  • When a dog is truly part of the family and is included in everything possible its intelligence becomes evident. Those of us who truly love and pay attention to our dogs understand that dogs have a full range of emotions and love us in the purest way possible.

I have a little girl westie and when I’m feeling sad or I cry she will come from the other side of the house just to comfort me. She gets up on my lap and licks my face until I quit crying…that has nothing to do with food.

    • I agree 1000 percent. How i have always treated my dogs.. Have a few friends that have dogs and they treat them like dogs, dont talk to them or anything.. they always come to my house and say man your dog is smart.. just last year my dog had liver cancer and had to put her down. I wont lie i cried like a baby. She was family and it was like loosing a family member or best human friend. She was my best friend to!!! I love dogs but have not got a new one yet.. one will come to me. My Baily was thrown out of a moving car when she was a puppy like trash. I called 911 to report and i got her from side of road and kept her. She was loved very much...take care to all and god bless.

    • As are hunting breeds in my experience. To be a good hunter you have to learn fast, apply what you've seen and experienced in the past to current situations, correctly anticipate logical outcomes, and quickly learn from your mistakes. I witnessed our freaky smart beagle mix doing things that can only be described as inferential reasoning, including as shown in the video understanding what it meant when I pointed at something. She also had a huge vocabulary and demonstrated the ability to infer meaning of strange words just by context, and learn new things that I wanted her to do but had never specifically taught her. I have now-adult children, and I always said she reminded me of a human toddler in her eagerness and ability to learn through simple, consistent, repetitive phrases, patience, and positive reinforcement. Like children, they want to please us if we just show them how. We adopted her from a shelter when she was around 18 months old, and in 2019 lost her to cancer in what was probably her 15th year. She remained a happy, active, eager, clear-headed adventure pup and loyal companion right up until the end.

    • @Lori Ruggiero Yes, they are incredibly Intelligent. But then you think about it you're leaving them with a flock of sheep for example and they take care of everything, that's pretty darn smart. I had a lady that would take every border collie or herding type of dog even if it were a mix. This helped me immensely. I hate to see any dog in a dog run but especially an intelligent dog.

  • i had a Mix Border Collie and Shiffon and he was so intelligent much like Chaser. I spent the last 9 years with Georgie and he did not much help from me to live up to his potentiaL He was brilliant with names and recognition of people and objects. He knew so many names of animals, and spent hours watching cats, cows, and enjoyed the pet stores to view all other creatures. He was full of emotion, compassion, and had feeling such as a human. I totally understand and agree that when you get a dog in your life, you should treat the dog as your child and not ignore your dogs potential for intellectual growth. I have been around people of different cultures where in other countries dogs are ignored and treated as street animals.These people do not have the respect for dogs and many people are scared of dogs. It is certainly a huge dilemma. My dog Goergie recently passed away of cancer. I would have given anything to keep him alive forever.

My cat is very very attached to me. I don't think Alex the grey parrot loved Irene. And now my bus is here -- Tengo que subirme.

  • Hearding dogs are very intelligent and they understand many words and read people and animals very well . If my blue healer didn't like someone I learned he was always right...what's more if he got on his hind legs and pushed me back away from someone I was having a conversation with it was because he knew that person was not my friend or worse . People often underestimate animals of all types they are intelligent and they seem to know how the universe works better than humans do .

  • I got an auto feeder for my Yorkie because if he can see even part of the bottom of the bowl, he won't eat. The feeder reservoir is clear. Not only does he rake his paw to dispense more (that isn't necessary he copied that straight from me!) he looks at the reservoir and if the level is too low, he alerts me loudly! That shows Logic, reasoning and spatial awareness beyond what was recently believed, as well.

  • They forgot to show the most amazing thing that Chaser did: the old doctor scattered all 1000+ dog toys around his house, and then told her to fetch a specific toy. The test was tricky because he used a new name he never taught her, and had put a new toy somewhere in the house. She went around the house, looking at the various toys, and eventually decided to pick up the new toy. She deduced that the unfamiliar word must be the name of the new toy. She's an incredible dog!

Tess NEVER DID, so we were able to let her out w/o leash. We later learned that she was going to each house across the alley to panhandle. And it WORKED. The ladies at the in-home beauty shop wld save their scraps from supper and bring them to give to Tess when she came calling. They'd pet her, then she'd work her way from house to house, until she came back home. We wondered why she kept gaining weight. Finally, a neighbor told us! 😊

  • Wow it's weird to me that "science" is coming around to study what any person who has deeply loved an animal is learning day by day by being in relationship to their animal. Yes, dogs and other animals have intelligence. Yes, there are many different kinds of intelligence. When we give our loving attentiveness and care, intelligence can blossom forth. We are really at the very tip of the iceberg in terms of taping into our innate potential in this way.

  • I had a Boxer for 11 years she knew all her toys by name. I swear not only was she smarter then some humans, she was more human, then most humans. In fact as a puppy she had a baby yellow duck, somehow the duck went missing. A couple of years later we found it in a closet, when I tested her by putting it with hundreds of her toys, and asked the question "where's the baby duck" she sprung up (obviously remembered it) and started searching, within seconds of searching her toy pile she not only finds it, but behaves with the excitement like she just found a long lost friend.

  • Stumbled across this, it was very fascinating. I am blind, and I am working with my second Guide Dog. I remember when I was in training with her, the instructors at the school said, the very same thing that our dogs are intelligent like a two or three year-old. It’s my dog’s job to keep me safe. But I don’t tell her let’s go to the bank. It is simple, straightforward commands when we’re out walking. A couple of things that I really appreciate about working with a dog : If I give her a command, and she determines that it’s not safe for us, she will intelligently disobey me to keep the team safe. This is called intelligent disobedience. The other thing that I appreciate about having a dog is that when we go places often enough, she will pattern to that place and automatically show me the door to the place whether this be a restaurant or a store that we visit frequently. Lastly, she sees obstacles as we are walking down the sidewalk and chooses how to go around them, and we just continue on smoothly.

    • Before I retired, I had a colleague who was also blind with a wonderful guide dog named Athens. I worked in Tech Support, and he was very interested in giving it a try. I volunteered immediately to show him the ropes of on-line tech service. We had all the state-of-the-art equipment. I was like Athens' Mom. He would come over to me and let me know he had to go outside. My colleague picked up the tech support queue immediately and did a fantastic job. Sadly one day I came in, and my boss called me in the office. Athens had passed in the night, and I was crushed. I cannot even imagine (although you would know) how losing a part of yourself who was always there for you would be. Months later he said he was moving to California and was going to work on another guide partner then. Turns out that all the tech he learned was very useful. He got a terrific job with a company that translated films to voice and text! I would say that they UNDER estimated the dogs intelligence (and every other non-human) big time.

    • @vigal79 Hi Vigal79. When I was about ten years old I read a book called "Follow My Leader" by James Garfield about a young boy who went blind and got a dog named "Leader" when he went to the blind school. It was a wonderful book that really made me appreciate the bond between a boy and his dog. I hope that you read that book, it was also made into a movie I think. Lots of luck and love to you and your dog!!!

  • This is so good. I feel it's something that many of us have known that have had and loved dogs, especially in the last few decades where dogs had a much more interactive in family life. It needs to be taught in vet school too. If I ever go to a vet that says, "it's just a dog".. or something like that I leave immediately and I have. Hopefully, this knowledge gets spread and we learn even more and people can stop abusing and eating dogs.

I've always known dogs are smart I've always felt whenever I see or walk by a dog or talk to a dog always feel their personality right away and their "state of being" how happy they are how thier owner treats them, I read all of this in couple seconds.... I'm always nice to people with dogs because I know when they go home so many times so many people abuse their dogs.... Just the thought of it makes me sick. So I'm kind in hopes that they could have a better day with their dog which means I'm hoping and praying there's less abuse, or moments of abuse 😬⭐👍

  • My grandfather and father were dairy farmers. My granddad’s Border collie Shep I believe essentially knew conversational English. You could say to her “Hey, Shep, go down to the end of the pasture and make sure we got them all,” and she would go and do it. She probably saved his life once: He had gone into a small paddock where he kept a bull to fill the bull’s water trough. The bull knocked him to the ground and was beginning to strike at his chest with its hooves. Shep slipped under the fence, fastened her teeth onto the bull’s tail, and held on tight until the bull decided to go after her instead. She held on, according to my grandfather’s story, and he was able to roll away and escape while the bull chased his tail. At a strategic moment, Shep let go and darted away. She lived to be 17, or so they told me; I was a child when she died.

    • @Rich Sackett Huskies are very smart even though they’re not considered to be. They’ll talk to you like a person will. My husky knew what I was going to do before I barely had the thought in my head. The only reason why they’re not considered to be smart is because they often only do what they want to do.😄 But once they respect you they’ll do what you want.

His dog walker proved to me just how smart he really was when a group of kids walked into the lobby and he told the dog to walk up to the kid with the red cap, which he did without any hesitation! Dogs should be considered sentient beings just like dolphins, apes & horses!

    • Well, to be fair, most parents are WORKING 8-12 hours a day to be able to actually feed their kids. And by the time they've advanced enough in their career that they can spend more time with the kids, the kids are too old to want to spend time with the parents. This guy has the ability to spend this sort of time with his dog, so good for him. But don't sit there and act like everyone could spend this type of time everyday with their kids. Parenting is hard enough without being armchair quarterbacked the whole time.

Then, he spends a half hour licking his ghost balls with great gusto. I guess, anything worth doing, is worth doing right.

Her dog, Lou could sense when Dianne was going to have an attack. Lou would scratch on Dianne's leg just before the seizure occurred. Dianne would lay down and Lou would lay on top of her until the epileptic seizure would end. Lou was never trained for this. Lou passed away 5 years ago. RIP Lou.

  • I have a jack russell that I’ve had since Sept of 2013 . He was 5 weeks old . I’ve always talked to him in full sentences and I don’t think he’s ever left my side . He’s always with me . If I’m going to the store I’ll say Eddie, do you wanna go to the store with me ? He will instantly jump up and be excited and when we get to the garage he waits for me to say which car or truck we are taking . So I’ll say Eddie , let’s got to the store , we’re taking the truck . He knows exactly what I’m saying . Same thing with everything else in life . He gets excited over Christmas presents and will unwrap new toys an treats on Christmas Day. If I say Eddie , you need a bath , he will go to the bathroom and sit on the rug until I start the bath water then he will jump in the tub. When he’s done I’ll lay a towel on the floor and he will roll around and dry hisself off . He sleeps in my bed , he has a small pillow that he knows is his. He gets under the covers by himself . I can go on and on about how smart he is . I’ve always treated and talked to him like a human . He’s my little buddy . And when I tell him I love him he will come give me a hug a kisses on the hand or wrist . I’ve never really give it much thought on how smart he really is . But I trust him way more than most people . Hes 9 yrs young now and he shows no signs of slowing down . He’s a really good frisbee or ball catcher . Just a wonderful companion

When I reached in and pick him up his tail was wagging like crazy . So I put him in the truck . Went to Walmart and all the stuff he needed for the time being. He’s been a good dog .

  • My dog was darn smart. I dazzled friends when I'd ask my guy, "Can you bring me Mini-Frenchie?" He'd run up the stairs to the loft and amidst 15+ toys (including a full size "Frenchie" toy near the "Mini-Frenchie" toy), he'd quickly come down and always brought the correctly named toy. We only got up to 30 or so toys, since I figured what more was needed. Probably could have gone much further easily. Also had a larger hedgehog toy, and a friend gifted us a smaller Christmas-themed smaller Hedgehog (dressed like Santa), and he quickly (like 2 minutes to learn to distinguish the two) could retrieve the correct one every time. Even over many months of never being asked to recall. "Let's play with Christmas Hedgehog!" Two years later. Here he comes! So fun! #PackerPuppyRIP

The empathy and depth of emotion that a dog shows to it's canine companion or human companion is something only loving dog owners get to experience.

But I've been checking things out for a while and one thing I do know and did b 4 I did any checking, is that there is no other animal on earth that u can train to do what u can train a dog to do. They are amazing. And the unconditional love that they give u can't be matched by any other animal or human. I would much rather spend time with my dog any day than I would with most humans.

  • Four years ago my wife and I were in Greece and driving up a mountain road on our way to see the Temple of Apollo Epicurius at Bassae and our car was “accosted” by two dogs. Driving very slowly and driving around a bend we headed into a flock of what must have been 200 sheep slowly walking down the road. Two more dogs appeared. There were no humans. These 4 “working” dogs were guiding a flock of sheep back from pasture and protecting them without direct human guidance. It was pretty remarkable to see.
