The Working Group

Breeds in the working group were originally bred to perform labor intensive tasks to assist human beings in their daily lives. Working dogs tend to be bigger, stronger and more robust than other dogs. Working dog enthusiasts have been concerned with retaining these breeds versatility and function along with form. These breeds now often serve as Police dogs, Search and Rescue dogs, Therapy dogs, Sled dogs, and Draft dogs. Because of their large size and protective tendencies, they need proper socialization and training, along with plenty of exercise. If you can provide a working dog with a job to do, you'll have an enthusiastic partner for life.
