This is from "The Intelligence of Dogs", Stanley Coren, Free Press. 100 dog obedience judges rated breeds of dogs for overall working and obedience intelligence. Translation: what a dog can learn to do to make his or her owner happy. Stanley Coren concludes, "Pick a dog on the basis of your lifestyle. A border collie is an absolutely terrible dog for a working person. If you have a (smart) dog…you have to spend time with him."
