Dogs With Jobs

I think its amazing how the Dog species can be trained in to such a useful tool for the human race, there are a number of uses for trained dogs these days and they really can do their jobs well.
 
Whats your views on some of the stuff they do?

    Dogs are amazing creatures.

    The ones that appear to be able to sniff out cancer in urine are incredible.

    I was talkin some people who were raising money for guide dogs in my area and these dogs are amazing, apparently when you take the little coat off them they just chill out and mess about but as soon as the lead/jacket goes on it they basicially turn in to a sight seeing robot.

    I am very impressed with guide dogs. My dog was a failed guide dog (too hypo, chases sticks; wouldn't be good with a blind person chasing their stick all the time), so I got to see some of the dogs in action at the training centre, they're amazing. I also like sniffer dogs being able to sniff out drugs and explosives etc., dogs being used to prevent/deter crime are priceless.

    My uncle was blind and had 3 guide dogs - wonderful animals. I am an airedale owner and lover and a bit of an amateur historian, Airedales were chosen above all other breeds to work the trenches in WW1 read up on airedale jack an amazing story but sad too. They are the bravest and most humblest of all breeds imo wonderful forgotten breed in this their country of origin.

    our dog guards the house


    if anyone called at the door he used to get excited and whizz in the kitchen - we never had any intruders


    these days, fortunately, he barks at them instead.
