Working dogs span the spectrum of careers from high powered physical athletes working in protection fields to highly cognitive dogs working in the service sector. Regardless of the career, all working dogs share a common requirement for physical capabilities and mental aptitude and partnership with their handler. In this Research Topic, Working Dogs: Form and Function, twenty manuscripts address the development and assessment of the physical Form, behavioral selection of dogs that contribute to Function, a focus on olfactory Function, occupational hazards that interfere with Form and Function and the relationship between the working dog and handler that addresses Form and Function of the working dog team.
