Let me preface this by saying that all dogs are perfect. They can chew on everything you own or dig up your garden, but they're still one of the best things to ever exist. Now that that's settled, we do have to say that some dog breeds have been known to be smarter than others (not that it matters).

If you're curious, however, you can rest easy as psychologist Stanley Coren has surveyed, studied, and researched the most intelligent dog breeds out there. What exactly makes for a smart dog? Well, Coren based it all on instinctive intelligence, adaptive intelligence, and obedience. From Australian cattle dogs to border collies, here are the smartest dog breeds of all time.
