All believe they are the smartest dog, but the truth is that some pooches are more academic than others.
Here are some of the smartest dogs out there and why.
Do not worry if your puppy is not listed here. That does not mean he or she is a stupid, stupid. Dogs, like humans, are all different and varied, this is just a general overview. The problem with a clever pooch is they need constant stimulation. Dog's are not very good at watching TV or smoking they need something to occupy their thoughts.
Anyway here are the top five in random order.
5. Australian Cattle Dog
