Rodney Alvarez, a human resources executive at Celtra, a video advertising company, says legal issues to consider include making sure the company's insurance covers any incidents like biting, and keeping animals well-behaved so they won't frighten visitors. Some owners say when they interview job candidates, they let them know there are pets around.Staffers at Celtra's San Francisco office asked to bring in their pooches. One Boston employee said no, and so there are no dogs in that office.At Sterling Communications, seven of the 20 staffers want to bring their dogs into the Los Gatos, California-based office. CEO Marianne O'Connor, who has a German shepherd named Kaya, worked out a schedule that allows two dogs each day. Most often, a business becomes pet-friendly when it's the owner who brings an animal in. Anne Buchanan adopted a dog about 12 years ago who turned out to be emotionally needy and much happier when Buchanan was around. When Buchanan's dog and a staffer's couldn't get along, the boss paid for a trainer to work with both pups and their owners.Many people without pets are happy to have co-workers' animals nearby.
