Harper is an apricot Cockapoo who was born in 2016.
She enjoys coming into the office meeting and greeting new and old friends. She can be found sprawled out in the middle of the floor waiting for a belly rub and a fuss.
Whether or not you own the dog, petting one has been proven to reduce stress. The process of patting and stroking a dog reduces the blood pressure, changes your physiological state into a more relaxed mode, and makes you feel better. So dogs in the office could help lessen the overall stress of the workplace environment.
Harper also thinks it is important that her colleagues take regular breaks from their computer screens and is more than happy to go for a quick walk or give cuddles.
When not in the office Harper’s favourite pastime is walking in the Vale of Belvoir and particularly loves her regular trips to the Lake District with family and friends.
