Wild Workspaces: Peek inside the dog-friendly BARK office

If you are a dog lover, you may want to consider applying for a job at BARK.

Founded in 2012 by Matt Meeker, Henrik Werdelin and Carly Strife, BARK's biggest goal is to make dogs feel like more than pets -- they should feel like part of your family. And the company's headquarters in New York City is a direct reflection of that mission. Located in the bustling Chinatown neighborhood, BARK's dog-friendly office is a sweet reminder that dogs will always be man's best friend.

The company, best known for BarkBox, a monthly themed subscription of all-natural treats and clever toys for dogs, not only has fun treats, toys and play areas dedicated to dog-owner bonding, but there are also small details that make it one of the best places to bring your pet to work. There are dog sinks to rinse your dog's paws off and little hooks around the office to keep your dog on its leash.

While the office is equipped with thoughtful additions to make sure your dog is comfortable in the office, there are also great perks for humans, too. The office is spacious and homey -- and even has rosé and cold brew on tap for those interested in grabbing a quick after-work drink.

With the surplus of open space for dogs to roam free in addition to the awesome perks for employees, BARK Co-founder Henrik Werdelin hopes that it's the perfect environment for staff to be extremely productive and creative.
