Many hands make light work, so the saying goes, but these incredible pictures of three hard working pooches show that the same can be said about paws.
The roles were reversed when former dog trainer Linda Kush, 63, was able to put her feet up while her pets made her house look spick and span.
The three canines – vizslas Reka and Roxie along with weimaraner Riley – got their paws dirty while cleaning their house in Missouri, US.
From vacuuming to polishing and even cleaning the toilet, there’s no end to their canine talents.
The pups can even be seen wearing rubber gloves, mopping the floor, scrubbing dishes and the oven in what would be a dog owner’s dream.

Linda often takes hilarious pictures of her three pooches – and over the last three years, she’s been helping lift people’s spirits by sharing the photos of her pups.
And Pet Owners Independence Day was no exception. The event allows owners to swap places with their pets for the day – and Linda decided to get her dogs to do the chores for a change.
‘It has you swapping places with your pets and I had them doing the chores I would normally do, the last one even has me laying in front of the fireplace – which is their favorite thing to do,’ she said.
Linda added: ‘I had them hard at work that day, they’re very well trained, so it doesn’t take any time at all to get them going.
‘They’re always eager to get to work, it seems like they always want to know what I’m up to.
‘I’d say the one who was the best at their job was probably Roxie, she seems to be the best one at everything – she doesn’t even mind cleaning the toilets, she got the worst job and did so well.’

But it wasn’t all hard work – the trio did get a special treat afterwards.
‘After I had them doing chores, as a reward they got to go on on a hike after all their hard work.’
Of course, while it would be a dog owner’s dream to get helpers as adorable as these three, Linda has been able to train her pups to do just that.
The three dogs enjoy every special day to the full. They even celebrated National Wear Your Pajamas to Work Day by wearing Onesies – and of course, sunglasses.
The dogs have also dressed up with bunny ears and bows during Easter and made a stunning appearance as a trio of elves at Christmas.
