Top 10 Dumbest Dog Breeds

Is Your Dog on the Dumb List?

If your dog is one of these breeds, don’t get mad at me! Instead, console yourself with one of the following points:

1. Maybe your dog is different

Even dogs of the same breed can have widely varying abilities. Maybe your dog is the exception that proves the rule. Or maybe you’re just a little biased �" no one can blame you for that.

2. IQ tests for dogs are questionable at best, meaningless at worst

Tests used to quantify dog intelligence must answer two questions: a) exactly what is intelligence, and b) how do you measure it in an animal who can’t speak? You won’t find two experts who give the same answer to either of these questions. Many tests equate intelligence with trainability, but a lot of people (terrier lovers in particular) would strongly disagree with that

3. It doesn’t matter anyway

Intelligence is just one trait in dogs. For most people, it’s not the most important one. For some, it’s not important at all. After all, dumb dogs can be just as cute, funny, and lovable as smart ones. If your dog is all those qualities, honestly, who cares if he’s dumber than dirt?

The Top Ten

1 English Bulldog English Bulldog


I LOVE THESE DOGS but my cousins one just looks at me dumbfounded when I say sit. Even though she knows how to do it

If I weren't an Ole Miss fan I would be upset about this

Believe me I love English Bulldogs, but they aren't the brightest. - gabgriffinfcs

2 Basset Hound Basset Hound The Basset Hound is a short-legged breed of dog of the hound family, as well as one of six recognized Basset breeds in France.

My Basset Hound is a service dog and knows over 20 tricks when she was trained at 6 years old,just saying.

I know a friend who has one, they fit the phrase, "they are so ugly, they are cute". They are definitely stubborn because they don't like following simple commands, which makes them seem obnoxious and dumb. Although, they are friendly and always wanting attention. So, they probably need extensive training.

These dogs aren't dumb, they're just stubborn. Basset Hounds are actually just as smart as the average dog.

My aunt has one named Layla and she is dumb. But I love her anyway

They're not dumb, they're just independent.

4 Afghan Hound Afghan Hound The Afghan Hound is a hound that is distinguished by its thick, fine, silky coat and its tail with a ring curl at the end.

Afghan hounds are as dumb as a starfish because it is the way they look and now I can tell they are quite dumb.

7 Chihuahua Chihuahua The Chihuahua is the smallest breed of dog and is named for the state of Chihuahua in Mexico. Chihuahuas come in a wide variety of sizes, head shapes, colors, and coat lengths.

I hate these little RATS! They shake while they bark and they bark because they couldn't even bite through your cotton pants if it tried to bit you, so it tries to intimidate the world by being an overgrown pain in the a$$.

This is the dumbest dog I have ever seen, some even get themselves torn apart by bigger dogs like pit bulls because they were stupid enough to mess with something like that.

Dumbass ugly with no brain except to threaten 1000 times superior dogs

Origin of chihuahua: rat and dog have a baby the end.

Ugliest thing I ever seen it's not a dog to me it's an oversized rat that somehow barks

8 Mastiff
9 Lhasa Apso Lhasa Apso The Lhasa Apso is a non-sporting dog breed originating in Tibet. It was bred as an interior sentinel in the Buddhist monasteries, to alert the monks to any intruders who entered.

These dogs are yappy, dumb, children hating tyrants!

10 Beagle Beagle The Beagle is a breed of small-sized hound, similar in appearance to the much larger foxhound. The Beagle is a scent hound, developed primarily for hunting hare.

They have the brain of a peanut!

I have a beagle named Georgia. She is very friendly but is hyper and a sneaky dog. She loves animals- dogs and cats but doesn't listen even though she was trained to sit, come, give paw, and play frisbee. Beagles are noisy and howl. I love my beagle lots but she is very annoying and misbehaving. Don't get a beagle unless you know information. Beagles are lovable and friendly but loud and obnoxious.

There one of the top 10 stupidest dogs of all time.

I love my beagle more than anything but he is like a toddler and gets into everything. He also can't be left alone for more than a few hour or he becomes a nervous wreck and begins pacing and howling. He is so sweet but so needy at the same time.

The Contenders

11 Vizsla Vizsla

Vizlas are GREAT family dogs and love long walks!
They are very easy to train and are great hunting dogs (as they originate from moose hunting dogs)

Very dumb, these dogs can't be trained, they jump, run bark constantly like they are on crack cocaine! Not good as house dogs. They need room to run off all that energy. Don't expect to train them to hunt, much to dumb for that, they don't know a bird from a turtle! Dumb, dumb dumb!

The Vizsla at this property is nice but really dumb. He runs around like crazy barking at the thunder, he stands still in front of the car coming up the driveway and rolls on his back in the gravel.

They literally are knuckleheads.
