If you want to have a really intelligent dog then you should own a famous Border Collie. This is a highly intelligent breed, who can master any trick and any command as long as you can invest enough time and energy into training.
This breed was specifically developed to gather and control sheep in the hills between Scotland and England. This is a hard-working dog who thrives when there is a job to be done.
They can become easily bored, and 20-minutes long walks a day, won’t be enough. They will demand long walks, exercise time, and well-structured training to remain happy and tired.
The best way to keep this dog physically and mentally happy is to keep him busy.
