The Working Group contains dog breeds which historically have served humans in the duty of guarding, sledding, and performing water rescues. Because of their size, these breeds are not the best choice for the inexperienced dog owner.
When properly trained, dogs of the working group excel at their intended purpose, for example:
* The Newfoundland does well at water rescue.
* The Alaskan Malamute is skilled at sled pulling.
* The Mastiff breed is designed for guard duty.
These dogs also make fine companion dogs if you have the space and the dedication.
