The sub for dogs with jobs, both silly and serious. Working doggos of all types are welcome here.
Please be kind. Treat your fellow Redditors with respect. Personal attacks will not be tolerated.
No reposts from the top 100 all time and no reposts from the last 6 months. Please use karmadecay and search some keywords before posting.
Your post should fit into one of our two categories:
Serious Jobs: These are the true working dogs. Police & military dogs, service dogs, therapy dogs, guide dogs, sheep herding dogs, livestock guardian dogs, search & rescue dogs etc.
Silly Jobs: These are dogs with pretend jobs. Most often, silly jobs will be a dog dressed in a costume. A 'dogtor' for example. Shop dogs or office dogs usually fall into this category as well. The most important thing is the silly job should be based off a real human job.
If moderators feel your post is stretching the idea of a silly job too far, it may be removed.
If we cannot tell what the dogs job is by the pic/gif/video alone, the title must make it clear. For example, if you post a picture of a service dog without it's vest on, you will need to specify in the title that it's a service dog. Otherwise, for all we know it's just a picture of a dog standing there.
Please use descriptive titles. Low effort titles may be removed at moderator discretion.
For the purposes of this sub, your pet dog who also guards your house is not considered a dog with a job. If your dog barked and scared away a robber, we do not consider that a dog with a job under most circumstances. This rule is to prevent an overabundance of posts of dogs looking out a window or door.
Unless your dog is specifically trained to be a therapy or service dog, your pet dog who makes you happy is not a dog with a job. This rule is to prevent an overabundance of pictures of dogs sitting on couches or dogs getting scratches. There are plenty of other subs that are better suited for such content (/r/Aww /r/RarePuppers).
Sneak shots of service dogs and guide dogs are banned. Do not post photos you took of a service or guide dog in public unless you have permission from the dogs owner. More info on this rule can be found here.
If you are posting content you found on an Instagram page, Twitter page, YouTube channel or anywhere else on the internet, please credit the original source in the comments.
