Are you searching for a loveable, intelligent dog with the character of your best friend? Is dog obedience a trait you are looking for in your pooch? If that sounds like you, then you need to check out our list of the 5 most trainable dog breeds:

  • German Shepherd
  • Border Collie 
  • Poodle 
  • Golden Retriever
  • Doberman Pinscher 

1). German Shepherd 

There is a reason why the police, the army, and even special forces use German Shepherds as their dog of choice. They are versatile and easy to train.  Whether you want a guide dog, a sniffer dog, a herding dog or any type of a guard dog, you can train a German Shepherd to perform seemingly any task. Their unwavering loyalty, smarts, firmness, and steadiness in temperament make them easy to train.

2). Border Collie

A Border Collies is a working dog with incredible instincts and intelligence. This premier herding dog is easy to train. Some research shows that it can understand commands in as little as five repetitions. While they are at home running in the herding fields, their intelligence and smarts make the perfect dog for families looking for easy to train and obedient dogs to raise as pets.

3). Poodle

While the Border Collie has built a name for being intelligent, the poodle is renowned for its obedience. Poodles excel in obedience and agility. As such, their nature lends them to training and being family pets. Once bred to retrieve items from water and hunt for truffle, they are now some of the most trainable dogs we breed as pets.

4). Golden Retriever

With excellent social skills and plenty of obedience to boot, Golden retrievers are easy to train. While they lack some real-world intellect present in Border Collies, they are good breeds of dogs to have around as pets in a domestic setting.

5). Doberman Pinscher

Developed by Dobermann, this dog breed was bred to function as a guard dog and a companion. As such, it has the smarts, intellect, and loyalty requisite for ease of training. You can train a Doberman to obey a  wide variety of commands with relative ease.

Other dogs that are excellent at learning commands and following them include Australian Shepherds, Labrador Retrievers, Rottweilers, and Papillons. While these do not make it to the list of the five most trainable dogs, they are still an excellent option to consider if the dog in the list above does not meet your needs.

Final Thoughts

There is a wide variety of dog breeds to choose from when you are looking for a pet. However, not all dogs are the same. Some have more smarts than others. Selecting any of the dog breeds above will help to make it easier for you to train your pet.
