K9-5: New York Dogs at Work is a collection of photographs that celebrate the culture in New York of bringing your dog to work. Studies have shown that having dogs in the office lowers stress and can even increase productivity. New Yorkers are known for having the longest work weeks resulting in many bringing their pooches with them to work. Featuring the offices of lawyers, hair salons, interior designers, furniture and textile showrooms, architects, jewelry boutiques, art galleries and many more with all types of dogs from Dachshunds, Shih Tzus, a Great Dane, Labradoodles, Corgis, French and English Bulldogs, mixed breeds, rescues, and others. With photography by Michelle Rose and a preface by famed dog trainer and author Bashkim Dibra, the book intimately shows these adorable ‘workers’ and the beautiful spaces they inhabit from nine to five.
