Animals in the workplace: we hear about the experience of guide dogs for the blind, and an office where employees are encouraged to bring their dogs to work.

Animals in the workplace: workers made to toil ludicrous hours, and never, ever do they get paid a penny. We hear about the experiences of guide dogs for the blind, and an office where employees are encouraged to bring their dogs to work. Plus Dr Philip Low, a leading neuroscientist at Stanford University, talks about animal rights and consciousness, and animal behavioral scientist Con Slobodchikoff gives us a lesson in the language of prairie dogs.
