Default Best Breed for Competitive Obedience?

Obviously there is no "best" breed of competitive obedience. However what dog commonly does the best in it?

This is just a hunch but Poodles probley or Goldens there was a survey done awhile ago on tv and they were rated among the highest in intellegence. So im assuming if trained well they would excel in competitive obedience.

I've seen a lot of border collies, and labs in those comps on tv. I think sunny would excel so aussies would make my list but I bet there is a site somewhere that would say. I will have to look into that. .

Not coming up with "best" but some of the list were weimeraner, border collie, aussie, lab, shelties,spaniels and westies . sorry,that doesn't narrow it down does it. The one site said almost any dog can compete and be excellent at obediance. If you are going for a spacific type like herding or hunting the obvious choices are borders and labs respectively. Sorry not much help.

I bet they would do awesome, just like labs in hunting comps and other stuff too. Goldens are the BEST (next to sunny of course ... he just pouted at me )

Yes, the goldens were the # 1 in obedience...I don't know where they stand today. The MerryMac line was the 1st in the obedience hall of fame ....back in the 60s...Bubba's grandmother was of that line.

p.s. I thought you were interested in agility !? It takes the right dog, the right trainer and handler to do well in anything. You cannot pick a breed and expect top ribbons. Wouldn't you just rather have a great dog you love and who loves you and just have fun ???

Yeah I noticed it's usually the bigger dogs. They say bigger dogs have bigger brains so they are smarter. But I think my little one is very smart.
