Would Your Dog Earn More Than You At Work?

National Take Your Dog To Work Day is June 21. Have you ever wondered what your dog's human career would be, and how much they’d earn?

What career would your dog pursue if given the opportunity, and how much would your fluffy friend earn? Just in time For National Take Your Dog To Work Day next Friday, June 21, Lord of the Pets set out to answer these burning questions.

The team at Lord of the Pets looked at the 50 most popular dog breeds in U.S., according to the American Kennel Club (AKC). Based on personalities, traits, and portrayal in pop culture, each dog breed was researched and carefully matched with a human job role that best suited its unique characteristics. With this solid foundation in place, the research team turned to Indeed, Glassdoor, and Salary.com to gather data on the average annual salaries for specific job roles.

After careful analysis, one breed emerged as the undisputed champion: The Doberman Pinscher. With its intelligence, assertiveness, and fearlessness, the Doberman was deemed the canine equivalent of a lawyer. With lawyers commanding an average annual salary of $133,000, the Doberman Pinscher proudly claimed the title of the highest-paid dog breed.
