“As faithful as a dog” is an English saying that has been around for years but a dog really is man’s best friend.
Whether it’s playing with you as a child, to comforting you when you are sad. Whether it’s keeping you company when you are lonely or protecting you when harm comes your way, your dog does it all with no complaints.
For that reason, everyone who owns a dog will boast of having the best one around. The cutest and smartest but when it comes to the latter, there are studies that show some dogs are just smarter than others.
So here’s a list of the top fifteen smartest dogs.
1. German Shepherds
This is one of the most popular dog breeds. They are brave and very intelligent. They don’t mind working hard and are very strong as well.
They are very curious by nature in addition to having high emotional intelligence.
German Shepherds are often trained to do a variety of tasks and the time invested in training them is often worth it because they end up excelling in everything they are trained to do. These dogs can be trained to help the handicapped, they help in search and rescue operations, they even help police officers in drug detection and related operations and the military in general.
