Not necessarily a bug. The majority of common pets (horses, mules, hydras, giant war elephants, etc) would indeed speed up your production time.

Certainly a "missing feature" in terms of determining how much time each pet should contribute and whether less useful pets (cat, hamster, fluffy wambler) should have any impact impact at all.
