Pig the dog lives in Herefordshire with mum Toki, who works for Film Hub Wales, and he loves it when he gets to go to work with her.

“He’s such great company,” she told the BBC. “He’s getting on a bit now, and he’s been deaf since birth so it’s kind of handy as he doesn’t get affected by sounds.

“But also he’s not aware of the racket he makes, so sometimes work calls get interrupted by a bark or two.

“Sometimes I feel bad I’m not spending more time playing with him while I’m working but he provides therapy on tougher days and joy all the time.”

Gemma Down told the BBC it is “definitely easier” working from home, as she does, if you a have a dog to keep you company.

“It can get kind of lonely,” she said. “He also makes me actually get up from my desk and walk outside.

“The only difficulty is being in a customer-facing role when he decides to let me know very vocally there is a squirrel outside whilst I’m on the phone!”
