"The top ten spots go to the “brightest dog breeds,” the ones that “understand new commands very quickly” and “obey their owner’s first command 95% of the time or better.” This category includes the Border Collie, Poodle, German Shepherd Dog, Golden Retriever, Doberman Pinscher, Sheltie, Labrador Retriever, Papillon, Rottweiler and Australian Cattle Dog. These “brightest breeds” are supposed to learn easily, even with inexperienced or incompetent trainers" (Dr. Marie Nitzschner, 2019).
