Working Group General Information

The AKC Working Group dog breeds were all bred to perform specific tasks. The types of tasks varied, but included guarding and protecting, life saving, pulling, and water rescue.

The breeds in this group share characteristics of intelligence and an ability to learn quickly. Most are large dogs with excellent strength. Many of these breeds are the happiest when performing their jobs or filling their days with activity. These working dogs need room to run everyday. Their size, strength, and innate nature to want to work, sum up the point that extensive training is recommended.

Some of the most well known breeds and their inbred tasks include the Siberian Husky, bred to pull sleds; the Newfoundland, bred to help with water rescue and drafting, and the Great Dane, originally bred to hunt boar.

The Cane Corso is one of two newly admitted AKC Working Group breeds. Of Italian descent, they are excellent guardians of property, and are loving devoted family members.
