If your dogs go to work with you, what type of job do you have?

I'd love to be able to bring my dog to work/school, and I'm currently seeing if my side business picks up enough momentum to become a full time thingo, so that I can set my own pets-at-work policy!!

Buuuut I was just curious as to what kinds of jobs some others may have if you are lucky enough to be able to bring your best buddy to work.

Not asking for specific info/company names if you don't want to, just something general like' truck driver' or 'florist' etc. Pictures encouraged!!

I'm a dog groomer, so all my dogs have grown up at the grooming shop. Made it very easy to housebreak them, not to mention getting used to other dogs, people, and lots of activity!

I work at a garbage company. I bring them in to visit on my days off or go grab one if I'm closing.

I telecommute - so I normally put the dogs up when I have a conference call and they are out back a lot but I rotate them in my office as well during the day and spend time with them.

I was a truck dispatcher, and on my night shift I worked alone. I took them in for company and to alert me when drivers came in.

Lots of opportunities exist in Architecture/Construction/Design-Build/Landscape/remodeling fields. My dogs particularly enjoy flagging trees and site visits.

I own and operate a drywall and paint business. I wish I could take my dog to work with me. I either working on a residential remodel, or doing a big industrial or new house where I am too busy to be able to watch him closely enough.

I manage a warehouse for a trucking company. I've had dogs with me everyday since 2000, and even sometimes when I was still driving I'd take one with me in the truck. It may be different in Australia Chai, but here you have to be really, really careful. If someone even trips over your dog, it opens up a huge fight between insurance companies, work mans comp, etc,, and it can get ugly.

This is my dog the first time I let him destroy some air bags:

I'm a technical sales manager for a software company. My dogs are welcome in my office with me, when I'm not traveling or working from home.
