Dogs as Smart as 2-Year-Old Kids 

Dogs are as smart as 2 year old children, according to canine expert Stanley Coren. Coren has studied dog intelligence extensively, and ranks Border Collies, Poodles, and German Sheperds among the smartest.

We also love the beagle, which made it to the top 10 list of most popular dog breeds in 2008 by the American Kennel Club. That’s because they are so sweet and socialable, Coren said. “Sometimes people love the dumb blonde”.
