Office dogs – interview with our four-legged Anexians

Written on November 13, 2017 by Lucia Schöpfer

A good office climate is created not only by having plants in the office; other living creatures, such as dogs, also ensure a good atmosphere. At Anexia, every day is a bring-your-dog-to-work-day because here you don’t need to hide your pet in a backpack or handbag. You can take your dog to work here. According to studies, animals reduce stress and improve health. When you come to the office in the morning, look into big doggy eyes, and are greeted profusely, you will be able to start your day much more motivated.

Gismo, Akira, Otto, Henry, and Twighly, are the dogs of our Anexians. They are lively and bring a breath of fresh air into their department. Whether they make the employees dance, chase after lights and shadows, or look for lost dogs in their spare time, we cannot imagine the office without them and therefore are presenting them to you in this blog post.




This is my owner Alexandra Bruckner
This is her job at Anexia Software Development
How I help her I cuddle and snore comfortably at the office. I ensure she gets some exercise with walks outdoors in the fresh air in the morning, lunch time, and afternoon.
How old am I 8 years
My breed Maltese
How to recognize me Distinctive, high-frequency squeaky barking
My friends at the office I let myself be stroked by carefully selected employees – all others jump when I ask them to.
I like to chew on this toy especially Sticks. Other than that, I only chew on edible things, otherwise the effort is simply not worth it. Even bones, etc., are only interesting as long as there is still meat on them.
My hobbies Barking at people (as already mentioned they jump beautifully when I do), chasing after stones and balls (bringing them back is stupid, but I always like to run after them!)




This is my owner Monika
This is her job at Anexia Software Project Management
How I help her By spreading a cheerful mood in hard times and making sure that my owner gets some fresh air every once in a while.
My owner calls me Otto and sometimes Ottokar (if I supposedly misbehave)
How old am I 10 years
My breed Dalmatian
How to recognize me My spots of course and no, we Dalmatians do not all look the same!
My friends in the office Friends? If you have food, you are my friend!
I like to chew on this toy especially My super-hard chewing root. One day I will get it down!
My hobbies Eat, sleep, eat, eat, and ok … I do have to do some exercise too.
