Dog Smarts:Â Do you have a smart dog?Â I ran across this thought provoking article online the other day and thought I would share it with you.
There is no debating that a dog has varied levels of intelligence.Â It depends on his breeding (genetics), his environment, social interaction and its owner – especially in the early stages of a puppy’s life.
It also lists its idea of the top 10 smart dog breeds and the 10 not-so smart dog breeds.Â I agree with some of the smartest breeds listed and disagree with all of the not-so smart breeds.Â I just have a hard time qualifying a dog as not so smart based on breed as the only criteria.
Remember that most dog breeds were bred for specific tasks.Â How can that make a breed not so smart?Â In my opinion, it can’t.
