Working Dog Breeds

Working Group is in general those dog breeds used for accomplishing work. There are as many types of work for dogs as there are types of dogs. Lapdogs may work as therapy dogs, herding dogs may work livestock, and guard dogs may work at defense of people or property. Most dogs today are kept as pets rather than for any particular work. Modern purebred breeds developed from large guardian, herding and Spitz type dogs are usually quick to learn, and these intelligent, capable animals make solid companions. Their considerable dimensions and strength alone, however, make many working dogs unsuitable as pets for average families. By virtue of their size alone, these dogs must be properly trained.
