18 Most Intelligent Dogs

Border Collie

The AKC recommends giving border collies lots of mental and physical stimulation. The breed is intelligent and good at communicating with humans, so it's not surprising that many can get what they want from their owners. Thus, the border collie is the world's smartest dog.

2. Poodle

French dog breeds like the poodle are considered high-maintenance. Curly hair won't style itself. But don't think they're less smart. The breed is smart and emotional. Coren ranks the poodle second in intelligence after the border collie.

3. German shepherd

Coren ranks the German shepherd as the second-smartest herding dog and third-smartest dog overall. The breed was bred for its intelligence (the AKC says they can learn a new command on the first try), focus, obedience (which makes training easy), and protective instinct towards its "pack" members.

4. Golden retriever

Dog intelligence goes beyond brainpower. Golden retrievers are fourth because they "comply with commands or tasks asked of them by their owners," according to Cline. These dogs are consistent because they want to please their owners. They're used in search-and-rescue due to their agility and power.

5. Doberman pinscher

The AKC-described fearless, loyal, and alert Doberman pinscher was bred by a German tax collector who had time and motivation to breed the perfect canine bodyguard. Because tax collectors can make people very irritable.

6. Shetland sheepdog

Shetland sheepdogs work like larger herding dogs but eat less. That's why they're called "collie's little cousin." Shetland Island farmers herded more than sheep with them. Shelties herded ponies and chickens.

7. Labrador retriever

The Labrador retriever is a descendant of the St. John Dog and the Newfoundland, developed by 16th-century Newfoundland settlers. In the 19th century, English nobles brought back the "Labrador dog" from Canada.

8. Papillon

The papillon, named after the French word for "butterfly" and its winglike ears, was a companion for nobility. The AKC says they are miniaturised European spaniels bred with toy dogs. These little guys are natural companions due to their outgoing personality, eagerness to please, and ability to learn and follow commands.
