Other canine vocations


Dogs have exhibited and continue to exhibit a range of traits and qualities in human assistance disciplines. They have come a long way, even in the past hundred years, bearing in mind that they were still being used to pull small carts containing everything from wood and milk to women and children at the beginning of the 20th century. They moved into show business and street entertainment, while some even joined the circus. In today’s world, they can be trained to detect almost anything – from disease to explosives. And all that time they have been used to hunt game too.
