Horses train easily but are quite stupid.Easily trained humans are as we call in general terms, sheep. One of the most intelgent dogs not even mentioned is a Jack Russel Terrier IMHO.Chows are very independent, hard to train but have an uncanny ability to reason as a JRT does.Being smart has nothing to do with being submissive.
Quite right. My wife wants to add a JR to our menagerie, but I refused. I consider JR's to be the canine equivalent of a velociraptor. Highly intelligent problem solvers. I can't handle a dog like that.
I’ll take your word for it. I’m not an expert. I do know that Chows are excellent watch-dogs.
