A new puppy can be a handful.


So one company is offering 'paw-ternity' leave for new owners. 


The idea comes from BrewDog, a Scottish brewery set to open a location in Ohio this year. 


The beer maker offers a week of paid leave for employees with new puppies or rescued dogs to ensure owners can help their pets get adapted to new surroundings. 


BrewDog is the first company in the US to offer paw-ternity leave.
