No. 5: Golden RetrieverGolden Retriever 5

Gentle Character

A true friend to everyone, but this sweet dog has a big brain. Originally bred for hunting, Golden Retrievers today are dedicated family dogs that require a lot of training to function as hunting dogs. Like the other "smart dogs" on this list, it is a breed that is highly suitable for both physical and mental activities. If you're looking for an active dog for activities like Dock Diving or Flyball, then the Golden Retriever is an excellent choice. Provide enough exercise and challenges for your dog, and he will do the rest.

The Australian Shepherd is a devoted dog. The Australian Shepherd seeks attention by leaning on your leg, lying at your feet, or crawling onto your lap (keep in mind that he can weigh up to 35kg). However, the Australian Shepherd is not just a lapdog; it is an absolute mastermind that excels when challenged. Sharpen your Australian Shepherd by training him in obedience, agility, or other active sports.

No. 3: PoodlePoedel 3

No Prejudices

Don't judge the Poodle by its beautiful coat or cute face. This dog has beauty and brains, combined with a good sense of humor. Poodles are absolutely not prudish; they are active dogs that are eager to learn and listen well to their owner. Poodles are fantastic choices for agility and obedience competitions. Keep in mind that a Poodle requires relatively high maintenance to keep its coat in optimal condition.

No. 2: German Shepherd Dog

The German Shepherd is a dog that adapts easily. It is also a natural protector who knows no fear, making it excellent for military and police work. Even if you are not a policeman or a soldier, this dog is still a loyal companion bursting with energy. He loves spending time with his 'pack,' especially if that time is spent playing, running, walking, working, or doing anything else that demands a lot of energy.

No. 1: Border Collie

Hard Worker            Border Collie 1

The Border Collie is known as an intense, hardworking, highly energetic dog that is world-famous for being able to impose its will on a flock of sheep. In fact, it is so good that it can also influence you. It has an amazing focus, but if you don't put it to work, that focus can become a problem.
