Dogs are the true friends of man for alreadymany centuries. They accompany their masters everywhere, share with them joys and sorrows, work and rest.

For this, they must have a number of qualities that not all breeds can boast of.
Usually they are large, strong and strong animals,capable of prolonged labor, movement over long distances. They are tireless, obedient and smart. Any breed of long-haired service dogs, like smooth-haired, requires proper upbringing and long walks, and other types of exercise are also useful for them. They will be devoted to their master and will learn to fulfill all his wishes. However, dogs of this purpose are unlikely to get up and curl between their legs.

It can be either long-haired or short-haired. The field of work of these dogs is very extensive. They can be found in specialized forces (for example, on the border), they can also serve as guides and protect the herds. These animals show miracles of endurance and ingenuity. And the most famous breed of long-haired service dogs is, perhaps, a collie. Glory to her brought also the cinema. The movie "Lassie" is especially popular.

Another breed of long-haired service dogs,which is widely known, is St. Bernard. These large and non-malicious animals work as rescuers in the most difficult weather conditions, helping (thanks to tirelessness, endurance and excellent scent) to save lives for people in critical situations.
