Going to the dogs

Liven up your next staff meeting by bringing your dog to the office. It's good for you, according to a British psychologist. Well, it depends on the dog:

[N]ot all canines are suitable for the dog-eat-dog world of business. Animals which have coat odour or flatulence would be inappropriate, as would those who are over-excitable or over-sexed.

I dunno, that sounds pretty typical of most staff meetings I've heard of. On a more common sense level, the good doctor has one more piece of advice:

"Itís not a good idea to go for small dogs who wear ribbons or which are yappy and excitable. Some people have strong prejudices about such animals."
