The 10 Smartest, Most Intelligent, And Easiest Dogs To Train
An easily trainable sporting dog, retrievers are alert and gentle. It is the most popular breed of dog in the world, and retrievers are incredibly popular as assistance dogs or as therapy dog due to their loving nature and their calm demeanor. One outstanding example of their suitability for assistance work was a dog named Endal, who was named as Dog of the Millennium by Dogs Today magazine due to his work with a man named Allen Parton. Parton's disabilities were so great that Endal had to learn commands and signals far beyond most service dogs, including learning how to use an ATM and learning how to treat his owner when he would fall unconscious in the bath, including pulling the drain plug, moving his owner, and going for help.
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.
