Dust‐obscured galaxies (DOGs) represent a recently‐discovered, intriguing class of mid‐IR luminous sources at high redshifts. Evidence is mounting that DOGs (selected on the basis of extreme optical/mid‐IR color cut and high mid‐IR flux level) may represent systems caught in the process of host galaxy formation and intense SMBH growth. Here we report the results of an X‐ray spectroscopic survey aimed at studying the X‐ray properties of these sources and establishing the fraction of Type 2 quasars among them.
