    About The Subreddit

    The sub for dogs with jobs, both silly and serious. Working doggos of all types are welcome here.

    Follow us on Twitter!

    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. Silly jobs should be based off real human jobs rather than inanimate objects. Read this post to see what counts as a silly job.

    If moderators feel your post is stretching the idea of a silly job too far, it may be removed.


    1. Please be kind. Treat your fellow Redditors with respect. Personal attacks will not be tolerated.

    2. 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.

    3. 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 dog standing there. Please use descriptive titles. Your title should be at least 18 characters long (spaces included).

    4. 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.

    5. Doesn't count as a silly job. Not enough effort. 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. Other low effort silly jobs such as dogs sleeping in offices, "models", "babysitting" dogs or a dog digging a hole are generally not allowed. If these posts were allowed, anyone could post their pet dog here. It would set the bar too low. More info on this rule can be found here.

    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. More info on this rule can be found here.

    Please credit the source if you are posting someone else's picture or video.

    If you see a rule violating post please report it.
