Happy National Dog Day!!

national-dog-day

Once a year, a day rolls around where we get to take stock in that special species that has stood by mankind’s side for over a millenia. Dogs are our friends, family, guardians, aides, teammates, and children all wrapped into one furry ball. That is why we love them so much – dogs do it all!

Dogs have been working alongside people for as long as anyone can remember. From guarding our homes to herding our livestock, dogs have played an integral role in human evolution. But evolution never stops, and as such, working dogs need to stay ahead of the curve if they want to stay employed.

Here are some of the new kinds of working dogs we can expect from the next generation.
