Top 10 Best Cities For Dogs

Due to the current climate of the world, many employers are opting to shift employee positions from in-person to virtual work. This means that more people are working from home and have options to telecommute from anywhere in the world. Some companies have decided to keep this change moving forward, while others are doing a temporary virtual run until things open back up after COVID-19 is less of a health crisis.

Either way, it’s clear that working from home has pushed the demand for pets, and adoption rates have skyrocketed for dogs and cats alike. With more people owning dogs and working remotely, it may have some wondering: What’s the best city to own a dog in?
