Smartest Dog Breeds
Obviously, a smart pet dog is just potential without a human ready to put in the time and effort to channel the dog and train's cleverness. Dogs are about as intelligent as the average two-year-old, but there is a range of intelligence across different breeds.|Cleverness in dog breeds can refer to many attributes. Some dog breeds are simpler to train and listen well to orders while others make great working dogs who are able to herd livestock.
Here is a list of the 5 smartest dog breeds. Is your pet dog one of them?
