Top 10 Smartest Dog Breeds

The top 10 smartest dog breeds may be surprising, does your pup make the list? Dog intelligence is measured by two qualities: the ability to learn new commands easily, and obedience to perform them at least 95% of the time. Researchers have invested years into trying to understand canine intelligence and a lot is still unknown, but it’s agreed that dogs are much smarter than originally thought.

Why does it matter if your dog is smart? Well, lets start by stating that it doesn’t matter to the dog itself. Overall, a smarter dog needs much more stimulation, attention, and companionship. These qualities are good to be aware of when considering what you may be getting yourself into when welcoming a new dog into your family.
