Professional pooch enjoys caring client visit

When Jeanette McEwan, owner of Home Instead Senior Care in South Lincolnshire found out that Take Your Dog to work day was fast approaching, she jumped at the chance to introduce 85 year client Betty Snell to her 6 month old Shih Tzu Archie.
 
Archie has been an office dog for the at-home care company for several months and Jeanette says that many of her clients have already heard a lot about their new addition to the team.
 
Jeanette commented: “Archie is so adorable and we all love having him in the office, so Take Your Dog to work day was a great opportunity to introduce him to our clients. He is such a friendly dog; we knew he would enjoy meeting our clients just as much as they would enjoy meeting him.”
 
Betty Snell has been a client with Home Instead for several years and welcomes visits from caregiver Lynn Best (pictured) on a regular basis. As a dog lover herself, Betty was thrilled with the idea of receiving a visit from Archie and was really excited to meet the professional pooch she had heard so much about.
 
Jeanette continued: “Betty had a wonderful time meeting Archie and the two of them got on like a house on fire. From now on I think Archie will be keen to get away from his desk work and carry out more home visits with our caregivers – especially if it means playing with Betty again!”
