Labor Day for Hard Working Dogs Too

0

“Labor Day is the celebration of the value and dignity of work, and its role in the American way of life.” - History.com

Out on a farm, in airports, patrolling war torn regions of the world, and on the streets of every city, you will find hard working individuals with a dog by their side. In honor of Labor Day, I’d like to recognize some of the hardest laborers in America...dogs. There are many different jobs that dogs can have, but most commonly you will find dogs working in these areas:

Search and Rescue
Military and War
Detection
Service and Assistance
Guarding and Security
Therapy
Hunting
Herding
Sledding

All kinds of dog breeds fill these jobs and we want to pay tribute to all the hard working dogs out there, and say thank you, we value your work. Take some time to relax today (as your humans are probably doing right now).

This classic Sesame Street video is a perfect way to recognize a dog, a hard working dog (please excuse the poor quality, but like I said, it's a classic). Enjoy and Happy Labor Day.



Do you have hard working dog with a job? What kind of job does your dog have? We'd like to hear about your dog, your hard working dog.
