Tech office dogs: It can get ruff
Think your tech company is cool? Does it have dogs? No? Then it is not cool. These offices are cool.
Here’s Ria, one of the two official office dogs of the high-tech pet service company Worthee.
Dogs of Etsy
The ecommerce site Etsy has many office dogs, including this unnamed pooch.
Here’s Reggie with his person, Royden Chick, who is a QA lead at the software company Autodesk.
Ellie, a labradoodle, operates out of Workable‘s Boston offices.
French bulldog at Etsy
This French bulldog goes to the Etsy offices with its owner, a merchandiser for the company.
Recruitment software company Workable also has offices in Athens, where this 8-month-old Greek shepherd dog, Kyma, runs things.
Jello the office parakeet
Not every office dog is a dog. Lord Jello Worthington II is one of several parakeets who supervise at the design company Pixelkeet.
This is how Westie (clearly not an actual westie) shows up for duty at Workable.

Oscar de Leon

Waiting in 606
“I walked into 606,” one Etsy employee recently posted on Instagram, “and this lil’ dingus on the right was staring at me, smiling.”
Dogs of Amazon
They don’t fly delivery drones, but Amazon‘s office dogs are nonetheless mission critical.
The king of Etsy?
It’s good to be king. It’s even better to be a Cavalier King Charles spaniel in the Etsy offices.
Office mates at Amazon
If you work at Amazon, good luck getting your meeting if these two are around.
Pearl and Gizmo
At the headquarters of the mobile marketplace Spring, Pearl and Gizmo support the staff … when they’re speaking to each other.
Tense meeting at Amazon
We’re not sure which dog prevailed after this meeting at Amazon, but we hope that human resources didn’t have to get involved.

In loving memoriam: Brooklyn
From the first day that mobile marketing and app development company Punchkick opened its doors, Brooklyn the beagle was there.
“Unfortunately,” Punchkick CEO Zak Dabbas tells TechRepublic, “there’s a painful downside to an office dog. And that is that the little buddies eventually move on, and it’s heartbreaking.
“This past fall, Brooklyn passed away after 14 incredible years. It was so hard on everyone in the office, but his life, and passing, really brought us together.”
