Smartest Dog Breeds
Of course, a smart pet dog is just potential without a person ready to put in the time and effort to train and channel the dog's intelligence. Dogs are about as intelligent as the typical two-year-old, but there is a range of intelligence across several breeds.|Cleverness in dog breeds can refer to many characteristics. Some dog breeds are easier to train and listen well to demands while others make great working dogs who are able to herd livestock.
If you want an intelligent friend, get one of these breeds:
1. Border Collie is one of the world's smartest and most popular dog breeds. Originally developed as a herding dog because of its intelligence and obedience, the Border Collie is a medium-sized dog recognized for its friendly temperament.
2. Golden Retriever is one of the world's favourite dog breeds. Originally bred as gun dogs, the Golden Retriever is a clever, friendly and trainable buddy.
3. Rottweiler (a.k.a. "Rottie") is a faithful, courageous and smart dog breed who is known for its unwavering dedication to its owners, whom they will defend at all costs.
4. Poodles not only are very smart, but they're also honored, active dogs, with the added benefit of being hypoallergenic. Because of their high intelligence, poodles can be easily trained to track, hunt, retrieve, and follow.
5. German shepherd is the second most in demand dog breed because they're brave, confident, and smart. They are outstanding all-purpose workers and are used in a number of specialized situations as police dogs or service dogs.
It’s amazing that dogs this smart and lovable were once on the verge of extinction. Happily, the Chinook was brought back from near oblivion by devotees who cherished the breed’s many virtues. They’re calm, people-oriented dogs with a special feel for children. Chinooks are trainable, eager workers who aim to please. Sledding, carting, obedience, agility, search-and-rescue work, and herding are a few pursuits they’ve mastered. Still a pretty rare breed, Chinooks aren’t easy to come by. But their fans say they’re worth the search.
