Whether it’s the protective corgi or the optimistic Labradors, this Grand Canyon rafting reservations office maintains its bark friendly environment. Employees are encouraged to bring in pups of all sizes to the office during the work day. In fact, much of the new office construction was designed especially to make it dog friendly. The UPS man, Victor, is well acquainted with the gang and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Studies have shown that employees are more productive when having their furry friends with them in the office. It could be because there is no worry about how the dogs are doing at home or it could be the "lick breaks" that these canines offer. Though we probably shouldn’t admit it to the big boss, we honestly probably spend about 30 minutes per day petting, playing fetch with or rolling on the floor wrestling with these big (and little) guys. That creates a positive work environment even if we look a little goofy in the process.
And don’t just think that dogs can only be found at the office in Flagstaff. For many years, the Dalmatian was the official Hatch mascot, even going down to the river on launch days. Hatchland in Marble Canyon also has many a friendly pooch roaming the grounds. Whether it’s the casual atmosphere a boatman creates or the family like vibe, a pettable companion is usually available.
Just for the record, on a regular day in the office we have 5 dogs. Sometimes the brother Labradors make their entry along with their buddy the protective Dalmatian. The Hopi rescue dog comes in almost every single day and fills our days with kisses and tail wags. On occasion the German shorthaired pointer comes in to the Grand Canyon rafting reservations office with his puppy attitude. We are still working on that one. The one who thinks she is in control is the little Corgi. Even the Labradors back off that tough cookie. Office politics, I swear.
