10 Least Intelligent (Just as Lovable) Dog Breeds
Although all animals, dogs included, are amazing in every way. They tend to be just as different in shape, size, personality, and even intelligence levels as human beings. Some breeds are more active, some tend to be more relaxed, and others can be a bit silly or less intelligent. Don’t get me wrong. This by no means implies that this is negative characteristic. Less intelligent pretty much applies to their ability to learn quickly, their memory, attention span, and a few other factors. So there’s no need to be offended if one of the precious dog breeds listed happen to be yours!
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
This particular dog breed isn’t exactly the smartest. However they do excel in the love and affection area. But hey, isn’t that all that matters?
This dog breed is strong, loyal, and protective however they aren’t exactly the best at learning commands, and remembering rules. So if you’re prepared to constantly repeat the same commands over and over to your pet but crave the loyalty of an old friend this breed is the one for you!
This breed is known to be an amazing hunter because of their great sense of smell. That’s a positive characteristic while other characteristics include difficulty training and adapting to new environments. Still, the beagle is a great dog to own! Plus they’re friendly!
If you’re taking the route of a Puggle (Mix between a Pug and a Beagle) fits in this non-intelligent category as well. Pugs are extremely friendly and eager to have a good time however their trainability level and ability to take commands well are questionable. Still they are the sweetest dogs you could ever have in your family.
Looking for a friendly family dog? This breed is great for you. Just a heads up though, they aren’t the most intelligent. But who cares? You’re looking for a companion not a genius right?
Looking for a loyal companion on the soft and fluffy side? This breed is just for you just so long as you don’t mind your companion being stubborn and thinking they are the boss of you. But who can resist that long healthy hair and adorable button nose?
This breed isn’t exactly the smartest one but it definitely has great qualities such as stability. And who doesn’t want their companion to be stable? Haha!
This dog can be trained just like any other one however it is a bit more difficult to do so with them. I will say however that they are amazing guard dogs and provide the ultimate protection.
This breed is one of the most beautiful breed there are. They have amazing coats, rich colored fur, and have enough fat to be the best pillow ever. One negative characteristic is that they also don’t have the easiest time learning who is in charge.
Great companions and great hunters! But like other dogs on this list they are also difficult to teach. Luckily they are still loyal and great friends to have despite this.
Although great guard dogs, affectionate, and loyal, this breed also seems to be difficult to train. They are also a bit feisty. But how cute are they?!
Overall each and every breed of dog has its positive characteristics and negative characteristics. The beautiful thing is that they are all loving and want nothing more than to be happy with a family. Who cares if they can solve a math equation or write a novel? All that matters is that they bring happiness into your home, which they are all guaranteed to do.
If you are ready to commit to a dog remember to adopt! Your local shelter is a great place to start!
