come along to work each day. IMAGE: COURTESY COMPANY

 

Creativity booster – “Besides being great stress relievers, the dogs boost creativity, testing our products and providing us with ideas for new ones,” says Kurgo co-founder Kitter Spater. No word on whether they’ve tried the slide. IMAGE: COURTESY COMPANY

 

Lap of luxury – The new office features numerous amenities for dog owners, including a low water fountain, fake grass to create indoor play areas, and baskets of dog toys. IMAGE: COURTESY COMPANY

 

Pack mentality – The dog-friendly office provides a natural community for the dog owners too. They not only go on walks during lunch or afternoon breaks (dubbed “stink and steps”), but also often volunteer to watch one anothers’ pooches for weekends away. IMAGE: COURTESY COMPANY

 

Shake it off – After that long lunchtime walk, a shower specially designed to help hose off muddy puppies is a neat, if unusual, addition to the company bathroom. IMAGE: COURTESY COMPANY

 

Sit, stand, roll over – Kurgo’s offices are customizable, with standing desks for the employee and beds for any size of pooch. (Here, a Lab named Clover relaxes, while his human, Lisa, works.) IMAGE: COURTESY COMPANY

 

Spreading the love – Kurgo doesn’t just love its own dogs, like Mia, here. It also hosts occasional after-work “Yappy Hours” so dog owners can connect. And it launched Dogs Allowed, a database of dog-friendly businesses. IMAGE: COURTESY COMPANY

    The Kurgo’s offices are amazing as these offices are not only designed and built to meet their staff’s needs in order to carry out their tasks, but also including the welfare and necessities for the furry friends to stay protected, emotionally and physically taken care of, while the pet owners can focus in their work without any worries of their dogs. There is so much compassion, kindness, care and love filled within the amenities, which I believe could be the keys to success for that organization because the harmony-with-animals environment allows the staff there to stay relax and enjoying their work. Hence, this can lead them to generate new ideas for improvement at work and able to increase productivity as well. Most importantly, people there are given the opportunity to learn on how to stay with the dogs under the same work place because it takes a lot of patience, care and compassion to communicate and interact with the dogs. Eventually, the staff there can easily pick up and practise the qualities of respect, love, tolerance, kindness, compassion and selflessness.

    May all the animals will be blessed and protected by all the Buddhas, able to gain good and higher rebirth to learn and practise Dharma until achieving enlightenment.

    I personally think that this is a very good practice where the employees no longer have to worry about leaving pets at home alone. The work environments that cultivate loving kindness, caring and compassion create a much more positive and productive place to work.
    It may influence everyone especially those who do not have pets to be kinder to animals.
    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for this interesting article as a reminder to us to love and be kind to animals no matter where we are.🙏😍

    Many companies especially in overseas are very considerate and allow their employees to bring their dogs to work. I personally think that this is a very good practice where the employees no longer have to worry about leaving pets at home alone. The work environments that cultivate loving kindness, caring and compassion create a much more positive and productive place to work. Besides, it may influence everyone especially those who do not have pet to be more kind to the animals.

    Nevertheless, the employer and employees may have to work together to maintain the safe and cleanliness work place such as reduce odour, provide clean air and many others.

    Thank you for this interesting article as a reminder to us to love and be kind to animals no matter where we are.

  4. Jill Yam on Sep 5, 2016 at 4:11 pm

    Just fantastic. Imagine to have a place like this here where we can bring our furry friends with us to work.

    Both owners and dogs will be happy to be together at work and the dog don’t need to be lonely at home. Just love this concept very much.

  5. Sofi on Aug 18, 2016 at 4:49 am

    It is so lovely for Kurgo to create such a dog friendly environment for its staff and their dogs. Nowadays, many people regard their dogs as their own children and spend as much time and money on their dogs as they would their own children (if they had any). Therefore it make sense for Kurgo to provide its offices to be dog friendly as its staff will have the ease of mind of having their “children” there with them. The dogs will be happy to have their owners with them instead of being home alone.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such an interesting concept that provides peace of mind for its staff and their dogs. I am sure that the productivity of the staff increases as they are able to focus more on their work without worry of their “children”.

  6. Wan Wai Meng on Aug 3, 2016 at 12:20 pm

    This is such a creative and neat way to have your pets with us. More companies should provide facility for dogs to come to work as well. Pets can always do what we least we anticipate so they can really surprise us.

  7. Sock Wan on May 25, 2016 at 9:02 pm

    Cute! This is so wonderful that the office is animal friendly. If the animal is well trained, they will be a jewel to be with when we are too stress out from work. More work place should do the same.

    • Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on May 25, 2016 at 10:43 pm

      Hi Sock Wan! I agree with you about the pleasures of a well-trained furry friend. Awareness of pet care and responsibility is not very high in Malaysia yet, and this education starts from young. One of the problems is parents buying pets as gifts for their children. First, it teaches their kids that an animal’s life is a commodity that can be readily traded.

      Second, if the motivation is to get the pet as a plaything or companion for the child, then the approach is wrong from the outset – there is no sense of responsibility for a plaything and at the point of purchase, you’re doing so with the unconscious assumption that no further care is necessary. But dog or cat or gerbil or whatever isn’t an inanimate doll or toy that can be put to one side once you’re bored with them. Once that reality sets in, that is why we often see animals being abandoned at shelters (if lucky) or the roadside (if not so lucky) because the parents didn’t factor in the time taken to properly care for their new furry friend.

      If Malaysians are educated into pet care, they will find that a furry friend can give us years of love if we train them well!

    I love what these people have done with their office! Absolutely love it! So nice of them and very thoughtful. I find that not only does it make the environment more friendly and attractive for their dogs, but it also gives more life to the office area. I can imagine that most office areas are dull and rather boring, so by doing something like this is really lights up the space and gives a cozy creative feel to the workplace 🙂

    And obviously the best part about this is that it is friendly for their dogs. Dogs are known to be mens best friend and they deserve the treatment of a best friend. I already love how these people want to take their dogs to work with them, so it actually only makes sense to make the environment better for their dogs. Their business is also based around dogs so im sure this would increase their publicity and image as a brand or business. It benefits them and the dogs around them. Excellent!

  9. Joy on Apr 12, 2016 at 5:56 pm

    Oh wow this is so cool and creative and great office! I wish we can have this in Malaysia. However the pet owner must be just as mature and responsible for their dogs otherwise having such amenities does not help but could create more mess. So although I love the idea, I would love it better when dog owner really take responsibility and real care for their babies… yes because our pets are just like our children. They are not toys and not to be pushed or dump on to someone to take care when you are “busy”. Hence although I myself is an animal lover, because of my work schedule, I make a decision not to have my own pets because I know I cannot give them that time and care as I would like to.

    In the end it is the pets that suffer which I think isn’t fair at all. Most people have pets for their own selfish reasons – to keep them company because they are lonely… I know a few. So I hope more awareness is created and educated to pet owners, that our pets are like our children is being instilled in pet owners.

  10. Pastor Moh Mei on Apr 8, 2016 at 2:01 am

    I’m happy to hear that people are creating these dog friendly office spaces but I don’t necessarily agree it is a fair workplace. I am all against animal abuse but a workplace has to be fair to all. There are people who do not like dogs. So are we going to start discriminating people who doesn’t like dogs? If you can bring dogs to work then what about other pets like cats and fish, etc. What about bringing children to work?

    Does it really create a more productive work environment or more distraction? I’m sure dog lovers will be over the moon about this but I still think we should keep work place as work place and personal interest separate.

  11. Pastor Shin on Mar 27, 2016 at 12:09 am

    A 2015 Society for Human Resource Management survey found 8 percent of American workplaces allow employees to bring their furry loved ones to work, and up from 5 percent in 2013. These companies include Amazon, Etsy, Google, Bissell, Clif Bar, Petco and etc.

    Some companies have dog owner play groups and offer pooch play areas, pet gates in cubicles, and a few provide free pet training, pet walkers, off-site pet sitters as well as pet pampering services such as grooming and dog spas.

    It was reported that the millennial segment (18- to-34-year-olds) tends to look at their pets “as practice families or substitute families”, instead of “just a pet”. Nowadays, companies have to invest in employees’ lives beyond their workstations and a decent salary. Some employers shared that employees who are allowed to bring their pets to work are more focused, more comfortable at the office willing to work longer hours.

    It is nice to have a dog/pet-friendly office. I am sure if we ask around, many would be enthusiastic, but there will be some who would find it uncomfortable to work alongside certain animals, and there is also possible complications: people with allergies. As such, it is wise to look into how best to develop dog-in-the-workplace policy before we copy and implement other people’s ideas without proper planning.

  12. Beatrix Ooi on Mar 22, 2016 at 3:44 pm

    This is really cute, I hope more offices, companies and public places around the world will soon follow their footsteps and change their policies. It takes people with a huge passion towards animals to build this, I personally think that its not easy because it requires love, carefulness and safety precautions in order to make sure that the environment is dog-friendly so they don’t get hurt. I’m very happy to see this because pets are just like our family members and its not safe to leave them alone at home when we go to work.

  13. wooishen on Mar 8, 2016 at 7:57 pm

    Thanks for the sharing…

    Wish to hv a office like that in MY…
    It part of my dream to create this office environment…

    Beside that Labrador are the man best friends…

    I hv one Labrador follow me around at house…..

  14. Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Mar 8, 2016 at 2:49 pm

    This reminds me of a video I watched recently, filmed in the Oracle offices in Japan. A dog by the name of Heidi has been roaming their halls for the last 10 years (or was it 12?) so that the workers can pet her, give her treats, etc. They have found that Heidi’s presence helped to reduce workplace related stress and boost productivity. The film was done because Heidi was retiring and being replaced by another dog. If a company like Oracle in a country that’s as advanced as Japan sees the merit in having a dog roaming the halls to boost job performance, what’s the rest of the world waiting for!

  15. Sarah Yap on Mar 8, 2016 at 4:09 am

    Incredible! Absolutely love the idea of a dog friendly office.

  16. Jutika Lam on Mar 6, 2016 at 10:15 pm

    This idea of a dog friendly office is a really good idea!

    It is great to see the owners of Kurgo give plenty of attention to their furry four pawed pals!

    More offices should be designed in such a concept that it would be pet friendly, offices are the places where the environment can be a bit stressful sometimes but with pets around, staff can always take some time off and just let of some steam by cuddling or playing with the pets!

  17. JP on Mar 6, 2016 at 9:50 pm

    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for the article. It’s very thoughtful of the company to allow their staff to bring pets in to the office. Dogs are like a 3 year old kid. If left alone for a while, they will get depressed and unhappy. If you ever have a pet dog, you’ll know what I mean.

    Most of them love to hang out with their master. They will follow wherever the master goes. So I can imagine how happy the dogs are for being able to go to work with their masters.

    For the masters, they also have a peace of mind and would most probably perform better at work because they won’t have the constant worry of their pet dog. This is a win win situation. Thanks for the great story!

    Thank you Pastor David for this very well-written article. It describes Rinpoche’s room and life just as what I have the honoured to have observed with my own eyes. Everything Rinpoche did was for the long term benefit of others, and the equanimity he applied onto everyone including the animals impressed me tremendously. If you think Rinpoche treated his mumus like prince and princess, that’s the way he treated all of us. If you think Rinpoche was very strict to His students, this is how he trained his mumus too. If you think he is very “OCD” in planting Dharma imprints on us, he did exactly the same to his mumus and all the animals. Not only that, he would tirelessly use many different methods and approaches according to every single individual’s levels of comprehension to make sure they will get the maximum benefits out of his skilfull teachings, either now or in the future. This is the guru who made me value the importance of Dharma.

    Thank you for the sharing , it has very informative information. It is necessary to take serious action to prevent environment and save earth, to reuse and recycle. We should correct our mistakes, selfishness towards our environment. Every single action taken is to maintain the originality of the environment, if for our betterment to make live healthy and safe from pollution.

    Though government has formulated various schemes and established laws to prevent and to save the nature environment. Yet it should be still the duty of each individually to protect it for our future generations, as we are the people consuming its benefits.

    It is hard to believe but true that only a little positive movements by everyone may bring a huge change in the declining environment. Glad to read about the inventors ideas to protect the nature and help to save our environment. A good article to be shared with family and friends.

    “NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Humane law enforcement agents of the ASPCA arrested a Queens woman accused of animal neglect.

    Acting on an anonymous complaint, ASPCA agents went to the residence of 47-year-old Ana Herra and found a female mixed breed dog named Julie, who was in “terrible condition.”

    According to Joseph Pentangelo, the Assistant Director for Humane Law Enforcement at the ASPCA, when authorities came upon the dog, she was “very weak” and “in need of medical attention.”

    Pentangelo told 1010 WINS Saturday that the dog had to be euthanized after having a physical exam at Bergh Memorial Animal Hospital.

    “Her health was very compromised and she had not had veterinary attention in a long period of time,” he said.

    Herra was charged with one count of misdemeanor animal cruelty. She faces up to one year in jail and/or a $1,000 fine.

    “Animals do depend on us for their care and nobody has to own a pet. But if you do own a pet, you should recognize the responsibility and there are laws that involve that responsibility,” Pentangelo said.”

    This depicts a Tibetan system with dealing with corpses. After prayers have been done by the Monks, the cemetery workers will slice up the body of the dead, mix it with barley flour and with prayers scatter it to the vultures. It is the last act of giving for the person who has eaten flesh themselves their whole lives.

    It reminds us that our bodies are borrowed and VERY TEMPORARY. It is not a good idea to attach so much to our bodies, but more to our minds. Our minds will leave the bodies and whether we bury, cremate or feed it to animals, we will have to leave it. We have left our bodies so many times in our previous lives and we have no memory of it and neither does anyone else. Some people might find it disrespectful to feed the bodies to the animals, but our bodies will be eaten by insects/maggots anyways when buried. What we do with the dead doesn’t so much affect the dead. It is more for the living. But then the living quickly becomes the dead anyways and then everything is forgotten.

    So what is important, is to take care of the mind. Start now. Whenever you feel like quitting, remember your mortality and all the karmas you have accumulated. Nothing is harder than to control one’s negativities and fears, but death doesn’t stop anything, it is just carried over into future lives. So deal with yourselves now and overcome now. THERE’S NO ESCAPE FROM THE SELF.

    The Yong He Gong Lama Temple, also known as the ‘Palace of Peace and Harmony Lama Temple’, is a temple and monastery of the Gelug (Yellow Hat) School of Tibetan Buddhism. It is located in the North-Eastern central part of Beijing.

    Yong He Gong was built in the 33rd year during the reign of Emperor Kang Xi (1694). It was built as the residence for his 4th son, Prince Yong Zheng. In 1722, Prince Yong Zheng ascended to the throne and moved to the Forbidden City. However, he still had great affection towards the mansion as he had been living there for 30 years. In his third year of reign, Emperor Yong Zheng upgraded it and named the mansion to Yong He Gong.

    In 1735, Emperor Yong Zheng passed away and his body was temporarily kept there. After his passing, Emperor Qian Long ascended to the throne. In his 9th year of reign he followed his mother’s instructions, took into consideration his father’s belief in Buddhism and he rebuilt the major halls into Buddhist ones, transforming it into a Tibetan Buddhist temple!

    In the Falun Hall, also known as the Great Hall of Scriptures, sits a grand 6 metre statue of the founder of the Gelugpa school, Lama Tsongkhapa. Below is an article on the restoration of Lama Tsongkhapa in the heart of Beijing, China. Take a look at how they restore the gold painting on the beautiful Lama Tsongkhapa. Very nice restoration of something culturally very important to the Chinese nation.

    Pemako is located in southeast Tibet. In Tibetan, the word “Pemako” means “Lotus Array” or “Lotus of Great Bliss”. It is a land that intrigues many Western explorers as it is thought to be the sacred land of nectar and bliss as described in Buddhist scriptures.

    Pemako is thought to be one of the 16 earthly paradises, a promised land where humanity will survive in the event of worldwide famine or calamities. It was also referred to by Guru Rinpoche as the “supreme hidden land”. Guru Rinpoche had concealed 108 “beyuls” or “hidden valleys” in the Himalayas to be revealed at specific times during the degenerate age. Shambala is the greatest hidden valley, Pemako is another one of them. The Buddhist texts describe these hidden valleys as being reminiscent of paradise. They can only be reached with enormous hardship, and those who force their way through may encounter failure or even, death.

    The landscape and geography of Pemako is shaped like that of Vajrayogini’s sacred body in a sleeping posture form.

    Her head is Kangri Kangpo (White Snow Mountain)
    Her two bosoms are Namche Barwa and Gyala Peri (both mountains)
    The lower part of her body lies in Yang Sang (upper Siang region of Arunachal Pradesh)
    Her sacred triangle is at the confluence of Siang and Yang Sang (rivers)
    Her sacred vulva is at Kila Yangzom
    Her navel is a small Nyingmapa monastery called Rinchenpung

    This is such a heart-warming story, to go the extra mile for an animal that cannot even say thank you. As a good human being, we have to be kind and generous to not just our kind but to animals as well. We should be even kinder to animals because they are the weaker ones.

    Human beings take away their habitats but all they can do is to try to find another place to live in. They have no one to complain to, there is no justice for them. The least we can do is not to harm them and help them whenever we can.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this worthy thoughts. The truth is, if we want to forget something , we need to let go, forgive ourselves, forgive the situation, and realize that the situation is over to move forward in life. Letting go can be one of the most difficult things we can do in our life. If we do not let go we cannot move on, we got to create space to for a new beginning and meaningful life.

    Inspiring story of Pang Mipham Gönpo an eighty years old man realising death is near, and had wasted most of his life. He wanted to achieve the highest meditative realisations till his last breath of his life. Well , this is an example for us not to give up whatever matters how hard the situation is.
    Age is just a number, Pang Mipham Gönpo met his famous teacher the learned pandit Vairochana and great translator for dharma practice. He practised diligently with the aid of a stick to hold up his chin and a meditation-strap to keep his legs crossed. His determination pays off, he gained realization and attained the rainbow body.
    Regardless of how old we are and how difficult it is to practise the Dharma is the right choice. Courage and practice is the most important of all the virtues in spite of all obstacles. With determination, it helps get us through tough situations in life. An inspiring story….a reminder for us not to give up in difficult situation .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing and the profound teachings.

    We should follow our guru not because of his fame, rank, prestige, power or number of students he has or how big his organization is, but because he helped us to transform our minds to be a better person and we can see this within ourselves. This transformation is sacred. Because he gave us dharma from his heart and loved us.

    I thought I would take the opportunity to introduce all of you to the Kalachakra Tantra and Shambhala, but this post is actually about a beautiful hotel that is in Lhasa, Tibet that I thought I would share with you. It was the architecture that captured my eye, which I found to be very striking and an attractive mix of traditional and modern.

    Find out more of this mystical place and the hotel with its namesake: http://bit.ly/HouseOfShambala

    Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain at Kechara Forest Retreat!

    In order for KFR to truly become a place of healing, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche has conceived a number of ideas including the newly-opened Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain. Embedded within the fountain are semi-precious stones that were especially consecrated by Dorje Shugden while in trance of the Panglung Oracle; His Holiness Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche, widely accepted to be a living emanation of Vajrayogini; our own Tsem Rinpoche and His Eminence Gangchen Rinpoche, an emanation of Medicine Buddha himself. When the water runs over these stones, it becomes charged with the healing properties of the stones and imbued with its blessings.

    Find out about the powerful healing benefits here: http://bit.ly/MedicineBuddhaFountain

    Thank you for the wonderful sharing. I have read that Japan has variety of famous places in the world. It’s a country full of incredible beauty, fantastic mountain view and many wonders beyond the culture.

    Never thought of the awesome villages, offering most spectacular scenery. I loved to see the nature beauty of Nagiso-machi and Kyogoku-cho. Wow extremely wonderful. I also read that Japan has a beautiful weather and a wonderful climate.
    The photographs was extremely good on the villages.

    The photographs was extremely good on the villages. Hope to visit Japan to explore and the experience further on the three main amazing and attractive villages.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
