Dogs are fantastic office companions! They are good at performing tasks. They are employed by different organizations to perform tasks that humans will have difficulty doing.
Having a dog in the organization can also provide a therapeutic effect in the workplace. Studies show that pets can make people calmer while working in the office.
The US Marine Corps has a tradition of including an English Bulldog in their company. English Bulldogs serve as a mascot for the Marine Corps.
Welcome, Lance Corporal Chesty XV!
Lance Corporal Chesty XV was introduced in 2018 when Chesty XIV retired. He was still a puppy when he started his training with the Marines. At 1 ½ year old, he was promoted to Lance Corporal.
The Marines put so much value on their mascots. They call their mascot as ‘devil dog.’
Chesty XV goes into rigorous training for three months, and part of his practice is shadowing his predecessor, Chesty XIV. His official role is to serve as the official mascot of the Marines. He joins the evening parades in Washington, D.C. every Friday during summer.

Staff Sergeant Alexander Spence, Chesty XV’s handler, said that the dog fascinates with gloves. Once he gets a glove, it would be tough to get the glove away from him.
Now that Chesty XV has assumed official duties, his primary role is to serve as official mascot in the Marine Barracks Washington’s evening parades. The parades happen on Fridays in the summer in Washington, D.C.
As a mascot, Lance Corporal Lance XV will also serve as a morale booster for the Marine troops and the families in the United States.
We can’t wait to see you at the Marine Barracks Washington evening parade, Lance Corporal Chesty XV!
