The Squires Group

When Nancy Squires announces “free range dogs” on the loudspeaker, the employees of The Squires Group, know to hide their sandwiches. Squires’ two Italian greyhounds and other employees’ dogs are a common fixture at the consulting and IT staffing firm’s Annapolis, Maryland, office, and they are known to sneak a sandwich or two. Despite these occasional pillages, Squires keeps the dogs in check, closing them in her office when they become disruptive. “You have to have respect for others at work. It can’t be camp run amok for dogs,” says Squires. “But they’re so much a part of our corporate climate, it would seem odd not to have them.”
