Call it “Mutt-ternity” or “Paw-ternity” Leave, but it’s a real thing at a craft brewery in the UK…and they’re bringing the policy to the USA.
BrewDog is offering staff members a week of leave whenever they get a new puppy or a rescue dog.
Said company co-founder James Watt:
“It’s not easy trying to juggle work and settle a new dog into your life…so we wanted to take the stress out of the situation…we also just really, really like dogs.”
This spring, BrewDog is opening a brewery in Columbus, Ohio – where the “Puppy Parental Leave” program will apply.
Oh – and the company offers employees what it calls “a liberal free beer policy.”
