Why do dogs make such good assistance and service animals?
This video may explain why. Enjoy!
Looking at dog intelligence from another angle, here is an on-line quiz you can try with your dog to find out how smart s/he is! Remember we have to look at what each task actually tests to find out how good of an indicator it may be for our dog. We have included the test here as it offers more simple things to do to help improve your dog's intelligence and adaptability.
We have the "Intelligence of Dogs" book by Stanley Coren you can borrow if you want to do the rest of the test.
