Have you ever wondered what breed of dogs are considered the smartest dogs?
It’s probably because dogs are known to be smart animals and often used to protect, work or even perform tricks. The smartest dog breeds all present similar traits that are the foundation of their intelligence. Smart dogs can be recognized because they are usually easy to train, protective, loyal and have a great working ability.
Some of the most intelligent dog breeds include some very popular dog breeds such as, for example, the Border collie which has great agility and obedience, the poodle which is one of the easiest breed to train or the German Shepherd which is often used a police search dog because of its protective and courageous nature.
Others smarter than average breeds include the Golden Retriever which is very popular and great at performing tricks, the Doberman Pinscher, a great guard dog and a wonderful family dog if trained early, as well as the Shetland Sheepdog which used to be used to guard and herd hundred of sheep and cattle.
As you can see, the smartest dogs are also the most popular and often owned breeds of dogs. That’s because the high levels of obedience, loyalty and affection that smart dogs exhibit are qualities that are greatly sought-after by dog lovers.
Lastly, Labrador Retriever, Papillion, Rottweiler and Australian Cattle Dogs are also all considered breeds with higher than average intelligence. The Rottweiler, even though it has a bad reputation because of its aggressive nature, can be trained to make great family pets. Labrador Retrievers, on the other hand are often used as guide dogs which require a great deal of intelligence in order to be able to safely and efficiently guide and assist blind individuals in their daily routines.
If you are looking to adopt one of the smartest dogs, these breeds are all great choices and would all make a great addition to your family.
