We asked Alice from British country clothing brand, Alice & Country to introduce us to her canine helper. Find out more about her...
How many dogs do you share your working life with, and tell us about them?
I share my working life with one gorgeous dog; Lola, who is a one year old cocker-jack. I got her when she was just 8 weeks old, and since then we've been lucky enough to spend every day together in the office! She can be a nuisance, what with being such a high energy breed, but this can usually be solved by taking her to the back fields and throwing a stick to wear her out! This is great for giving me a break from work too!
She loves to be the centre of attention, and will bring any guest who walks in her puppy blankie as a greeting gift, as well as a selection of her favourite toys!
What would her job title be?
Lola would be the office 'social secretary' (even though that's not an official title!) She would be the person bringing cups of tea and coffee and boosting the morale in the workplace!
What's her role?
Lola provides cuddles and warmth when it's cold outside, as her favourite place to lie is either on my lap or on my feet! She also is responsible for reminding me to take a break by bringing me her ball and leading me outside for a breath of fresh air!
Which of your clients does your dog like the most?
Lola adores absolutely everyone who comes in, and is incredibly affectionate; I don't think she could possibly choose!
If she gave you one piece of advice what would that be?
To relax, and take a break when things get stressful by making the most of the beautiful countryside around me. Sometimes the simple things have the capabilities of bringing the most joy!
