Less Stress When Your Dog Is At Your Desk:

In other news, Gather Arts District is the first be dog friendly. What is better than bringing your four-legged friend with you as you head to work everyday? We’re not sure either. 


Gather Arts District is the only dog friendly location. Members with offices are welcome to learn about options regarding pets in their office. 



A study by the Virginia Commonwealth University found that when people had their pets around during the workday, they had much lower stress levels than those who had to leave their furry friends at home. 


Members Agree - 


  • Nicole Duimstra, Gather Downtown: “As a young professional, my dog is the one constant in my life. She has been by my side through the good and bad as I've transitioned into adulthood - apartment changes, job changes, relationship changes, you name it!”
  •  Preston Edwards, Gather Short Pump: “We recently lost one of our dogs, Ruby, to cancer two weeks ago and our other dog, Kita is home alone, something she has never had to deal with before. It would mean the world to have her not at home alone and with me at work, around people and not missing her sister.”
  • Kim Newcomb, Gather Short Pump: This new policy improves Gather members’ day to day experience in a number of ways. It’ll make it easier to stay a full day at the office. It’ll also helps me maintain a healthier lifestyle, forcing me to get up, go outside, and walk around instead of sitting at my desk for hours at a time.”
