Dog in­tel­li­gence ranked by breed

Dog in­tel­li­gence ranked by breed.

Over 200 pro­fes­sional dog obe­di­ence judges ranked 110 dog breeds on the ba­sis of their in­tel­li­gence; the list be­low is the re­sult. But re­mem­ber, as Stan­ley Coren notes in his book The In­tel­li­gence of Dogs, de­pend­ing upon your life­style, it may be more dif­fi­cult to live with a more in­tel­li­gent, rather than a less in­tel­li­gent dog. A smart dog can prove a more chal­leng­ing com­pan­ion and all breeds on the list bring their own unique mix of won­der­ful at­tributes.
