What dog breed is the smartest?
>>
>>2037865
beagle
>>
>>2037865
Usually the top few mentioned are border collie, poodle, German shepherd, golden retriever.
>>
>>2037873
>humans are biased to see mesaticephalic generalists as more intelligent even when they're not
>>
>>2037875
Sure but some arbitrary metric to scale intelligence has to be applied.
>>
>>2037878
lol

so we should go with skull shape even though we know it has nothing to do with intelligence?

>he looks really smart
>well then he must be really smart
>>
>>2037865
Wolves
>>
>>2037888
what is the closest dog breed to wolves?
>>
>>2037882
The metric for dog intelligence is just how fast they pick up commands for most people.
Or how they go through puzzles and shit thought up by bored biologists.
>>
>>2037893
yep.

scientific studies on the subject haven't found any differences in breed intelligence that can't be associated with size and athleticism.

so according to science there is no smartest breed, they're all the same.

This doesn't stop people from thinking the medium and large mesocephalic breeds are smarter.

>>2037890
Probably wolves. Or that half shep half wolf breed. Loyal but will fuck someone's shit up if they come in your house.
>>
>>2037897
is this real? can you actually train wolves?
>>
>>2037899

>>2037897
The breeds aren't half wolf at all anymore, man. They're just dogs who look like wolves.
>>
>>2037902
You can still get them. There are people who breed them with "domesticated" wolves
>>
>>2037865
Why would you want the smartest dog? It will fuck your shit up if you are new and you are new.
>>
>>2037936
I want it to be reliable on itself and knows what to do in many situations. Like its almost not an animal
