Dogs that Make Training as Easy as 1,2,3
Adding a dog to your household brings joy and happiness into your life; however, it also brings a whole new set of responsibilities. You must be willing to devote the time and have the patience needed to train your four-legged family member.
We asked dog trainer, Laurie C. Williams, owner of Pup 'N' Iron, for feedback on categorizing dogs as "easier to train." Her experience is that "dogs that have been bred for work that require specifically following man's direction tend to be among the most 'trainable' dogs."
Williams feels that dogs such as the Border Collie or German Shepherd, who are bred to hunt alongside man, will also follow their own instinct and impulses. Some breeds, she says, are strictly bred for companionship and can be more challenging to train. This does not mean the dogs are less intelligent, but rather, they are smart enough to know they can get away with anything just by being cute.
With that, here are the top 10 easiest dog breeds to train.
