What does it mean?
A couple weeks ago I had the unique opportunity to work with one of our service dogs while one of our puppy raisers was out of town. Archer got to go to work with me and I got to go to work with Archer.
He had a positive impact on my day and gave the same positive spin to some of my officemates.
Here is what they had to say about having Archer around the office.
Archer is a great companion because he is mellow but affectionate. He relieves stress because of his demeanor and good behavior. I think it is clear that Archer is happiest with a single owner who can spend lots of time with the dog. - Adam Faircloth
Having Archer in the office was a huge treat for me. I grew up with dogs, but I don't have the time/money/space to have one of my own now, so it was really nice to be able to take Archer and hang out with him while I worked, and to see him walking around the office with his other new friends. I also think having him here was great for morale because he brought a smile to everyone's face. He brought my stress level down a notch or two, for sure! - Megan Lowe
It was a very calming effect. Anytime I hung out with him he calmed me down, got me in relaxation mode which helps the ideas flow and made it easier to work. It also upped the fun and happiness levels. - Brian Hanson
Animals do have an impact on our world in so many positive ways.
