The CBS "Early Show" ran a story about dogs and their intelligence, or lack thereof. In the story, they shared their list of the top 10 smartest and top 10 dumbest dog breeds. These were their picks.
I have never seen a multi-colored poodle....wish you could learn to picture one...it would be interesting to see...:O)
Chrissy the DC Leghound looks like he is ready to mount Zero for some more lovin.
I used to let my dachsund balance my checkbook.
This is absurd-a poodle smarter than a beagle-no way!
Could the answer be frustrated? When it comes to a beautiful dog, they would be right up near the top...
Dingy Harry, Barney Frank (checking out a male Great Dane)...AND Pelosi (who hasn't been able to hold a gum ball in her mouth for years)
Beautiful and highly intelligent animals.
LOL now that is one smart doxie.
I had an Australian Cattle Dog (aka Blue Heeler) She was in my opinion the smartest dog in the world. I learned one very important thing from her, never get a dog that is smarter than you are!
My dachshund is the most cunning dog I’ve ever owned. He not one to do elaborate tricks like other dogs I’ve had, but that’s because he’s clever enough to know he doesn’t have to. Just like he’s clever enough to know that if his little legs get tired, and he refuses to walk, I’ll have to carry him.
Why did you stop?
Could the answer be frustrated?
Only for the first two years or so. They are lovers, clowns, athletes, energetic, empathetic and hard to groom. My current guy's grandmother was named Super Noodle...that about sums it up.
Of course the smartest dog is the Border Collie. We had one that even outsmarted us!
I have had three wonderful dachshunds in my life and my Maxwell is now eleven. I will never own another breed, because once you understand and have lived a total of 26 years with dachshunds, you realize you have earned a doctorate degree in dogs, there is nothing else to accomplish. LOL!
We all loved our Blue Heeler, Monty, so much. We’ve been thinking of getting another but it’s too soon for me. I used to love watching him “work” our outdoor barbeques. Herding the guests’ children into two or three different groups.:)
Thats what my father always said....maybe we are related...that would not be good news for you :O)
Intelligence is measured in more than one way. There is more than one type.
My English Mastiff is the smartest dog. He knows when my wife gets up he can climb on the bed to sleep with me. He knows how to wake me but not her when he has to go out. If I am not home he waits. He won’t disturb her.
He knows who should and shouldn’t be in the house.
What he isn’t is active. He won’t fetch a paper,slippers, or run an obstacle course. But, neither will I.
