There’s an article on Pet 360 but nowhere do I see a Chowberger listed.  In case you don’t know what a Chowberger is it’s part chow, some leonberger, with a twist of retriever. That’s me, of course.  While the post may be interesting I cannot verify the accuracy because if I’m not on there who knows what else they left out. Woof! -Kensy, The Dog


Sure your dog’s clever … but is she one of the smartest dog breeds out there? “While all dogs are smart, certain breeds are more intelligent at specific tasks than others,” said Lisa Peterson, spokesperson with the American Kennel Club.

Now we know every dog is different, and mixed-breeds are some of the smartest, so we want to mention them up front. If you have a mixed breed (or any breed!) that’s great at a certain task, we’d love to hear about it in the comments.

Meanwhile we asked the AKC to help us list 10 dog breeds that excel in intelligence, especially when it comes to the job they do.

    You’re going to get some hints on assisting that specific type of cat
    to shed pounds. You can view the exotic wildlife and watch birds
    in thus national park. Nonetheless, from cats’ mindset, a new plate may cause unease, or simply distress.

Got something to say?
