Working Group Summary

Dogs in the Working Group are quick learners who are usually strong, watchful, and loyal to their owners. These dogs are bred to assist humans in a number of activities, including: guarding, pulling sleds, herding animals, and performing functions for the police and military like search and rescue. These dogs make for great companions, however due to their large size and protective nature, prospective owners should know how to properly train and socialize a dog. That said, not all Working Group breeds are suitable for first-time dog owners. Other examples of popular breeds in the Working Group are Akitas and Bernese Mountain Dogs.
