Minneapolis company offering 'fur-ternity' leave for those with new pets. Gray Hall reports during Action News at 9 a.m. on August 26, 2018.

Bringing home a new pet can be a little stressful, in particular, if you are trying to house-train a puppy.

A Minneapolis company says it feels your pain, and has created a new perk for its employees.

The digital marketing firm, Nina Hale, allows those who bring home a new pet to work from home for a week.

The company's Executive Vice President says the idea came about when an employee asked for some flexibility when adopting a new pet.

The company says that the policy doesn't work for those with pets that require a cage or a tank, such as a fish.
