We all hope and dream to have some control in our lives but the truth is we don’t have much at all. No control over our over-bearing mothers, our nagging partners, our busy friends and the unstable job market! Ahh! All I want is my dog to listen to me! Is that too much too ask? No. It’s actually not. Here are the 8 most trainable dog breeds:
- Golden Retrievers
Golden Retrievers are the golden dogs of America. They’re pretty much perfect all around. They’re lovable, personable and they will listen when you say, “NO!”
- Australian Shepherds
These are herding dogs so of course they’re obedient. They’ll work for you if you live on a ranch—for free too! My dog won’t even bark when my sister literally assaults me.
- German Shepherds
If you can train this dog to become a cop, then you can train them to do anything. Many of these dogs receive medals for going to war, attacking dangerous criminals and rescuing injured civilians.
You may think poodles march to their own fluffy drums, but they don’t. They march to your drum. They’re smart so don’t mess with them. They’ll know what’s up.
- Border Collie
Apparently this dog needs to work in order to survive. I wish I had a little of that work ethic instilled in me.
- Labrador Retrievers
The word retriever is in their breed name. As in, retrieve me another beer please.
- Doberman Pinscher
I personally would be terrified to train this dog but if you’ve got the guts then go for it. They’ll be eating dog food out of the palm of your hand in no time.
- Miniature Schnauzer
They’re obedient but they will talk back. That’s why they’re at the bottom of our list. At least they’re cute though.
