Does Google Mountain View office allow dogs on a regular basis?

If yes, generally speaking are your coworkers okay with it?

And is there a dog care offered by Google?

    Yes, it’s pretty easy. I think a lot of people love dogs at work.

    It’s unfortunate for the allergic minority to have their health impacted though. I know people who felt uncomfortable since it caused allergies though they pretend to like dogs lol There’s also those who can die from an asthma attack triggered by dog allergens who usually avoid dog friendly buildings. It’s sad that people only can go into certain building without harming their health due to a pet...not a work related reason.

    ...also pretty crazy how a dog can just take a massive shit at a work place. I am shocked every time I see it

      Not sure if I need a link (let me know if so). Asthma attacks can be triggered by pet allergens as stated in the original comment. Asthma attacks can kill and/or cause permanent lung damage

    • If you actually perform that google search and click the links you will not see Pet Allergies as the cause for Anaphylaxis. In fact there is no medical evidence listed that shows pet allergies cause anaphylaxis.

      The asthma attack thing feels 50/50. If you’re at risk of having an asthma attack because of allergies would you not be routinely taking medication for both your asthma and allergies as preventive measure? One site said 2 out of 3 asthma attacks could be prevented with better routine care.

      Maybe talk to a specialist doctor to get accurate information? I told you the legitimate answer that involves my own experience of going to the ER and nearly dying. Up to you to believe another person’s health...maybe the routine is to not be exposed to an asthma trigger. Normally people are not forced to be exposed to allergens if they have allergic asthma...

      It’s a pretty asshole move to hurt a coworker when workplaces should be a healthy place for everyone

      @Yesterday, it literally says reactions [as severe as anaphylaxis] are not unheard of. It also lists cases of life-threatening events.

      I don't know why you're attempting to be so combative. You literally asked for examples, and more than one person has provided them. Stop trying to willfully ignore, please.

      So? Now you just seem borderline obsessive.

      anaphylaxis has a much shorter time periods for people to save their own life. Asthma deaths often happen at the hospital since it’s slowly letting a person suffocate to death. Overall, arguing over this is not helpful as much as recognizing that this is a big health issue that can lead to very negative health consequences.

    • I’m actually being treated for manic depression, social anxiety with ocd tendencies so I guess you could say I do get a bit obsessive.

      Agree with @relprime. That struggle is real, too.
