The 10 Smartest, Most Intelligent, And Easiest Dogs To Train
As demonstrated by Chaser, border collies are teachable. The herding breed is highly trainable, and is energetic and athletic, a combination of traits that make them incredible at controlling livestock, but also a handful when not at work. They are very motion-sensitive, given to chasing anything that moves in their sightline, and will try to herd anything, including children and other. They need plenty of mental and physical stimulation, and tend to act out when this is not provided, being destructive towards furniture and shredding up yards and landscaping out of boredom.
Powerful, with an intimidating appearance and an undeserved reputation for being a violent breed, all the Rottweiler really wants to do is work. They are an ancient breed, having been used as a combined herding and livestock protection dog for millennia. They are one of the more flexible breeds when it comes to training, as they are suitable for anything from a herder, to an obedience competitor, to a police dog. They are popular among cattlemen because, unlike most other herding breeds, they will physically use their body to move stubborn livestock, regardless of danger involved.
