    How smart is your dog?

    I'm proud to say that mine is the smartest in the world- however, sometimes it's quite frustrating.

    PetMD came up with a list of the top ten smartest canine breeds in the world. See if your dog’s breed makes the grade.

    #10 Australian Cattle Dog
    #9 Rottweiler
    #8 Papillon
    #7 Labrador Retriever
    #6 Shetland Sheepdog
    #5 Doberman Pinscher
    #4 Golden Retriever
    #3 German Shepherd
    #2 Poodle
    #1 Border Collie

    Re: How smart is your dog?

    I have a cocker spaniel. I love that dog. I have to admit he is not real smart. Very good dog though. Dog's are like wives. You don't get them because they are smart.

    Re: How smart is your dog?

    Mine is number 10 on the list.

    But I don't agree with that list. I've known and know some pretty stupid dogs on that list.

    We have a Yorkie-poo, so half of #2... That makes it the new #1 right?

    Id have to argue that Shiba Inus belong on that list.

    Re: How smart is your dog?

    My pooch (labradoodle) is pretty dang smart.....it's hard to stay ahead of him at times b/c he has about every body movement or phrase of mine memorized. I need to stay on my toes or he knows what's coming and how to take advantage of the situation before it even happens. It doesn't take him long to figure out what he can and can't get away with depending on who's "in charge." That's why he just loves going over to grandma's house.

    damn Shih Tzu of mine. No wonder he's stupid. Actually he's pretty smart in my opinion.

    Re: How smart is your dog?

    Mutts are normally considered to be more intelligent than purebreds. And my two dogs are crosses between #1 (Border Collies) and #10 (Australian Cattle Dogs).

    I have spent a lot of time training dogs for flyball and agility competitions and in terms of the listing in Post #1 I can agree that Border Collies and mutts are the easiest dogs to train.

    Re: How smart is your dog?

    My dog is #1 so I'm not going to argue about where they placed him. I will say that I agree with everything they said about Boarder Collies.

    The only thing I should add is that they don't seem to be motivated by food, so tricks relating to food are impossible to teach.

    Re: How smart is your dog?

    It is very hard to rate the intelligence of a dog. Like for example, Boxers are sometimes rated low because of how stubborn they are.

    That list is totally bogus. Here is the indisputable list:

    1. Alex (Stroh's)
    2. Checkers (Richard Nixon's dog)
    3. Underdog (Cartoon)
    4. Brian (Family Guy)
    5. Commander K-9 (Marvin the Martian's dog from Looney Tunes)
    6. Butkus Stallone (Rocky)
    7. Ren Hoek (Ren & Stimpy)
    8. Sam (Sheepdog from Looney Tunes)
    9. Ubu (Ubu Productions. "Sit, Ubu, sit. Good dog")
    10. Tiger (Brady Bunch)

    My wife and I have a Boxer and he's a pretty smart dog. Smarter than any other I've ever had.

    I can vouch for the stubborness though.

    Have had a couple of beagles- not very bright.
