What is the most intelligent species of dog?
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.

hi, Dogs who were bred for jobs that require decision making, intelligence, and concentration, such as herding livestock, need to exercise their brains, just as dogs who were bred to run all day need to exercise their bodies. If they don’t get the mental stimulation they need, they’ll make their own work — usually with projects you won’t like, such as digging and chewing. Obedience training and interactive dog toys are good ways to give a dog a brain workout, as are dog sports and careers, such as agility and search and rescue. here’s a list for comparison: http://dogtime.com/dog-breeds/characteri… hope this helps.
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:)
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.
