One Call Now

One Call Now’s dog-friendly work environment started when CEO Lieb Lurie’s German shepherd Ivy showed up uninvited for work five years ago. When this developed into a pattern, Lurie started bringing Ivy to work everyday, and encouraging his staff to do the same. Now, several dogs, as well as fish, birds, turtles and other caged animals keep their owners company throughout their workday. Troy, Ohio-based One Call Now worked with their third-party human resources service to develop a pet policy within their handbook, but keep things pretty straightforward. “There’s nothing that’s not common sense,” Lurie says of the policy. “So if you have common sense, your pet is welcome.”
