April 30, 2012 Study finds dogs may lower stress in workplace
(CBS News) A new study finds that bringing your dogs to work can make you feel better, all day long.
According to a new study by Virginia Commonwealth University, dog owners who brought their pets to work had stress lower at the beginning of the day and throughout the day than workers who didn't bring their dogs to work or have pets. In the study, owners who did not bring their dogs to work stress increased steadily, and nearly doubled by the end of the day.
However, not everyone is a dog lover, so having your best friend at the office can cause some issues.
