Types of Working Dogs

Even though there are multiple working dogs out there, not all of them do the same thing, in fact each one of them has a specific target in mind. There are multiple industries that need working dogs, some of them more than others, and here are some great categories that you have to keep in mind.

Adelaide Police Dogs


Adelaide Police dogs are widely encountered mainly because they can help sniff weed as well as many other illegal compounds. They are also very fast so they can help apprehend any culprits during chases, which is also helpful for the legal forces. Using police dogs as working dogs is a practice that has been there for quite some time, and they continue to be one of the most important uses for working dogs.

Let’s face it, nothing is more important than public safety and these working dogs do a great job when it comes to helping our society in a stellar manner. When it comes to local services, they to could use dogs for safety during the night hours. Local emergency services like plumbers, security guards Adelaide needs throughout the city or even locksmiths Adelaide has working in the outer suburbs, they all could be using K9 partners to keep them safe and secure.

SA Search and Rescue


This is yet another case in which dogs are very helpful for the society because they have the ability to help people when they are in dire need of help. Working dogs in the search and rescue teams are using their powerful sense of smell in order to sense people and find their scent and there have been numerous situations in which these dogs actually lost their life trying to save humans. Rescues around the the Murry River will be accelerated with the help of K9 team members.

Adelaide Airport Sniffer Dogs or Detection Dogs


These SA detection dogs are trained to use their powerful sense of smell in order to detect specific persons and compounds. As you might expect such dogs are heavily specialized and they have the ability to use their senses in order to help people, something that they do without a problem at all times.

South Australian Cattle Dogs


Dogs are also suitable for herding cattle, in fact they have been used for such a thing for millennia now and they are still very useful in doing such a thing. Cattle dogs are by far amazing in their own right but they also help our society because without cattle we wouldn’t have many of the foods we like, including dairy products so they are quite beneficial for our society.

 Aussie Sheep Dogs


Pretty much like cattle dogs, sheep dogs have the ability to keep the herd in a single place. This is important for sheep management and it also helps them not to get lost, something that does tend to happen from time to time, which is really important.

As you can see, there are a multitude of working dog types out there so it all comes down to you to make sure that you use the proper one for your sector/industry. At the end of the day it’s all about harnessing the power of these dogs in order to get the best results, and rest assured that the outcome can be well worth it!
