Dogs are meant to be pets. They live short lives compared to humans. They
should be allowed to enjoy all of their days. Dogs are meant to be
companions, not workers. Service dogs are put under too much stress. Their
jobs are not fun. Some service dogs are servants. They do things like
opening dresser drawers and pulling their owners' wheelchairs.
Guide dogs for people who are blind and other servant dogs are not put in
danger. But police dogs are not as lucky. They face life-and-death situations.
People can choose to put their lives on the line. Dogs don't have that choice.
In 2001, a police dog was shot and killed by police officers. The dog had
caught a person the police were chasing. The police officers didn't realize
that the dog was on their side. They thought he was vicious. So they killed
him. Weeks before the dog was killed, he had acted as a search-and-rescue
dog when the World Trade Center was attacked in New York City.

I suppose you are below the age of 16, to bring up a debate like this. 'Should dogs work' that is probably on of the most idiotic question I have ever heard, if you are going to be bring up an argument like that then at least set yourself a challenge and go in favour of it, no one in this site is gonna pick that as it is a win win battle for the person who disagrees with it. It like saying should we use hamsters as slaves.

Police officers and firefighters also put themselves in life or death situations, but since a human life is far, far more valuable than a dogs life, they can be put to work. Same with other animals
