HR Strange But True!
July 01, 2010
Take your dog to work? No make it work! Why should your dog just lie around the house when it could be gainfully employed?

Kate Hogan of has compiled a list of stories about canine employees. And she found that there are lots more occupations for dogs than just acting, like Lassie, or being a police dog.

Bailey, the beagle, works for a pest control company in California. His job is to check hotel rooms, dormitories, hospitals, and retirement homes for—bed bugs! Bailey is adept at sniffing them out in the mattresses and, of course, trying to chase them away.

Lady, a black lab, is employed as a "goose chaser" at a resort in New York. She chases geese and sometimes deer from the property so guests can stroll the grounds without constantly looking down.

Stella, the Chihuahua, is an assistant at her owner's bridal boutique. Her job is to sit on the trains of the wedding gowns so the client can see the full effect of the design.

Hector, a former fighting dog owned by Michael Vick, has a new career as a trainer. He travels to schools around the Northeast demonstrating pet care techniques to kids.

And Jasper the Yorkie is a greeter for a bar/restaurant in New York City. Since he started his job, he has attracted so many customers that the establishment is no longer in danger of going out of business.
