Smartest Dog Breeds
Of course, a clever dog is just potential without a person willing to put in the time and effort to channel the dog and train's cleverness. Dogs are about as clever as the normal two-year-old, but there is a variety of intelligence across different breeds.|Cleverness in dog breeds can refer to many characteristics. Some dog breeds are simpler to train and listen well to commands while others make great working dogs who are able to herd livestock.
If you want an intelligent companion, get one of these breeds:
1. Border Collie is just 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 known for its friendly temperament.
2. Golden Retriever is one of the world's most-liked dog breeds. Originally bred as gun dogs, the Golden Retriever is a clever, friendly and trainable companion.
3. Rottweiler (a.k.a. "Rottie") is a faithful, courageous and smart dog breed who is known for its unwavering commitment to its owners, whom they will defend at all costs.
4. Poodles not only are very clever, but they're also pleased, active dogs, with the added advantage 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 sought-after dog breed because they're courageous, confident, and smart. They are outstanding all-purpose workers and are used in a number of specialized situations as police dogs or service dogs.
The McNabs reputation as an indefatigable "all-weather" dog is also opening up a new avenue of work for the dog: Search and Rescue. Currently McNabs are working as evidence search dogs, cadaver dogs, archaeology dogs, and area search dogs for missing persons. Where many other breeds have to be pulled off the search because the dog is tiring, the only limitation for the McNab is the energy of its handler.
