  • Emotional labour in multispecies workplaces

    “Only certain types of dogs, and certain types of doggy behaviour, are deemed acceptable within the organization, and only within narrow confines of space, time and interaction. In this case, dogs are brought into the organization for a specific purpose, and aspects of ‘dogginess’ are valorized, such as apparent friendliness and accepting human touch, whilst other, equally ‘doggy’ behaviours (like barking, jumping, urinating) are unacceptable.”
