Dog Breeds in the Working Group
This fascinating group has performed many jobs in history. Working dogs demonstrate how versatile and intelligent dogs can be by assisting farmers, butchers, shepherds, warriors, and nomadic tribes people. Many have served boldly as guards.
Most of the working dogs are large and know how to think for themselves. As an owner, it's up to you to make sure these wonderful traits are put to their most positive use. Training is essential for these dogs: They like to know what you want from them because they like to get a job done. If you don't tell them what to do, they'll be sure to come up with their own ideas.
To keep them from getting overly protective, you should socialise them early and often. Even the sweetest dogs in this group can be frightening to kids because of their large size.
