Having a trained dog doesn’t only mean having a dog for competitions or being able to show off the tricks your pet knows to friends. Training your dog means much more than that, it means having a well-behaved dog that is easy to live with.
Sometimes, when a dog isn’t trained or it can’t be trained, it becomes a burden and an inconvenience. That’s why you should know what you’re getting into when you’re getting a new pet as there are some breeds more intelligent and have a tendency to understand commands more quickly. Here are 12 such breeds.
1. Australian cattle dog
This middle-sized dog was originally bred as a herding dog in Australia to help take the cattle from one place to another, often across rough terrain. And so, this breed needs to be involved in some work in order to be happy. This trait makes them excellent at following instructions and they like fun and challenging tasks.
Australian cattle dogs are very attached to their owners but they need an authoritative owner if they are to be obedient. Especially because their original traits involve barking, chewing, digging and nipping, which all needs to be replaced by a much more peaceful lifestyle.
