What does your dog do for a living?

Most dogs serve in the role of companion animals. There are many dogs and pets, however, that have a specific job aside from being lovable and wonderful creatures.

What “job” does your dog have? Is your dog a service animal? Does your Canine help you on the farm?

As you enjoy your pet and the contributions they’ve made to your life, think about the wonderful things that he or she brings to the table. This is what makes pets so great. They really are incredible creatures!

So what are dogs across America doing? Research shows that certain dog breeds are meant or born to do certain things. For instance, specific dog breeds excel at police work. A Shih Tzu might not be the best detective dog, but a German Shepherd might be.
