Vetstreet.com: 5 Smartest Dog Breeds

1 of 6

No. 5: Golden Retriever

The gentle Golden Retriever is a people pleaser, to be sure, but this sweet face has a big brain behind it. Originally developed to hunt, today's Goldens are fiercely devoted family dogs who need plenty of exercise in order to keep destructive tendencies at bay. Like the other smarties on this list, he's a good choice for activities that utilize his mind and body, so go ahead and sign him up for that dock diving or fly dog competition. As long as you're willing to put in the work to teach him, he'll do the rest.
