Q:  Some of my employees have requested that we allow them to bring their dogs to work, citing Google and Ben & Jerry’s as examples of companies with a pet-friendly policy.  Although I’m a dog lover myself and I like the idea, I’ve resisted because I worry about the liability.  What else should I consider?
