I’m so happy to see that the editors of Fine Homebuilding are fun, lively and enlightened enough to not only admit that workers bring their dogs to the jobsite, but to have a whole photo gallery of these furry workplace companions.
I suggested such a feature to some other editors in the past and they reacted like I was some kind of miscreant for even suggesting that dogs belong on a jobsite.
And yes, I know, I know, dogs on a jobsite are a dangerous element in an already dangerous setting. But think of the therapeutic value! Dogs make us happy and calm. At least that’s how I feel when I’m around them. Perhaps there’s a study showing the benefits of dogs on a jobsite?
Here is a worker taking a lunchtime rest with his furry partner. How awesome is this?
