Dogs are much smarter than we think. And as for which breed of dog is the smartest … here is the rating!
#1 Border Collie
These dogs always want to learn and delight their owners, which gives them first place in the ranking of the most intelligent dogs. They literally understand us.
Poodles learn quickly and often surprise their owners with how humanoid they can be. Hunting, tracking, dexterity, and obedience are all about them.
#3 German Shepherd
German shepherds are smart and alert, so it is not surprising that they are often used as service dogs for law enforcement agencies, search and rescue people and help people with disabilities.
#4 Golden Retriever
Easy to train. They are simply happy to carry out commands and can be relied on in various situations. Golden retrievers are used as service, search and rescue, and therapy dogs.
#5 Doberman Pinscher
A real working dog. These dogs are in demand for their intelligence, learning ability, and protective qualities.
Shelties are able to follow detailed directions, and can also independently solve problems. Great family dogs, most of all they love a good hug.
