Biologist-a behaviorist Frans de Waal argues that people tend to judge animals through the prism of their own ideas about intelligence, and therefore often mistaken. He’s absolutely right — it is so simple way to estimate the intellectual level of the breed of dog does not exist. This problem was solved in 1990 year, the psychologist Stanley Coren, spending a large-scale study of almost all breeds. In the first category, the researcher identified dogs with excellent learning abilities: they understand the command in less than 5 repetitions, and the execution of the command the first time it is possible in 95% of cases.

The border collie
