Borris said she doesn’t expect staff to bring their dogs in on a daily basis. In addition, they should not disturb the other employees or the work processes. In the city council meeting, Borris emphasized the positive psychological effect of the animals in the office. It is not yet clear when the first dogs will accompany their owners to Magdeburg City Hall. Borris could have asserted her domiciliary rights even without a decision by the city council to allow employees to have office dogs in the city hall.
