Top 10 Smartest Dog Breeds

10 Jun 2016 | by Abhinav unot | Posted in: Wag News

Dogs are known to save lives, help people out of depression, sense danger and be loyal to their humans no matter what. All these traits are difficult to find in humans let alone in any other mammal. Dogs then must have some extra-terrestrial intelligence that has not been granted to us. A dog’s intelligence depends on his human as well but some are better at doing things than other breeds. So, let us look at the most intelligent of the dog breeds.

10. Husky

This energetic Breed traces its origin to Siberia where the 'Chukchi' tribe trained to sledge humans and cargo long distances in snow. That doesn't just require strength and stamina but also mindblowing intelligence.

9. St. Bernard


The large breed of the St. Bernard dog is from the Swiss Alps and was originally bred as a rescue dog. The breed we know today is quite different to the original breed as it is much larger in size and stature. St. Bernard are famous all over for having made some colossus rescues in the snowy mountains of the Alps.

6. Rottweiler


Another intelligent work dog that makes the cut is this cute fella above from the 'Rottweiler' breed. Don't be fooled by his cute face because when he opens his jaw; the canine's teeth are a fearsome sight to behold. They were developed in Germany to pull carts and protect the herd.

1. Border Collie


What happens when you develop a dog especially for obedience and intelligence? The answer is 'the Border Collie'.

They were originally developed to be herd dogs and are still employed in that role but they have grown to become the most intelligent domestic breed of dogs.
