Sure, training a new puppy is a lot of work. I get that. So if you're a serious dog (and beer) lover, you might want to take a look at BrewDog - a Scottish brewery set to open a location in Ohio later this year.
They claim to be the first company in the U.S. to offer "paw-ternity" leave - paid leave for employees who have a new dog.
BrewDog, in an announcement made earlier this week, said the benefit will be offered to all of its nearly 1,000 employees across the world, including those at its soon-to-be brewery near Columbus, Ohio, which is set to open in the spring.

"It's not easy trying to juggle work and settle a new dog into your life, and many members of our crew have four-legged friends at home," said company co-founder James Watt. "We wanted to take the stress out of the situation and let our teams take the time they need to welcome their new puppy or dog into their family."
So what do you think - will this become a trend?
