ne of the most intelligent animals in the kingdom, no doubt about it, but did you know some canines are actually smarter than others? It’s true. According to the American Kennel Club, many breeds of “herd or hunting” dogs, who were bred in order to help hunt for food or protect other animals and livestock, have a biological inclination to be some of the smartest dog breeds.
