Which Dog Breed Has Highest IQ?
1. Border collie
The border collie is the smartest canine breed known to man, according The Intelligence of Dogs, which assesses 131 dog breeds based on their relative intelligence.

3. German shepherd
According to the Akc ranking, the German shepherd is the second smartest herding dog and the third smartest dog overall.
4. Golden retriever
Canine intelligence is more than simply mental acuity. The willingness of golden retrievers to carry out instructions or activities given to them by their owners
5. Doberman pinscher
The fiercely athletic, tough-looking creatures are "known for their fearless nature, speed, and deep stamina," and make excellent guard dogs, according to Coren.
6. Shetland sheepdog
Shetland sheepdog performs all the functions of a larger herding dog while consuming far less food. They were specifically bred as "the collie's little cousin" for this reason.
7. Labrador retriever
The Labrador retriever's breed features (such its water-repellent coat) were further refined once it arrived in England so it would be skilled at recovering ducks during hunts.
The papillon, whose name is a play on the term "butterfly" in French and a reference to its wing-like ears, was once a pet for nobles.
According to Coren and the AKC, the strong, hardy, and muscular rottweiler is also renowned for being incredibly affectionate and devoted.
10. Miniature schnauzer
The Schnauzer Collective ranks this adorable bearded dog, the smallest of the three schnauzer varieties, 12th among the most intelligent dog breeds.
