Do Business Leaders And Their Dogs Have Similar Personalities?

Business-Dogs-Header Dogs are known to have a calming effect. According to Harvard Medical School, dog owners have lower blood pressure and are better at handling stress. In an office environment where employees are constantly under pressure, dogs can really help lighten the mood. Studies have shown that having dogs around can lead to more trust between coworkers and increased collaboration. They also encourage employees to take a much needed break to go out for a walk or play with fido, and come back more focused and relaxed. Many large and successful companies like Google and Amazon allow pooches in office. Google even offers pet health insurance. Other dog-friendly companies include Zynga, Etsy, Salesforce, Ben & Jerry’s, Clif Bar, and coworking spaces like WeWork. Though a dog-friendly office may not be for everyone, it’s no surprise that many successful business leaders have embraced the power of pets (and some have even opened their offices to furry friends). Many business leader’s dogs even have the characteristics of stellar business people -- smart, confident, loyal. To find out just how much business leader’s dogs reflected their personalities (and vice versa) we compared the characteristics of the leaders and their pooches. See how they stack up below.
