Working Dogs Cyberzine Fred Forrest, Publisher
Date of first publication: May 13, 1996
Welcome to Working Dogs
Thank you for visiting Working Dogs! This site was launched on May 13, 1996, the first international electronic clearinghouse for information about working and sporting dogs and the people who work, train, breed, and love them.
Working Dogs pages are accessed over half a million times each month by readers from Argentina to Zaire, establishing this as the premier international news, information, and educational resource for working and sporting dog enthusiasts.
What is Working Dogs? Our mission is to provide continuously updated information for and about working and sport dog professionals and enthusiasts and their dogs. Our interest is a personal one -- we own several German Shepherd Dogs that we train for Assistance dog, Schutzhund, and agility and one Rottweiler/GSD Mix that has worked for over 9 years as an Assistance Dog.
Working Dogs Cyberzine is "working and sporting dog central" -- where anyone in the world can instantly access current, accurate information about canine health, training, events, and newsmaking accomplishments. This site focuses on our canine athletes and duty-bound heroes who are active in Assistance, Guide, Schutzhund, Ring Sport, K-9, drug and bomb detection, Search and Rescue, herding, sledding, agility, flyball, guiding, therapy, and more. If there's a job to do, a working dog can do it; a competition to win, and you'll find a sporting dog on the podium.
Working Dogs is a free, electronic magazine. In addition to the articles that I write and publish on the site, readers from around the world also submit articles, news items, and event announcements. I regularly surf the Internet and provide links to articles and information of interest to working dog enthusiasts. Working Dogs is published only on the web, at no cost both to its readers and to those who wish to promote their working and sport dog-related trials and events. Subscribe to our convenient, freeWorking Dogs Newsletter to stay on top of late-breaking news and events.

I invite you to contribute to the ongoing efforts to make it easy and fun for working and sport dog people to find out who's doing what, and how and where in the world it's happening right now.
Submit your special interest articles, your organization's news of events and training schedules, litter announcements, advertisements, training tips, information about canine products and supplies, and news about titles, honors and accomplishments. I welcome current information about working dogs and the people who are committed to their training, health, and successful careers. Working Dogs readers have helped create the world's first and best working and sporting dog cyberzine on the Internet!
