Working Group

Quick to learn, dogs of the Working Group are intelligent, strong, watchful, and alert. Bred to assist man, they excel at jobs such as guarding property, pulling sleds, and performing water rescues. Doberman Pinschers, Siberian Huskies, Rottweilers, and Great Danes are part of this Group, to name just a few. They make wonderful companions but because they are large and naturally protective, prospective owners need to know how to properly train and socialize a dog. Some breeds in the Working Group may not be for the first-time dog owner.
