Companies may be located in buildings that ban dogs; it can be illegal for a food store, restaurant, hair salon (in some states) or medical office; and insurance may be a barrier, he said.
For others, allowing pets may be a way to help make do with fewer employees working longer hours. "By allowing dogs at work, an employee doesn't have to leave to take care of the pet," Kain said.
At Authentic Entertainment, Dolly's biggest hurdle was deliverymen. "She has always had a fear of carts and boxes and people in uniform," McCormack said.
She introduced Dolly to Authentic's maintenance man, and because Dolly still barked and growled at outside deliverymen, McCormack asked for a heads-up call from the front desk when they arrived.
Now she puts Dolly in her lap until the deliveries are finished. Problem solved.
Dolly's favorite part of coming to work is the attention, McCormack said. At home, she plays second-fiddle to a 3-year-old. At work, Dolly is Miss November in a calendar featuring employee dogs as characters on their shows.
"She is the toast of the town," McCormack said. "Everybody knows her and she is the star."
