Dogs are about as intelligent as the typical two-year-old, but there is a range of intelligence across different breeds.|Intelligence 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.
Here is a list of the 5 smartest dog breeds. Is your canine one of them?
