6 Of The Smartest Dog Breeds In The World

There are plenty of factors that play into whether or not your dog is a genius or not, but some breeds have been discovered to simply be smarter than others. There are a couple of genius breeds that you would be better off selecting, especially if you are interested in teaching them commands and performing in dog shows. The following ten breeds are more likely to pick up new commands, are easier to train overall, are charming, and completely affectionate to humans. Here are 6 of the smartest breeds of dogs around. We highly recommend you purchase one of these the next time you want a pet.

6. American Foxhound
The American Foxhound is the type of dog that wins the number one spot in a national dog show. In fact, one did in 2013. They may appear similar to a Beagle, and that is because they are a distant cousin, but these beautiful canines are great at learning commands and being a friendly pet.

5. Border Collie
The Border Collie, along with being incredibly cute, is also highly intelligent. Originally known for being herding dogs, Collies are great at learning and are incredibly loyal pets.

4. Pekingese
While the Pekingese may be one of the uglier breeds of dog, these small creatures are actually rather smart. Don’t let the small stature fool you, their intelligence makes them the perfect choice, but families with toddlers may want to avoid them, as they hate being poked or grabbed.

3. Irish Water Spaniel
Another dog that isn’t the prettiest to look at, the Irish Water Spaniel is known as a gun dog. They originated from Spain, according to historians, and are known to be good at both hunting and retrieving objects and people from the water. Their intelligence comes in the form of being so easily trained.

2. Siberian Husky
The Siberian Husky is probably one of the most adorable breeds to be featured on this list, and also one of the smartest, too. They are protective in their nature, and tend to focus intently on their task. They are strong, have great endurance, and are loyal pets.

1. Shetland Sheepdog
The Shetland Sheepdog is iconic, as this is the dog we all saw in Lassie, which ended up saving a young boy from the well. Sheepdogs were bred for farm life, but they are still great at learning new commands and ensuring their family is safe.
