The idea that working dogs don't make the best pets is nothing new. When you take a dog that has been bred for generations to work wild boar and rough cattle, not to mention kill varmints and protect a ranch, you can't expect those instincts and drives to disappear simply because you live in the suburbs. The purpose and history of a breed isn't just a neat fact to recite to friends, it is the genetic essence of your dog. Ignoring this is unfair to dogs and people alike.

This post from Terrierman does an excellent job of answering the question, What's Wrong With Working Dogs as Pets?

And here is what other breed associations have said about owning a working dog.
