Labor Day Working Dogs Tribute | Dog Song Saturday

We're celebrating Labor Day today on Dog Song Saturday at Talking Dogs.

Americans have recognized the first Monday in September as Labor Day since 1882.  Labor Day was established to honor the American labor movement and we celebrate it to honor the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.

While all of us here at Talking Dogs and For Love of a Dog wish to recognize America's human workers, we can help but feel canine workers should be included in the celebration, too.  

Dogs perform many tasks and serve in many different roles as working dogs: service and assistance dogs, therapy dogs, search and rescue dogs, herding and hunting dogs, war dogs or K9 Corps members, police and tracking dogs, and so much more.

So, today we bring you a barking good video about working dogs that was created by attendees of the 2010 Penn Vet Working Dog Conference.  The soundtrack to this Tribute to Working Dogs, is a great original dog song: Little Dog's Day by Glenn Jones.

Sit. Stay. Relax and enjoy this Tribute to Working Dogs and have a pawsome Labor Day holiday!  Be sure to fetch us every Saturday for a new dog song music video. In fact, check out our Dog Song Saturday music collection. You'll be surprised how many we've found.


  1. Love it! Lots of important working dogs out there!

  2. My grandpa, who is a wheelchair, had a service dog who was specially trained to help him around the farm. Her name was Belle and she would pick objects up off the ground if he dropped them. Would help him open the barn doors. And one time he fell out of his wheelchair and she went to get help!


Go ahead... bark at us!
