Now that you've let go of most of your employees, it's critical that you put your remaining resources to work keeping the business afloat - and that includes your dog.
Experts will tell you that breed matters. Some breeds, such as those in the hound group, are simply incapable of reading a script. And others, like Chihuahua's, will tend to yap at your customers.
Best are "smart" breeds like border collies, French poodles and German Shepherds - the latter two having the additional advantage of being bi-lingual.
Also, don't ignore how compelling a puppy can be. People who would never think of doing business with you will stop by, and - at a distance of at least six feet - will tell you that they'd love to pet your dog once the lockdown is over.
