Work Like a Dog Day

Work Like a Dog Day honors and recognizes those who work the hardest out of anyone. It is a day to show appreciation for these hard workers and to follow their lead. Those who work like dogs put in extra effort, don't stop until a task is finished and don't sit idle when there is work to be done. They don't work all the time, but when they do work, they work extremely hard. There are many breeds of dogs that are considered working dogs, such as Dobermanns, German Shepherds, Rottweilers, and Akitas. Working dogs include sled dogs, police dogs, military dogs, search and rescue dogs, detection dogs, herding dogs, service dogs, and therapy dogs. Once these dogs get working, they don't take breaks or nap on the job—they stay focused! They can provide a little inspiration for us today!

How to Observe Work Like a Dog Day

Show some appreciation for all those who work like dogs today by voicing your appreciation for them or by giving them a gift. Use their example to inspire yourself to work like a dog. Set new goals, take on a new task or project, or put in some extra hours. If you have a working dog, such as a service dog or therapy dog, you could show them some appreciation today as well.
