Home Office Work: These Dog Breeds Are Best For You

Home office and dog – they go well together, don’t they? In fact, some dog breeds are better suited for this than others. Because they are especially calm and do not distract their owners from their work.

During the Corona pandemic, more people work from home than usual. And even if a return to work is likely to be possible again soon: the home office should remain a part of daily work in many areas. A plus for all dog owners or those looking to become one. Because you no longer need to leave your four-legged friends alone for hours.

But not every dog is equally well suited for spending a lot of time in the home office with their owners.

Best Dog Breeds for the Home Office

A British site has studied what breeds of dogs can make good fellows on four legs. To do this, she carefully studied the typical characteristics and needs of 30 popular dog breeds.

Of particular importance were the characteristics that make four-legged friends pleasant partners in the home office, including whether they can live well in an apartment, how well they can be alone, their ability to educate, their tendency to bark, energy levels, and the need for exercise.

Shih Tzu is especially good in these areas: four-legged friends can adapt to apartment life and have fairly low energy levels. Therefore, they are unlikely to distract their family from their daily work.

The Doberman Pinscher is also a good home office companion. It may be alone and is considered a breed that barks little – and therefore does not interfere with video calls or conference calls. The Havanese is in third place.

  5. Bulldog
  6. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
  7. Cocker Spaniel
  8. Boston Terrier
  9. Poodle
  10. Miniature Schnauzer

On the other hand, dog breeds that require a lot of activity and that prefer to be in company, bark more often, and are better kept in a house with a garden than in a small apartment are considered less suitable. These are estimated to include the Siberian Husky, Brittany Spaniel, Vizla, Great Dane, and Beagle.

Why Dogs are Perfect Colleagues

Sharing a home office with your dog can have many benefits. After all, four-legged friends are considered true stress killers.

However, the situation in the isolation ward and home office can also be a problem for our furry friends: they feel it when their people are under stress or fear, and they may themselves exhibit behavioral problems or other symptoms of stress. Therefore, of course, you should not neglect the needs of your pet and make sure that he feels as comfortable with you in the home office as you do.

If you have a dog now, you should also think about what your own work situation will look like in a few months.

Many may have to return to the office – and suddenly you no longer have time to take care of your four-legged friends. The decision to give preference to a dog is a lifelong decision and should therefore always be carefully considered.
