Last Call: Great news! PR is going to the dogs

PR21's CEO, Gus Weill, can be excused for walking around his New York office these days singing Who Let the Dogs Out?

Weill discovered a doggone mess when he joined the firm's New York office late last year, as he came in on his first day and tripped over a boxer.

Weill, who owns a bulldog and a chihuahua himself, was thrilled at how pet-friendly the office was, and plans to bring his pets in sometime.

Not a day goes by without one or two canine faces adding to the office of 42 human ones - which is a good thing, he said: 'Having dogs around tends to have a very calming influence on people.'

The dogs do well out of it as well, often getting to snack on leftovers from client meetings - though Weill swore that clients weren't being billed for extra doggy treats.

The only requirement for those wanting to bring their dogs is that the pets have to be house-trained first. 'To my knowledge, we've had no accidents to date,' said a relieved Weill, checking his shoe.
