Luck of the dog: 8 years later Brewdog have carved a niche of their own.

“It’s not easy trying to juggle work and settle a new dog into your life, and many members of our crew have four-legged friends at home so we wanted to take the stress out of the situation and let our teams take the time they need to welcome their new puppy or dog into their family. So we are becoming the first in our industry to give our staff a working week’s leave on us to help settle a new furry family member into their home.

We always want to raise the bar when it comes to offering our staff the best possible benefits… We also just really, really like dogs.”

dog helps human suffering chronic illnesses

Guide dogs and therapy dogs are so much more than empathizing friends. They are the super heroes who help heal the world in their own special ways.

Jaquie, a young Florida woman, has battled for over eight years the multiple chronic illnesses − asthma, allergies, chronic migraines, anaphylaxis, narcolepsy, epilepsy and others.

But given the iron willed lady Jaquie is, she doesn’t let her illnesses restrain her from living a happy life. Sure, there are times when the going gets too tough – the occasional anaphylactic episodes which can trigger anywhere. Thankfully she can always count on Harlow, her service pup in training.
