It’s a dog-eat-dog world in the advertising industry – and it helps to have a best friend nearby. On any given day at LoSasso, you can find one of our many four-legged friends joining a brainstorming meeting or chasing birds in our back yard. Google ‘dog friendly workplaces’ and you’ll find endless research on the benefits of furry friends in the office. In fact, some of the most successful companies in the world welcome pets on their premises (Google, Amazon and Ben & Jerry’s, to name a few).
Meet the LoDogs that make us a happy bunch, day in and day out:
