    I am inclined to say no there should not be a policy. Clearly a good company will encourage staff to do the right thing and reduce absenteeism by good management practices and communication plus all of the other personal items applicable to some not all. I therefore put the dog leave or pet leave in the same bracket. Staff should feel able to speak to management when they have an issue with a pet which needs managing and good managers will allow reasonable leave. A policy formalises an issue and over takes management absolving them from speaking to staff and managing!

    Good grief !
    Oh well, at least it's generated some free publicity for BrewDog - I love the way they slipped in that they make beer as well. Nice, clever. You failed to mention where can I buy some though. Nul Points (thank you, Katie).
