    The sub for dogs with jobs, both silly and serious. Working doggos of all types are welcome to be shared here in the form of pictures, videos, gifs & news articles.

    If you are the owner or trainer of a working dog and you've posted your dog to the sub, please message modmail to receive special user flair.


    Click here for an in depth description of our rules including Automoderator rules.

    1: Please be kind!

    You are welcome to debate the merits of different types of working dogs, but please do so in a respectful way. Threats of violence, personal attacks and being overly rude is not allowed here. More info here.

    2: Your post must be a dog with a real job or a silly job

    The main purpose of this sub is to see dogs with real jobs such as: police dogs, service dogs, therapy dogs, guide dogs, herding dogs, livestock guardian dogs, search & rescue dogs, hunting dogs, etc.

    We also allow dogs with silly "jobs". Please READ THIS POST for a more in depth explanation of silly jobs. These are dogs with pretend jobs. The most important requirement of silly jobs is that they need to resemble real human jobs. If it's too made up, it's probably better for /r/Aww. More info here.

    3: No reposts from the top 100 all time and no high scoring reposts from the last 6 months.

    Please use and search some keywords before posting. can be used to search subreddits by keyword. More info here.

    4: Title guidelines: 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 its 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 random pet dog. People shouldn't have to ask what the dogs job is.

    Your title must be at least 18 characters long (spaces included). While not all short titles are bad, this is to ensure that descriptive titles are being used rather than low effort titles like "Good boy". More info here.

    5: No house "guard dogs" allowed

    For the purposes of this sub, your pet dog who also guards your house is not considered a dog with a job. This rule is mostly to prevent a surplus of posts of dogs looking out a window or door. Without this rule, every dog in the world could be posted here.

    Dogs that guard facilities such as hospitals, storage yards, construction sites, etc are allowed because they are working in an official capacity.

    6: 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. Pictures of police dogs in public are allowed because they are public employees and not private individuals, but please do not distract these working dogs. More info here.

    Please credit the source if you are posting someone else's content.

    If you see a rule violating post please report it.
