Smartest Dog in the World? What do you think?

It was only yesterday when I posted information about  animal psychics which brought up the subject of how smart are our dogs, really. Today I found this short video about a dog in Austria which the BBC is suggesting just may be the smartest dog inBorder Collies 3 the world. This is based primarily on how many human words the dog understands.Take a look at this short video and decide for yourself. I wasn’t surprised to find that is was a Border Collie, one of the most intelligent and responsive dogs anywhere.

At TopTenz.net they have a list of the 10 smartest animals in the world. The Border Collie is listed as number 7 and according to them is the smartest dog breed in the world.

See what a 3 1/2 month old Border Collie can do. This video was a pleasure to watch.

Here’s another short video of the Austrian Border Collie showing understand of a number of words.

Enjoy this 90 second video from the BBC

No matter what dog breed you have I know that if you are like me, it doesn’t matter if they are the smartest dog in the world. They are our pets and to us they are just as smart as they need to be which leads me to unconditional love and I will leave it there.

    the dog was so cute

  2. Well. I think that this Border Collie is right up there. I also think that this breed is topicality more intelligent than the majority of K-9. This is one of the hardest working dogs thriving on praise. Border Collies are represented among the leaders in competitive levels in various sports, excelling in agility skills, obedience, sheepdog trials and Frisbee.

    Great stuff Bill!
