It’s a fact: Pets are good for people. Be it dogs, cats or bearded dragons, pets are proven to lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol, boost happiness and bring a host of other well-documented benefits.

Many forward-thinking companies have taken note of these telling statistics, and implemented pet-friendly policies in their offices. Austin, as the United States city with the third-highest rate of pet ownership, is no exception to this trend.

We’ve rounded up some of the coolest Austin tech companies that are made even cooler by their pet-friendly policies.

 

Modernize

Founded: 2005

What they do: Modernize connects people looking to create more energy-efficient homes to a robust network of contractors specializing in solar panel installation, HVAC upgrades and more.

The pet perks: The Modernize office is loaded with amenities from kegs to showers to tasty snacks and more. However, we think the best perk has to be company’s pet-friendly policy. The company keeps tabs on furry visitors with a shared calendar that helps limit the number of dogs in the office at a time.

 

Sumo

What they do: Sumo helps entrepreneurs build their online presences with e-commerce tools to maximize audience growth, reduce issues like cart abandonment and drive return visits. Oh — and did we mention it’s free?

The pet perks: Rounding out Sumo’s impressive benefits package is a dog-friendly office space. They even have a resident office dog, or canine celebrity, named Bambam.

 

Square Root
