How Taking Your Dog to Work Can Be as Relaxing as Cannabis

This article is presented by Smoke Cartel, an online retailer and head shop made up of a close-knit team of glass lovers dedicated to making sure you get the best possible smoking gear.


Plenty of folks use cannabis at the end of a long day at work to manage their stress levels, unwind, and get a good night’s sleep. But since you can’t take cannabis with you to a shift, how are you supposed to keep that stress at bay during the work day?

Well, here at Smoke Cartel headquarters in Savannah, GA, we keep things light with the help of our employee’s canine pals. Dogs are always welcome in the Smoke Cartel offices, and not just because studies suggest it helps to combat stress among employees.

At Smoke Cartel, we even put these pooches to work sometimes—for instance, modeling our new HeadyPet line of cannabis-themed canine couture, including leashes, harnesses, toys, and more. (Don’t worry, in accordance with canine labor laws, all models were adequately compensated with treats and cuddles.)

Here, our models highlight why it’s a good idea to make your office dog-friendly, as well some of our favorite ways to get your pet dressed up for the workday, no matter what business you’re in.

You can plan dapper outfits together, including matching ties for when you’re feeling formal. Lucy here is sporting a HeadyPet bow tie in signature Money print, and won’t say a word about your clip-on.

When Nola here goes to work with her owner, there’s no sad faces in the morning and no tipped over garbage cans waiting at the end of the day. Good thing, too, as it would be a shame to stain her harness, leash, and collar from the Shatter line.

Dogs like Duchess here make for great company on your morning commute, and they’ll never ask you to change the radio station. You can keep your friend safe in the car with HeadyPet harnesses and seatbelt tethers, seen here in Leafy Chevron.

Having a pal like Mega in the office makes coffee breaks way more fun, and his Shatter-themed harness is a great reminder of the kind of human treats you’ve got waiting at home once you clock out!

How often do you totally forget to leave the office in the course of a day? Even if you’re getting delivery for lunch, having a co-worker like Titan (modeling a harness in Leafy Argyle print) will make sure you get outside for a stroll in the fresh air every day!

Even when you’re in the cannabis industry, it can be easy to take work too seriously sometimes. A pal like Piglet can help remind you when it’s time to add some play to your day and give the HeadyPet Twax Dog Toy a tug.

The best part of bringing your dog to work? You don’t have to wait until 5 o’clock to see a face like Zoey, who’s ready to join you for happy hour, a toke on the porch, or whatever else you’ve got planned after work in her Wig Wag harness.
