I'd say he is very loyal, lol. that's pretty cute, lol

We tested our dogs once and timed them. They all came up with pretty good scores, but even if they didn't, so what?? I don't think these tests can really determine how intelligent a dog is. For example, one test was to put a treat under a board and the dog had to get it out. I don't see what is stupid about the dog sitting and waiting for you to get the treat FOR THEM, which many dogs do, because they realise that it's probably easier to wait for their owner to get it than for them to get it themselves.

I personally think it was a great question. interesting at the least. I love to hear people opinions. but way too many people took it way too seriously as an insult.
I think the treat under a board test is dumb because a lot of dogs are trained and behaved well enough to know that they dont GET a treat, they have their person GIVE them a treat. at most these IQ tests give a small idea of intelligence, more of an idea of how well behaved the dog is/how much it wants to please its humans.

Yeah, it was a good question, but if we did agree upon which dog was the smartest, it doesn't mean any other dog is dumb. People took it the wrong way, this meant nothing, it was just that Lea got bored and was wondering.

I would think to accuratley test a dogs intelligence that the test would have to be catered to what the breed is used for. For all over versatility I would say the GSD tops the list just because they can be used for so many different purposes compared to most breeds that are designed for one or two tasks.

I agree...Either Border Collies or GSD's. GSD's are used for a wide range of things eg: police, rescue, defence, protect, herding, a lovable dog and a great companion. These are just a few of their great quality's. But no1 back fire on this because this is my opinon. There are tonnes of smart dogs out there. Every dog is different and useful for different things. People are developing different breeds to acompany different lifestyles. I personally don't like breeding pure dogs to make another breed...> like labradoodles or shichon's. They may be great pets but i don't like purposly breeding those types of dogs. Anyway, thats my opinon and once again, dont backfire on me
