So, in order…here are the top ten smartest breeds:
German Shepherd Dog
So, I know that this list will make some people happy and some people mad. My friend, Brenda T from Indy will be happy with the #8 pick and, obviously, a large number of dog owners in the US will be happy with the #7 pick (given that Labs have been the #1 registered breed for 21 years now!).
I guess I really can’t be too picky since I don’t know how the breeds were ranked, but I can tell you my opinion…I think most dog breeds exhibit a similar level of intelligence. You will note that a vast majority of dogs on this list are either working or herding breeds, so it makes you wonder if their “jobs” have anything at all to do with their perceived higher level of smarts.
I want to hear your opinions…d you think these lists are accurate? Any examples of a dog that you considered “super smart”?
Oh…and why isn’t anyone focusing on the top smartest CAT breeds???
