Dogs are quick learners and very smart, so they are often trained to help their human friends in any way that they can. They can do a wide range of jobs such as service dogs, police dogs, therapy dogs or search and rescue dogs. They help people accomplish tasks that would be difficult or simply impossible. No matter how difficult and hard their jobs are, our thoughtful canines never complain while doing it.
We have compiled 24 photos of dogs who are working in a daily job and are really proud of their work. Scroll down to find out what important jobs these good boys are doing and how they feel about it.
