All the dogs that are introduced to the domestic sphere are smart, for they can learn to obey orders and act rather wisely in certain given circumstances. But there are few with remarkable intelligence and brains that will amuse you.
Here is a list of the ten smartest dogs in the world;
Australian Cattle Dog
Australian cattle dogs are usually trained to be work dogs and herding dogs. The most impressive qualities about this breed is that they are very intelligent, alert, watchful, resourceful and fiercely protective about their things and people around them. They fit, strong and active dogs but the drawback here is that they always need to be occupied in some kind of work or else they keep bumping into trouble while finding something amusing to do. They are a very organized and neat breed. Their stuff will always be found where they are supposed to be found.
They are perfect work companions. They are herding dogs as well. They can serve as the best guard dogs and police dogs, thanks to their intelligence and skills.
They may not look it, but do not be fooled by the looks. Although they are cute, pretty, innocent looking dogs, they are smarter, tougher and stronger than what meets the eye. They have outstanding stamina that makes them excellent companions for walks. They can be super protective of their belongings but you can take them anywhere. They are intelligent enough to deal with it.
The Labrador retriever or Lab for short is the most favourite and popular family dog. I personally see them everywhere with the white or cream coloured ones being the most preferred over other colours. They are another breed of very conveniently trainable work dogs that are extremely hard working and great companions for your physical tasks. They are very intelligent and hence can catch on to your orders really quick and learn to obey. They are also one of the most preferred dogs alongside German Shepherds and Golden retrievers, for military and crime investigation purposes.
The name itself says that this is one breed that is a herding one. They take this quality of watching over their herd even in the domestic sphere with themselves. They are overly protective of their families, whether it consists of humans or farm animal herds. They adjust themselves in any kind of environment and being smart and intelligent they grasp things really quickly and are an absolute delight to any owner. The cute soft toy look is a bonus with the dog.
They are as fierce as they come across to be. The most popular choices for guard/ watch dogs. They are genetically coded to be fearless and fit. Because of their smart and intelligent nature, it is easy to train them to be social and friendly. They are actually very gentle if you make friends with them. Their loyalty for their humans is unquestionable.
They are a very curious breed with an inborn desire to please humans around them. They are very hard working and trainable. With their intelligence they can master several commands in no time and hence are really efficient companions in the domestic sphere as well as workplaces. They are also one of the most preferred dogs for therapeutic purposes. Apart from all these, they are a very loving and friendly breed with lots of patience, perfect family dogs that are very gentle even when it comes to kids.
They are a breed very commonly spotted with the military and police forces. They were originally trained for their intelligence. This is the most dependable dog breed for its intelligence, courage, protective and loyal nature. They take quite some time to master commands, but once they are through with it, they almost always obey the very first they are asked to do something. They get bored easily; they like to keep themselves occupied. Hence they are always ready to learn new things to do and be asked to do things because that directs them towards doing something. It gives them a purpose, which is what they want. With all these qualities, they are of course used as herding dogs ( going by the name) and also as watch dogs, search and rescue dogs and they have also been trained by military forces for parachute jumps.
Deceptive looks again! Poodles are fast, sharp minded and easily trainable. The poodle is excellent with creative and obedience. They are best with their human companions. In spite of their size and fur, they can be trained to endure and be watch dogs also at times. They are always active and simply need to do something all the time or else they are very creative in finding their own ways to keep themselves busy and wrecking everything in the process.
And here we have the smartest dog in the countdown. They are extraordinarily intelligent and super energetic all the time. They are a breed with a mind of their own. They do not live up to expectations if their owners are not as fit and energetic as they are. As common with all hard working dogs, even the Border Collies need to have something to do the entire time they are awake else they turn everything into a tragic wreckage. They may not be good around kids because they are not the patient kind and need someone firm to accompany them. To their suitable owners, they are very obedient loyal and true companions.
