These Are The Most Intelligent Dog Breeds, According To A Canine Psychologist.

#6. Shetland Sheepdog

Every dog needs to get plenty of physical exercises to ensure that they live a long, healthy life. And while Shetland Sheepdogs need physical exercise, they need mental exercise, as well. Shetland Sheepdogs enjoy doing puzzles and playing games, so make sure that you're equipped to stimulate this intelligent dog's mind!

#7. Labrador Retriever

Labrador Retrievers originally descended from the St. John's water dog. This means that Labrador retrievers are highly intelligent fishing dogs and they're still used all over the world to help with different water-based activities.

#8. Papillon

This dog may look fancy, but the Papillon is actually extremely intelligent. In fact, they're a favorite competitor for intelligence competitions, especially in the area of demonstrating how obedient they are!

#9. Rottweiler

Rottweilers are well-known for their great eyebrows, but they're also extremely intelligent! These beautiful dogs not only make great pets, but they also serve in the military and as police dogs. Because of how smart they are, trainers really enjoy working with this breed of dog.

#10. Australian Cattle Dog

Australian cattle dogs are so smart that it can be quite difficult to live with them unless you're prepared to put in the work. This type of dog requires plenty of stimulation for them to remain happy and healthy, so staying on top of their training is imperative with this breed.
