Since almost all dog breeds tend to do extremely well in performing a specific task or tasks, listing breeds that make extraordinary work dogs can be a challenge.

The different types of working dogs are categorized or classed based on the specific role each group excels in, like:-
- Search and rescue
- Military and warfare
