Years ago, one agent used to come in occasionally with 2 of his show dogs, but he lived within walking distance of the office, so he typically wasn't in the office terribly long.  I wish more dogs were in the office!

I have no idea... I don't walk into my brokerage office much more than twice a month on average and then I'm in and out in about 5 minutes. 95% of our agents work from home offices... so I don't believe this is an issue.

I used to have "OC" (Office Cat) who got to roam the bull pen, but not allowed in the conference room.  The best ice breaker there was...never a single complaint.

I let agents bring their dog in and out if they were picking up something, but pets were not allowed to stay. 

I did have a client come to closing with her 3 trained dogs.  I have also babysat occcasional pets for clients including a snake.  Its either that or they have to leave the pet in the car...not an option in Florida.

Yes & no. I would depend on the behavior of the pet. Dogs are ok until they start barking. There are also too many people that are just afraid of them.

Our board has satellite meetings on important legal issues & the last time I was at one there was an agent with her 'pocket purse pooch' which had been there for an hour before I noticed it. I thought that was a little tacky.

Many of them do here, not sure about my own. I have always wondered how it is decided though since so many are allergic to pet hair? Lucky for me, my allergies are controlled, as I do love to have doggies about.

My town is very dog friendly, but outside an occassional need due to an upcoming vet or grooming visit, pets are not welcome. There are people with pet phobias and allergies and their wishes need to be recognized.  Plus, this is a professional office.
