The Smartest Dog Breeds According to Dr. Stanley Coren »

(24 votes)

There is a great diversity in canine breeds and oftentimes they respond to the needs of different people: friendly dogs, hunting dogs, loyal dogs... and obviously some breeds are smarter and others are more brutish. To evaluate the "average intelligence" of a breed several characteristics are considered, such as functional intelligence and the degree of obedience (for example, by counting the number of exercises needed before a new command is learned). Another factor is the capacity a dog has to recall an order without having to perform the drill repeatedly. Some breeds even learn well when trained by relatively inexperienced trainers. This is the original classification drafted by Dr. Stanley Coren.
