If you love dogs, you may want to apply at Amazon. Perhaps Trupanion might be a good place for you – or one of the 11 other Washington state companies on a list of the top 100 dog-friendly workplaces across the country.
Seattle-based Rover.com, which connects pet owners with pet sitters and dog walkers, polled companies across the United States based on “dog-friendly criteria,” including the number of dogs allowed in the office and dog perks and amenities.
“Dog-friendly companies are trending from coast to coast, with companies of all sizes prioritizing dog-friendly perks and benefits that can result in lower employee stress and even encourage collaboration across teams,” Rover says in a statement announcing the rankings. “And with its plentiful dog parks, off-leash trails, and dog-friendly bars and eateries, it’s no surprise Seattle businesses are prioritizing dog-friendly offices.”
Amazon ranked No. 1 in the country. Seattle-based Trupanion, which offers medical insurance for pets, ranked No. 3. Seattle internet testing and data company Ookla and RealSelf, a Seattle company that offers a service where consumers research treatments and connect with physicians, also finished in the top 20. The complete list is here.
And if you’re a dog lover already gainfully employed but still searching for that special someone, you’re in luck. Louisiana-based Dig Inc., which created “Dig-The Dog Person’s Dating App,” is holding a launch party in Seattle at WeWork Lincoln Square on July 11 to help dog lovers find love with like-minded people. Details on that event are here.
