National Work Like A Dog Day - August 5

August 5 is "Work Like a Dog Day," which begs the question, "Are you working hard or hardly working? And what does “Work Like a Dog” mean anyway?

While the origins of “Work Like a Dog Day” are unknown, most people understand that “working like a dog” means acting with total focus, devotion and passion on the task at hand until it’s completed.

Then it’s time to play or rest-other activities that dogs have arguably mastered. At least until it’s time for the next task.  

Alaskan Huskies are sled dogs and people might think pulling a sled is just hard work. Yet we had a Husky named Saska who absolutely LOVED to run. He would have enjoyed the challenge of pulling a sled. The closest he got was pulling my brother Lance on his skateboard. Watching Saska race cars down Highway 9 (don't ask!) is the image that comes to mind when I think of "working like a dog."

To distinguish between “Working Like a Dog” and "Workaholic"- the difference is workaholic people just work hard all the time. No time for pleasure, little time for food, and hardly any time for rest either. It’s a fast track to job burnout and health issues.

“Work Like a Dog Day” is a great opportunity to practice the habit of focusing on “doing one thing at a time,” and wisely choosing the "one thing" that by doing it makes the rest of the day easier and more efficient.

Hi Michelle,  I like the interpretation of working hard with focus and then resting.   That kind of dog I can be.

Michelle,

I have not figured out the meaning of this phrase, "Work like a dog!".  I have watched dogs work and they love doing it...so is that what it is supposed to mean? A
