All dog lovers love all dogs, even the dumb ones… or – especially the dumb ones. What is cuter than a little furry dummy looking at you with his confused little eyes or grinning at you? Doesn’t it simply make your entire day better? Although, all dogs are loveable in their own way, there are some dogs that are considered to be… well… a little less intelligent than others. Jokes on the side, there really are tests based on which a dog’s intelligence can be assessed (behavior around other dogs, trainability, basic awareness, etc). Not all the dogs from a certain breed are the same, but in general, these are the 15 dumbest dog breeds out there (don’t stop loving them just because they lack something in the brain department…).
1. The Pekingese
This cute little lap dog that has become an attraction all around the world is actually one of the dumbest breeds. They are great pets if you want to have a beautiful-looking dog and if you’re ready to go to great lengths to train and maintain them.
They are very loyal and fond of their humans, but they’re not too bright. The Pekingese is not easy to train and he doesn’t interact well or complete tasks you set him to do. This breed usually barks at everyone and has very high self-esteem. If they are left alone for a long time, they can experience separation anxiety and become destructive and even hurt themselves by accident. If you’re ready to accept the Pekingese the way he/she is, you’ll have to make some adjustments, but it can give you as much love as any other breed.
