DANIEL LITTLE FALLS, NY 3/4/2011 8:13:44 AM Working dogs were originally bred for specific purposes these traits are in their genes. If an owner trains their dog with these traits in mind most of these dogs truly excel. They seem to really love and enjoy having a job to do. We trained both our Newfoundland and Leonberger in water rescue. They couldn't wait for their daily training times. It takes alot of time and patience but seeing them doing what they originally bred to do and loving it is well worth the effort.
