Everyday English - Idioms with the word Dog V


Let’s look at idioms this week that talk about 'DOGS'

Work like a dog

"I have to guard the sheep."
This idiom comes from a time when dogs weren’t often pets, but usually had to work very hard to earn their food. This expression means to work very very hard!


“My team at the office had to work like a dog this month to prepare for our year end final report. We are all so tired!”

"It's been a hard month, we worked like dogs!"
