Top 10 Dumbest Dog BreedsIs 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?
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
They look stupid and ugly, I do not know why people even own these crap dogs.
Believe me I love English Bulldogs, but they aren't the brightest.
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 Basset Hound is a service dog and knows over 20 tricks when she was trained at 6 years old,just saying.
So stupid in many levels. First off, they are so aggressive to the point where they need strong owners to handle them. And second, they cannot follow simple commands, such as learning not to attack strangers or not to poop inside houses.
They are stupid when compared with other dog breeds. Afghan hounds are dumb, too.
They're not dumb, they're just independent.
Afghan hounds are as dumb as a starfish because it is the way they look and now I can tell they are quite dumb.
Cute but dumb as a brick
They're only good for smelling, but intelligence? Pass.
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.
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
They're so dumb and look like oversized rats.
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.
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.
Beagles use people sometimes. They will ignore you but be your best friend when your eating. I'm just going by the beagles I came across.
Doesn't get it. They test and take patients, because they don't know the situation in any given situation. "Does Wayne Brady have to Djokovic?"
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!
I am convinced these dogs are as dumb as goldfish swimming in a bowl, constantly thinking the castle it sees in the middle is something new. It looks at you like it wants a clue. Scared of its own shadow. Useless..unless you need a dog to eat food for no reason and run in circles for hours on end. It can't defend your family. It can not hunt, point or track. Oh, allergic to everything.
I have one and this list is offensive to him and me! But it's true all he does is sit on my chair and look through the window. He occasionally eats cow bones
I love him but...he's kinda dumb. That doesn't mean he's a bad dog though. He's very affectionate towards my family and I.
These dogs are annoying. Yap. Yap yap yap. They have to much to say.
They look dumb and ugly as much as the Bulldog.
They suck more than Chow Chows.
Not dumb, but from what I heard, they sometimes act before thinking straight
Very stupid breed. Probably would jump down a 100-ft cliff or a flaming volcano just for a treat.
