What is the most intelligent species of dog?
When I want to buy a dog I don’t look for intelligence, because I want it to be a true friend for me, to be mutual love. And of course, it is very important how you take care of it and how you train it. I am a dogaholic and I have, unfortunately (I want more) two dogs and I love them a lot, I like to take care of them and to play with them every day. And about food, I try to feed them with the best food and for a while, I buy from Woof Bark Growl, I checked the ingredients, and seems that the dogs like it a lot because they don’t wait for me to put it in their bowl.
It is difficult to answer the question: “Which food is better?” Each owner must choose the food suitable for his dog. Important for many owners is the cost of feed. When evaluating the cost of feed, consider the daily feed rate recommended by the manufacturer. In different types of feed, it is very different. Poor quality feeds have a lower cost, but a higher daily feed rate. Therefore, before you buy dog food, you must carefully weigh the pros and cons.

I’m sure it’s subjective. There is some evidence that the breed of dog is distinguished by special or great intelligence. I think that everything is very individual, and depends largely on the development of the dog from childhood. One thing I know for sure that when the smartest dog to dress in some such suit or throw a dog hat, it will immediately become the most ordinary and funny:)
Define intelligence first. Any list you will see measures how trainable or biddable a dog is, not intelligence. A terrier is more intelligent than a shepherd when it comes to killing vermin. A shepherd is more intelligent than a terrier when it comes to herding. Etc. And yes, there are shepherds that can kill vermin, and terriers that can herd – but those are individuals, not the breed in toto. Add: Eugene – last time I looked, chihuahuas had snouts…
1. “Intelligence” is something that is individual to the dog. There is no breed of dog that is more intelligent than any other. But rather than just cite my opinion on this, let me cite the research: –The research done with “Allegheny Sue” by Peters (and you can find details about it cited in “The Dog’s Mind” by Bruce Fogle, DVM). With Allegheny Sue, they took a timid, neurotic, dumb dog and tested to see if she could pass on those traits to her litters. She did. And her litters scored much worse on a range of tests, were quicker to bite, displayed worse behavior than other dogs of the exact same breed from different dams. –The research done by Scott and Fuller with a wide range of breeds (from working breeds to herding breeds to terriers to retrievers to toys and also mixed breeds). Jane Killion, quoting their work says “No breed of dog is inherently better at learning than any other breed or mix of breeds.” Let me explain….Scott and Fuller ran dogs through a bunch of tests. What
