A Look Inside Dog-Friendly Coworking Spaces in DFW

Check out our blog that explores the benefits of a dog-friendly coworking space. From increased productivity to a happier pup, we explore why coworking with dogs is the way to go.

Having trouble leaving your furry friend behind for a long work day?

Step into the world of modern workplaces, where a new fun trend is on the rise—dog-friendly coworking spaces! Unlike more traditional offices, these new workspaces are not just changing the status quo with flexibility and productivity but are quickly becoming a space that comfortably and safely includes our furry friends.

At CityCentral Plano and CityCentral Addison, we want our clients to feel as at-home and relaxed in our space as possible. That's why we decided to become a dog-friendly center, where fun, friendship, and good vibes support high productivity.

Let's take a look at why joining a  dog-friendly coworking space is perfect for getting work done and feeling good about your daily routine.

Say Goodbye to Hard Goodbyes

Say goodbye to those heartbreaking goodbyes each morning with a dog-friendly coworking space. No more sad eyes watching you leave as you grab your keys and head out the door, leaving your beloved pet behind.

Bringing your dog to work means they can join in your daily adventures, making both your workday and theirs much more enjoyable and your relationship more fulfilling.

Combat Separation Anxiety

Dogs, like humans, can experience intense separation anxiety. Having your furry friend by your side at the office eliminates this stress and promotes a sense of security for your pet.

Imagine a workplace where everyone feels less stressed because they get the chance to bring their happy and emotionally supportive pets around. This change in the atmosphere can make people more focused, creative, and willing to work together. When a pet and their owner are both content, it sets off a positive chain reaction, making the work environment more friendly, cooperative, and suitable for everyone.

Boost Morale and Motivation

Having dogs around at work has been shown to have a positive impact on how employees feel about their tasks and navigate their workspace. When people get to pet and interact with dogs, it does in fact do more than just make them happy—it has been proven to lower stress levels and put people in a better mood for longer. This happens because of a special hormone called oxytocin, known as the "feel-good" hormone.

A dog-friendly coworking space doesn't just create a friendly environment; it also helps everyone feel less on edge and in better spirits. This good mood isn't just a passing feeling; it sticks around and contributes to a workplace where people work better together and are more likely to enjoy otherwise mundane tasks.

Build Social Connections

Dogs are natural icebreakers and conversation starters.

In a dog-friendly coworking space, colleagues are more likely to strike up conversations, share stories about their pets, and form stronger connections. This social bonding can lead to improved teamwork, communication, and a more cohesive work community.

At CityCentral, many of our clients look forward to seeing fellow member's pups in the courtyard, in the lobby, or maybe to saying a quick hello in the elevator. Throughout the day, community members often stop each other to pet their furry friends and talk about life updates. Many times, clients end up talking about their side businesses, which may involve dog-sitting, walking, grooming, or training. In these cases, members exchange information to give each other business and help out with personal needs.

The shared experience of taking care of these adorable companions helps build stronger bonds among colleagues and coworking members. This improved social connection sets the stage for better teamwork and collaboration, which are both important for building community and reaching goals together.

Stay Active at the Office

Dogs need regular walks and playtime, which means employees are obligated to take breaks and make time for physical activity. This not only benefits the health and well-being of the dogs but also encourages a healthier lifestyle for professionals. Taking short breaks outside and getting the chance to move around can enhance productivity, improve mental well-being, and minimize feelings of burnout.

At our CityCentral location, we provide open and well-maintained courtyards perfect for taking a break with your furry friend and getting those steps in. It is especially enjoyable on bright, sunny days where you can rest a bit on the benches or let your dog expel energy as needed.

Enjoy a Safe and Inclusive Environment

If you have any reservations at all about joining a pet-friendly coworking space, we are here to help clear the air.

In order to maintain a safe and welcoming environment for everyone, having a dog friendly space means establishing guidelines and rules to ensure the safety and comfort of all members. This may include designated pet-friendly areas, clear expectations for pet behavior, guidelines on clean-up and organization, and in some instances vaccination requirements.

A well-organized system creates a safer and more inclusive workspace, accommodating both dog lovers and those who may have reservations about pets in the office.

Bring Your Furry Friends to Work!

In the world of modern workspaces, dog-friendly coworking spaces are not just a passing trend; they represent a shift towards a more engaging and enjoyable workplace.

The benefits extend beyond the joy of having our furry friends by our side—they enhance well-being, build social connections, and contribute to a more vibrant work environment.
