What's your working dog personality?

It's quiz time! Are you an Akita, a Rottweiler, a Siberian Husky, or a Saint Bernard?
Add Yours

What's your working dog personality? (Quiz)You may already have taken our toy dog personality quiz, but toy dogs aren’t for everyone. Perhaps you’re the type to admire dogs who were bred to work—and still do. This is where the dogs of our quiz come in. After all, Saint Bernards were bred to rescue stranded skiers from avalanches, Akitas and Rottweilers continue to be top choices for guard dogs, and Siberian Huskies have long drawn heavy loads across frozen wasteland. These dogs are hard workers, but each breed has its own quirks and personality traits.

Find out which type of working dog suits your own personality by taking the quiz below, and don’t forget to leave a comment sharing your results and whether you agree with them!
