Dogs in the Working Group were bred to perform jobs to help people. For example, the Rottweiler and the Great Pyrenees are guard dogs. The Bernese Mountain Dog pulls a cart; the Alaskan Malamute pulls a sledge; the Siberian Husky pulls a sled.
The purpose of the club is to protect and preserve the nature of the pure-bred working dog. We do this by adhering to the Breed Standards, which are written descriptions of each breed. The Standard lays out each aspect of a breed: the way each body part looks and works as well as the breed temperament, or how a dog should behave. We hold dog shows where the purpose of the judging is to find the dog that best represents the words of the standard.
We also do as much genetic testing as is available to ensure we breed healthy puppies. Healthy puppies can perform the job duties the breed standard calls upon the dogs to do.
We hold shows on Labor Day weekend at the CBA (Chugiak Benefit Association) field in Chugiak, 18606 Old Glenn Hwy. Conformation held on Saturday and Sunday.
We also have 2 conformation shows in Novmber at Raven Hall in Palmer,
