Some dogs are simply a cute face and a friend to snuggle with, but others have beauty and brains. Professor Stanley Coren ranked the 10 most intelligent dog breeds. The rankings are based on the breeds that respond appropriately to new commands after fewer than 5 repetitions, and obey those commands the first time 95% of the time. Starting with number 10- The Australian Cattle Dog. Number 9-Border Collie (I thought they would be higher up in the standings). Number 8-Doberman Pinscher. Number 7-German Shepherd Dog. Number 6-Golden Retriever. Number 5- Labrador Retriever. Number 4- Papillon ( Another surprise for me). Number 3-Poodle ( The Poodle, German Shepherd Dog, and Border Collie are thought to be as smart as the average 2 1/2 year old child). Number 2- Rottweiler. And the number 1 spot is the Shetland Sheepdog.
