I really want a poodle, but I'm not sure I want a dog THAT smart. Ivy and Emily are very content with the way things are. And Teddy has self-trained himself to be that way!

I know plenty of people who would disagree with #7. I wonder how they came up with those findings?

As for the GSD being at #3, they obviously haven't met mine. :D Highly intelligent? yes but we're talking about a dog who got laughed out of police dog academy because no one could train her to attack anything. As for being a guard dog, when anyone comes to the door, she just lays on the couch looking at them. :D

I had to laugh at this statement about the Border Collie:

Also, because of their background as herding dogs, they may be frustrated by small children, as their inability to herd the children as they deem fit is confounded.
So now you know what to do. If you can't get the kids to answer to the commands come, sit & stay, get a Border Collie to do it for you. :rolleyes:

I'll agree with the #1 spot, but #2? noway!!! and i don't think labs should be in the spot they put them, nope.
Poodles are probably the smartest dogs I have ever known. You can see the wheels turning in their little curly heads, If your only experience is with a poorly bred toy, you have not had the full poodle experience. I think they are smarter than most first graders.
