In some cases, he is our highly intelligent protector as well.  If you have a working dog, you may nod and smile in agreement when we say they are almost always "switched on".  Working dogs need a job, whether it be to herd, guide or search and rescue.  With endless articles related to animals and COVID-19, we are curious…

Stunt Puppy Nano BowlProduct Reviews
