What's Your Dog's Type Of Intelligence?

Is your dog an Einstein? Or is the concept of "fetch" something your pup hasn't really been able to grasp ("Why would I bring the toy back to you? Silly human.") Each of our dogs have different types of intelligence. What's yours?

Pick a famous fictional character with a similar intelligence level to your pup:

Puppy Einstein

Puppy Einstein

If your pup was a person we'd call them "book smart". They learn quickly and are able to master all sorts of feats (like figuring out which chairs are the perfect height to reach the kitchen table!).

Space Cadet

Space Cadet

Space Cadet definitely does not mean dumb! It can be hard for your pup to focus, but he/she is super eager to please and loves learning new things. Your dog is easily entertained and doesn't mind playing the same games until they tucker themselves out.

Social Savvy

Social Savvy

Your dog has an innate sense of social intelligence. Dogs are pack animals, and yours exploits that natural instinct to a T. He/she is probably the leader of the pack at the dog park!

Virtuoso

Virtuoso

Your dog is good at EVERYTHING. It's easy for your pup to pick up complicated tricks, figure out that you didn't really throw the ball, and to open the screen door. However, he or she is also smart enough to know where their food comes from, so they tend to keep the naughty behavior to a minimum.

Yoda

Your dog is one thoughtful pup. Sometimes it can take him or her a while to figure out exactly what you want them to do, but this is only because they're thinking it through. They want to understand the "why" behind the "what" before they figure out the "how."

The Empath

The Empath

Your dog is very emotionally intelligent. They know when you're sad (in fact they probably also come comfort you if you fake cry), when you're happy, and when a cuddle is absolutely necessary. They're trusting and would follow you to the end of the world!
