I’ve noticed with the Sporting Breeds, the better instincts they naturally have for their Sport —the dumber they are in everyother respect.

Hubby reports that Brat Puppy is becoming a dream of field dog. He still can’t figure out to get off the bed when the rest of the dogs do when we come to bed. It’s a ritual. We start messing with the covers, the dogs get off, wait, then when we have settled, they get back on and resettle themselves. Brat Puppy now 1.5 years just gives us a blank look when we tell him to GO. Other dogs are sitting on the sidelines waiting to be called back up.

Working dogs seem to be the smartest. Sport dogs like standard poodles are quite smart, poodles rate near the top consistently.
