Being a new puppy parent can be ruff, as you try to juggle work while buying food, training the pooch, taking time for walks, and a lot of other doggie duties. And that’s why BrewDog—a Scottish brewery with a Columbus, Ohio, location scheduled to open later this year—now offers a full week of paid leave for staff members with new puppies or rescue dogs.
This “paw-ternity” benefit will be offered to all of its nearly 1,000 worldwide employees, and means those who adopt a dog will have the time off to bond with their pet, according to BrewDog’s Twitter.

“It’s not easy trying to juggle work and settle a new dog into your life, and many members of our crew have four-legged friends at home,” BrewDog Co-Founder James Watt told USA Today. “We wanted to take the stress out of the situation and let our teams take the time they need to welcome their new puppy or dog into their family.”
