Company Offers Puppy ‘Pawternity’ Leave For Employees Who Get A New Dog

We’ve heard of maternity leave and paternity leave, but one brewery has made “paw-ternity” leave a thing. The brewery, which is nearly 1,000 employees strong, revolutionized work back in 2017 when it made the announcement that it would provide a week of paid leave to any member of staff who adopts a new dog.

BrewDog posted the announcement to their blog, saying, “[W]e know only too well that having a new arrival – whether a mewling pup or unsettled rescue dog – can be stressful for human and hound both. So we are becoming the first in our industry to give our staff a working week’s leave on us to help settle a new furry family member into their home.”

The brewery is based in Scotland but opened up a new location close to Columbus, Ohio in the United States on February 20, 2017. It was the first company in the US, as well as the first brewery in the UK, to offer a “paw-ternity” benefit to its employees.

As the post wrote, “This brand new pooch-based perk will be available to all BrewDog crewmembers across the globe, including those joining our ship Stateside as part of BrewDog Columbus. We’re not aware of any other American company giving a week’s leave to their staff to help build the bond between them and their dog – but then few other companies have four-legged friends at their center as we do.”

Now if only more companies would follow in their footsteps and provide their employees with “paw-ternity” leave.
