If you read the previous post, you’ll know that some dog breeds are exceptionally clever. If you’re looking for a dog to walk the blind, guard your house, or even herd your cattle, you now which breed to go for. But if you’re looking for a lap dog to sit and lick you all day, intelligence doesn’t really need to come into it. Here’s a list of the dogs that are the least likely to guard your house – or sit, or fetch, or lay. Move over Bordie Collie! This one’s for the least intelligent dog breeds (but just because they might come up a little short in the smart department, doesn’t make them any less loveable!)
The Afgham Hound is one of the oldest breeds of dogs known today but they also happen to be one of the hardest breeds of dog to train. This isn’t down to authority though – they don’t want to be the leader and “rule the roost” – they just don’t really want to listen to you! But it has been said what they might lack in intelligence is made up for in personality/
4. The Chow Chow
The Chow Chow’s personality is very similar to that of a cat. They are very strong willed and quite often demand attention so their owners need to be even more strong willed! These dogs aren’t silly though, they are very dominant and can easily take charge of their owner if the owner isn’t assertive enough. They are of course on this list because the nature and personality of these dogs make them near impossible to train. But what they lack in training, they make up for in snuggling. Just check out their coat!
If you are more of a “cat person” but your partner is more of a “dog person”, then the Borzoi could be the perfect pet! This breed of dog is extremely cat-like. They are very independent and free-thinking. Although they are not the most popular dog, they are very loyal dogs and can bring a lot of affection to your life. The only problem is these dogs are generally more concerened about themselves, which means they can be very hard to train!
