Welcoming a new dog into your life can be an incredibly stressful time, especially if you have a full time-job.

Both bonding and training your pup are essential, but a nine to five can make that impossible.

For BrewDog employees, however, their lives have just become a whole lot easier.

The UK-based microbrewery has introduced Puppy Parental Leave, allowing their staff to take paid days rather than cut short their holiday leave to look after their new family members.

Speaking to Metro, co-founder James Watt, said:

It's not easy trying to juggle work and settle a new dog into your life, and many members of our crew have four-legged friends at home.
So we wanted to take the stress out of the situation and let our teams take the time they need to welcome their new puppy or dog into their family.
We always want to raise the bar when it comes to offering our staff the best possible benefits; at BrewDog we care about two things above all else. People and beer.
We also just really, really like dogs.

And once that leave period has come to an end, staff are allowed to take their pooches in to BrewDog's Aberdeenshire HQ, which already has a whopping 50 office dogs.

Chances are, this isn't a feature at your place of work but it absolutely should be. Let's get this rolled out nationwide!
