GET TO WORK

Anyone who has glimpsed the pleading brown eyes of their best pal as they head off to work in the morning knows the daily heartbreak of leaving a hound at home. However, Ty Foster’s photo series Dogs at Work shows that there’s a growing number of workplaces changing that rule. “All I can remember as a kid was that dogs live outside, or sleep in doghouses. Are doghouses even a thing anymore?” Foster asked. “Dogs have permeated our entire lives. A lot of dogs have more Instagram followers than you or I, it’s crazy!”

Noticing that many of his clients were allowed to bring their dog to the workplace, an idea sparked for Foster. He connected with companies ranging from breweries to yoga studios to boot manufacturers that all welcome pets at work. The difference between these and human-only workplaces was palpable. “They’re alive,” Foster said. “They have this additional source of energy. It’s like a house during the holidays. I think a younger generation is beginning to shift the rigid stereotypes of what the workplace is and how it should look. Grey cubicles aren’t the only sorts of offices that we have to work in.”
