Top 10 Smartest Dog Breeds

history has gone to show that dogs are much more than man’s best friend. They have saved lives and learned to protect their BFF’s. What does make a dog smart? You can’t base their intelligence the same way you would as a human being.

The intelligence of a dog is usually based on their inherent, adaptive, and obedience characteristics. Some would base it on its ability to learn a new command and the rate at which it obeys the command

Most people usually think that bigger dogs are smarter than their smaller counterparts. This is not necessarily the case as some small dog breeds are also fast learners and can remember over a long period of time. So let’s get to the top 10 smartest dog breeds.

10. Pembroke Welsh Corgi

Pembroke Welsh Corgi

Famous researchers have gone to state that this pooch has almost human-like intelligence. It’s no wonder that they made their way to Buckingham Palace. Stanley Coren, the author of “The Intelligence of Dogs”, goes to warn that smarter dogs may be challenging to control than dumber ones since they can quickly learn to manipulate their masters to their advantage.

Pembroke Welsh Corgis may not be the ideal choice for a pet if you have a child under eight years. These dogs are at par with Australian cattle dogs in terms of temperament. They are, however, good watchdogs with accurate hearing and are always alert. They can even tell when you are sick or mourning a loved one and provide comfort and solace.

9. Rottweiler

This strong dog is also quite the handful. They are known to be highly protective of their family and ferocious while defending it. As a result, it has exceeded in customs, military, and police work. They are not the timid type but possesses a wait-and-see attitude when faced with new interactions.

As such, you should provide them with early socialization to enable them to get used to strangers. They are easy to train as puppies, and you can even correct aggressive behavior. It would be best if you showed them a strong-willed leadership that they can respect; otherwise, they can be quite troublesome.
