With more businesses being open to our four-legged friend hanging out in the office, a photographer captured the powerful role they play in the work environment.
For his series “Dogs at Work,” photographer Ty Foster traveled across the U.S. — from Colorado to Connecticut — to document dogs in different office settings.
“I kept hearing about more and more companies that allowed their employees to bring their dogs to work and I wanted to find out more,” he tells This Dog’s Life about how the project began.
While his photos are a beauty on their own, they also show the perks of having an office pup.
“It seemed as if people were just happier,” the Denver-based photographer says of the offices with dogs. “The workplaces were less stressful. Coincidentally, it seemed as if the workplace was more cohesive and more collaborative.”
Here are a few of our favorite shots. To see more, along with other work he has done with dogs, head over to Foster’s website.
