30 dogs with the highest intelligence (according to dog breeders)

30-dogs-with-the-highest-intelligence-according-to-dog-breeders

Dogs are among the most intelligent animals on the planet. Scientists study their mental abilities, and scientific papers and books are written about them. Until now, new breeds are being bred, some of which are distinguished by highly advanced thinking.

 

Trainers named the most intelligent dog breeds

 

Of course, like people, dogs (even of the same breed) can be endowed with mental abilities differently; some are better, and others are worse.

 

However, trainers and breeders have long figured out which breeds, on average, will stand out in intelligence from their other relatives. According to researchers, we have selected the top 30 most intelligent dog breeds. Perhaps one of them will become your faithful friend and companion from the animal world for many years.

 

1. English Springer Spaniel

Another interesting breed from the list of dogs with the highest intelligence. His profession is to frighten away game under the hunter's shot.

 

The typical spaniel is friendly, well-trained, and ready to obey its owners. He is also maximally attached to his master, so that he can be recommended as a companion dog.

 

The breed was bred in the UK.

 

2. Golden Retriever

Another of the most famous types of hunting dogs is considered to be golden or golden retrievers.

 

The Golden Retriever was bred in the 19th century, and for many who are not involved in dog breeding, it remains a mystery how this sweet, immensely kind dog can be a hunting dog. But this is not unusual, as this versatile hunting dog is mainly used to bring in dead game, usually birds.

 

Since the dog must carry the prey without damaging it, it must grab it gently and carefully. Therefore, these beauties do not have any bloody inclinations and cannot be. But ingenuity and intelligence are present in total.

 

No wonder it is often used as a guide dog, rescuer, and a good companion.

 

The breed was bred in the UK.

 

3. Puli

An old breed of dog that you want to take to the barbershop. Although the "dreadlocks" even suit her.

 

But, as they say, they are greeted by clothes, but the mind escorts them. And the reason, breeders say, this breed does not hold!

 

The breed was bred in Hungary.

 

4. Doberman Pinscher

Another German breed comes from the 1890s. Due to a misunderstanding, many people consider her stupid and aggressive. Still, everything will depend on socialization and training, which will help to reveal the subtleties of the mind and quick wits.

 

In general, I would like to note that there are no “stupid” breeds of dogs; more often, this is a consequence of the stupidity of people and the wrong upbringing of a pet.

 

Remember, at least the outbred mongrels. Can someone who has encountered them at least once in their life say that this is a dog devoid of intelligence? On the contrary, he is a model of ingenuity and devotion. And dogs become biting, as you know, only from a dog's life.

 

The breed was bred in Germany.

 

5. German Shepherd

The fact that the German Shepherd should be at the top of the "smartest dogs" is evidenced by the fact that it was around this dog breed that the famous TV series "Commissioner Rex" was built.

 

And even though what is happening in the series in terms of the behavior of a cynological dog is mostly fiction, and the roles of Rex were played by more than five dogs (each was trained for specific actions), the main thing is different. Namely, the fact that the series' creators drew attention to this particular breed is not the least because of its mental abilities. It would be challenging to shoot a dog that does not want to obey commands in the frame.

 

The breed was bred in Germany.

 

6. Collie

Another dog breed is the film actor (remember the famous Lassie?). As with the shepherd dog, collies are extremely intelligent, but like many other dogs, they need to be handled, trained, allowed to run well, and cheered in every possible way.

 

Dogs of this breed are very mobile, able to understand the owner's emotions, and extremely kind.

 

The breed originated in Scotland and Northern England.

 

7. Poodle (standard or large)

The poodle can be seen from afar, and it is clear that he comes from France. But don't be fooled by its windy looks. Professional dog breeders love this extremely inquisitive breed for its learning opportunities. Dogs of this breed are easy and exciting to learn and do not require undue effort.

 

No wonder the poodle Artemon was introduced into the fairy tale by Alexei Tolstoy, "The Golden Key, or the Adventures of Pinocchio," because he gained fame as a magnificent circus capable of doing tricks that are beyond the control of almost any other breed of dog.

 

The breed was bred in France.

 

8. Dachshund

Color, muzzle, characteristic chest wheel... it is easy to determine that this dog is German. And like many "Germans," - she is smart and has a confident, strong character.

 

The breed was bred in Germany.

 

9. Bernese Mountain Dog

Another shepherd dog. Is it necessary to say that outstanding mental abilities distinguish the handsome man?

 

The breed originated in Switzerland.

 

10. Labrador Retriever

Like the Golden Retriever, the Labrador Retriever has all the same positive qualities as its relative (the breeds share the same ancestors). The specialization of a gun dog-addled mind.

 

A devoted companion who can understand you better than many people.

 

The breed originated in Canada.

11. Belgian Shepherd (Tervuren)

Combines two intelligent breeds presented in the list - a shepherd dog and a shepherd dog. Do I need to say that this guy is a born intellectual?

 

The breed was bred in Belgium.

 

12. Pomeranian

And what, what is decorative, funny, and small? Intelligence does not directly depend on the volume of the brain; it depends on the number of convolutions ...

 

The breed was bred in Germany.

 

13. Vizsla

Vizsla, another Hungarian dog on our list, is a hunting dog breed first officially mentioned in 1357. This breed's lively, soft, intelligent, and sensual nature makes them excellent companions and family pets.

 

But they cannot do without training - only mental stress can reveal this diamond's facets.

 

The breed was bred in Hungary.

 

14. Keeshond

The Keeshond, a breed native to Holland, has close ties to the German Spitz. It is also called the "German Wolfspitz."

 

The breed is larger than the Spitz but also has a highly balanced disposition and a sharp mind, so much so that it can self-learn complicated logical tricks.

 

The breed was bred in Holland.

 

15. Miniature Schnauzer

Despite the somewhat offensive nickname that became the breed's name, the miniature schnauzer can be translated as "horse gnome" With a funny look and small size, it is a severe dog, fearless, sensitive, attentive, easily trained, and devoted to the owner.

 

The breed was bred in Germany.

 

16. Australian Shepherd

A handsome man with the muzzle of a thinker. The owners note one fascinating character trait of these dogs - they are hardworking. And that's the kind of thing that's a by-product of the mind.

 

The breed was bred in the USA.

 

17. Border Collie

The Border Collie is a herding breed of dog. Like many representatives of this branch, border collies are not only able to cope well with logical tasks but also know how to unquestioningly obey human commands and work autonomously (subject to proper training) with other animals, but they are also distinguished by endurance, kindness, and courage since trained for centuries to protect the weaker from predators and outsiders.

 

The breed was bred on the border of Scotland and England.

 

18. Schipperke

Like many guard dogs (yes, this kid is used for these purposes because of such a character), the Schipperke often has to solve rather tricky and dangerous tasks to prevent strangers from entering the territory entrusted to him.

 

The breed was bred in Belgium.

 

19. Rottweiler

Despite the widespread belief that the Rottweiler is a dangerous and wayward dog that is difficult to control, this is not the case. Rottweilers have a calm and strong character and a stable psyche.

 

Perhaps people confuse aggressiveness with a certain tendency of these powerful dogs to dominate, including in communication with people. Therefore, it is essential to properly educate a dog and build a hierarchy in which the owner will be the main one; this breed, not deprived of intelligence, will execute commands with a bang!

 

The breed was bred in Germany but had roots in the Roman Empire.

 

20. Pembroke Welsh Corgi

The popularity of this cute breed is skyrocketing. Appearance, behavior, cute slovenliness... But this shepherd dog is not stupid; on the contrary, it is at the top of one of the most easily trained intellectuals among its relatives.

 

The breed originated in Wales.

 

21. Belgian Malinois

Like the Belgian Tervuren, the Malinois is intelligent.

 

The breed was bred in Belgium.

 

22. Shetland Sheepdog (Sheltie)

Her fiefdom is the Shetland Islands; her occupation is walking ponies, cattle, and flocks of sheep. Endurance is their forte, and intense brain activity allows them to achieve their goals.

 

The breed was bred in the UK.

 

23. Weimaraner

The Weimaraner is a breed of hunting dog bred in early 19th century Germany, favored by the royal family for its stunning looks, athleticism, and intelligence.

 

Once used to hunt big game such as wolves and bears, their descendants now excel in various dog sports.

 

However, being very energetic and intelligent, Weimaraners need proper training to remain calm and control their strong hunting instinct.

 

The breed was bred in Germany.

 

24. English Cocker Spaniel

Spaniel dogs have been known for at least 500 years, although the first English Cocker Spaniel breed books were registered much later, in 1874. Bred for hunting, the Cocker Spaniel soon gained popularity among other dog breeders due to its intelligence and good nature.

 

The breed was bred in the UK.

 

25. Australian Cattle Dog

The Australian Cattle Dog is an artificially bred breed in Australia, originally for driving cattle over long distances in the most challenging weather conditions of the Australian continent. And that's it!

 

The breed originated in Australia.

 

26. German Shorthaired Pointer (Kurzhaar)

The Kurzhaar is a versatile breed of hunting dog, bred in the 19th century in Germany.

 

The breed is known not only for its intelligence but also for its restless character, eccentricity, and temperament, which can be influenced by heredity, training, and level of socialization.

 

The breed was bred in Germany.

 

27. Breton Spaniel

The Breton Spaniel came to us from France or the province of Brittany (northwest of the country).

 

Dogs are energetic, so they have to go on long walks; do not forget about the warm-up for the pet's head.

 

The breed was bred in France.

 

28. Tibetan Mastiff

The Tibetan Mastiff is a large but kind dog for walking and hunting. A rare combination for herding dogs.

 

Unfortunately, such a large breed is practically not intended for living in an apartment - it needs space and constant physical activity.

 

Despite the good disposition, the dog can become highly aggressive and dangerous without proper training.

 

The breed was bred in China.

 

29. Chesapeake Bay Retriever

The Chesapeake Bay Retriever, developed in the United States in the 19th century, has historically been used for hunting, pulling fishing nets, and rescuing fishermen. This breed is known for its good disposition, intelligence, and affection for people.

 

The breed was bred in the USA.

 

30. Flat Coated Retriever

And one more retriever completes the top 30. Kindness and ingenuity, it seems, are in their blood!

 

The breed was bred in the UK.

can-your-pet-catch-coronavirus-heres-what-experts-say

Can your beloved cat or dog give you coronavirus?


Experts agree, almost definitely not.


Hong Kong's Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) said that samples from the dog's nasal and oral cavities had tested "weak positive" for novel coronavirus. It was believed to be the first time that a dog anywhere in the world tested positive for the virus.


The dog - which had no symptoms - was put into quarantine and will be repeatedly tested until the result comes back negative, according to the statement. The department "strongly advises" that pets of people infected with coronavirus are quarantined for 14 days.



Despite this, the AFCD and the World Health Organization both agree there is no evidence that pets such as cats or dogs can be infected with coronavirus.


That's because while dogs can test positive for the virus, it doesn't necessarily mean they have been infected.


Is it worth quarantining pets?


According to Gray, who was working in Hong Kong during SARS, there is still value in quarantining pets from a scientific perspective, because it allows scientists to observe how an animal relates to a disease we still know relatively little about.


"Whilst it seems a bit scary, it's purely a precautionary measure, and it's certainly nothing for pet owners in general to be concerned about," said Gray.


Some pet owners in mainland China have been fitting their dogs with tiny face masks, but Gray said there is no benefit to that -- in fact, it's probably fairly distressing for the pet and could cause them to panic.



Instead, pet owners should stick to the basics: good hygiene.


Both WHO and Gray said owners should wash their hands with soap and water after touching pets.

"I am certainly not in any concern of my dog or cats, I'm far more concerned about myself catching it from a human being that has the disease," said Gray, who is a pet owner herself.

a-bus-driver-picked-up-2-lost-dogs-and-gets-them-home-in-time-for-christmas

Two lost dogs forgot their way home, but a Milwaukee driver brought them home in time for Christmas.

Nearing the end of her shift on Dec. 18, Milwaukee driver Jamie Grabowski saw the stray dogs running through the southern Milwaukee streets.

Grabowski stopped her bus, opened the driverโ€™s side window and guided the canines onto the bus.

The police officer carried the dogs to his squad car and then transported them to the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission(MADACC). MADACC is the only facility in Milwaukee County dedicated to taking in and caring for stray animals.

As it turns out, the pups had somehow travelled more than four kilometres away from their family home. The family had been searching for their beloved animals all night.

a-compilation-of-the-most-intelligent-animals-in-the-world

We humans are capable of learning, reasoning, and problem solving. We are aware of ourselves and also aware of the presence, thoughts and feelings of others. We make tools and practice the art of deception. We are creative. We think abstractly. We have a language and we use it to express complex ideas. All these are, perhaps, signs of intelligence. Scientists may disagree with the best and most comprehensive definition of intelligence, but in general they agree that humans are highly intelligent.


Other fauna also show signs of intelligence, and some scientists may say that defining animal and human intelligence is just a matter of degree - a question that was realized in 2005 when London Zoo placed "Homo sapiens". in the exhibition pictured here. Click forward to learn about nine other species that stand out for their intelligence.



Chimpanzees are almost the same as us

If we humans have intelligence, then chimpanzees must also have intelligence: our genomes are at least 98 percent identical. Chimpanzees make and use tools, hunt in organized groups and engage in violent acts. Wild troops have excellent behavior and customs. Field observations and laboratory experiments show that chimpanzees are capable of empathy, altruism, and self-awareness. In the experiment pictured here, chimpanzees performed better on a numerical memory test than humans.




Dolphins get creative

This Australian dolphin uses a sponge to protect its muzzle while feeding on the seabed, a tool-using behavior that is passed from mother to daughter. Scientists say this is just one sign of dolphin intelligence. Other signs include distinct whistles and clicks, which may serve as dolphin names, possibly used in some sort of language. A famous experiment from the 1960s showed that a pair of dolphins immersed themselves in the creative process when they realized that their new behavior was rewarded by the fish. Frustrated human subjects simply breathed a sigh of relief when they grasped the idea.




Elephants show self-awareness

The sheer size of their brains suggests that elephants need to know a thing or two about lifestyle. They have been observed to comfort family members, help other species during difficult times, play in the water, and communicate with each other through vibrations felt in their feet. According to some researchers, the main achievement was that an Asian elephant named Happy recognized herself in the mirror. Complex behavior is typical only for humans, great apes and dolphins.




Cephalopods have large brains

Are octopuses, squids and cuttlefish smart? It's a matter of scientific intrigue, but these cephalopods are certainly some of the smartest invertebrates in the sea. The brain of cephalopods surrounds the esophagus, but shares common complexity with the human brain, such as folded lobes and separate areas for processing visual and tactile information. The debate about how smart revolves around deciphering observations that these creatures have a seemingly irresistible curiosity, disregard for boredom, the ability to learn, and the ability to use tools. The octopus pictured here controls the muscles to eat.




Crows get crafty

Crows are crafty creatures: they forge tools from branches, feathers and other debris to catch food in hard-to-reach places. The crow named Betty, pictured here, uses a straight wire that it has bent into a hook to pull food out of the tube. Birds are born with the ethics of tool making, but they hone their craft by overseeing their elders, a sign of higher intelligence. Crows, a species of crow, have been shown to manipulate the results of their social interactions for added protection and more food.




Squirrels can be deceptive

Is the squirrel pictured here plotting a deception? Maybe. Researchers recently reported that rodents put on sophisticated shows of deceptive caching to thwart potential thieves. The behavior intensified in a laboratory experiment after squirrels watched people steal their peanuts. The researchers called the finding a sign that proteins can interpret the intentions of other people, although this may simply be a manifestation of learned behavior. Other studies have shown that animals make 3D maps to remember where they store their nuts. And squirrels in California will cover their fur with the scent of rattlesnakes to hide their scent from predators.




Man's best friend

Are dogs smart or really good at basic obedience? For example, they can learn to sit, lie down, and bring things, but can they read their master's intentions? Research shows that they can at least find food in response to non-verbal cues, a type of understanding that scientists believe may be akin to a person's ability to understand.
