Certification is not only available for human team members, it’s also available for individuals dogs. Dog owners answer questions with an easy at-home online questionnaire about how their dogs interact with people, places, and other dogs, which forms a detailed functional assessment. The test identifies problem areas for interaction in a dog friendly world and workplace.

Based on the answers given and the score computed, you as the business owner or Dogs In The Workplace program manger, can decide on an individual basis whether or not a dog will be allowed to come to work with its owner. It’s not personal, it’s scientific, which eliminates hurt feelings when one dog is given permission to participate and another is not. For certain problems or sensitivities identified in the testing process, our system gives dog owners online training exercises to help address these issues.

Testing for certification and participation is completed annually by the dog owner to track any health or behavioral changes in their dog. Information is easily shared with the HR department or Dogs In The Workplace program manger, in addition to the dog’s caregivers and veterinarian through the system’s portal. It allows those who will interact with that dog know what this individual likes and doesn’t like, to make the workplace more relaxed and safer for everyone.
