WHAT DOG BREED IS THE MOST INTELLIGENT?
As an owner and admirer of German Shepherds I would love to say that this breed excelled above all others. But the bottom line is, dogs are dogs, they are all the same species, regardless of “breed” colour or size. Some breeds have been selectively bred to perform useful tasks such as hunting, herding, guarding or retrieving, to the human way of thought these animals seem more “intelligent” but in reality are no more or less clever than the average cross bred mutt. There is no doubt that dogs are intelligent animals and are very quick to learn. But the real intelligence comes from the dog handler, who understands the animals needs and requirements, who understands that working and communicating with any dog is a two way process. The seemingly “stupid” dogs usually have owners with the same quality.
