Dog JobsThis is a featured page

From family member to the best of friends, dogs occupy a special place in our hearts and homes. But, as we read the most heroic of tales and we learn that dogs can be and do even more for their human friends. They are often times heroes, providing help to those with disabilities, supporting law enforcement, or rescuing those in need.

This section is dedicated to those dogs who go above and beyond, and we hope that you will help build this tribute by adding your knowledge to the pages. We've started a list of some of these wonderful jobs.

If you know about these dogs, we want to hear from you! Create a page and describe what they do, how they train, and of course, if you know any personally, we would love a profile on the dog along with the dog's associated organization, so that our wonderful wikiFido community members can contribute to their organizations, if they like.
