      I remember this segment from 60 minutes when it first aired. We have a dog (Coalie) who is a 14 year old miniature poodle. He is very smart. I watched the evolution of dogs segment. However, I think that scientists should be more open minded. For example: Influential evolutionist Richard Lewontin wrote the following: "Many scientists are willing to accept scientific claims that are against common sense because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism. Many scientists refuse even to consider the possibility of an intelligent Designer because we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door." I had an evolutionary teacher in high school Mr Melhoff, who told our class to not mention the word CREATION to him, since he did not want to be tempted to change his theory. THEORY: An idea used to account for a situation or justify a course of action. A scientific idea is not always a fact.

    The thing about them “hugging you with their eyes” melted my heart. There are times I’m walking my little dog and she just stares up at me while we walk. In fact she was just doing it 😭💕💕💕

      @pinkman "That creature?" You've not met her, she would sweep you off your snarky feet. And I wasn't comparing her, not with "wonderful dogs" nor with "heinous dogs." I was just saying what she does. I have owned both dogs and cats (and I have had human lovers). I understand the selective breeding that got them where they are today. My cat is very very attached to me. I don't think Alex the grey parrot loved Irene. And now my bus is here -- Tengo que subirme.

      @pinkman someone has feline issues. 😂 Did you have a bad experience with a cat? I ask because some cats can be very wild and untamed or unfriendly ( there are usually reasons for this). But there are so many amazing cats like one of mine follows me more than my dog did, he always wants to cuddle and he actually defended my toddler once from an aggressive magpie. Give cats a chance ❤

      @Lisa Kwaterski you did the right thing ❤. It’s selfish to let them suffer. We had to put our 15 yr old boxer down because she could no longer eat or stand and she was suffering. It will always feel wrong but you did the right thing. And cats show so much love. The fact that they can live independently of us yet choose to stay with us says a lot 😂😻

    When a dog is truly part of the family and is included in everything possible its intelligence becomes evident. Those of us who truly love and pay attention to our dogs understand that dogs have a full range of emotions and love us in the purest way possible.

    My dog passed away last year, but he was a very smart little guy. I could make certain sounds, do different gestures with my finger, and he would understand what they mean. And he had various funny and meaningful expressions. I wish I could have him tested for worlds smartest dog.

    This is fascinating.
    Our family had a Border Collie X with a Northern Ca. McNab Shepard Dog who not only learned the names of his 75 toys, but each toy had a short story with it. If only I'd known what was coming I may not have started to talk to Mo quite so much. Anyway he learned the names of the toys after only a few times of us telling him, then he learned the sequence and sounds of the 'short story' that went with each of them. Then we would hide them in increasingly difficult locations around our large 3 story home. He learned the names of the rooms and the name of closets, he learned to look up and under, etc.
    By 6 mos. he could be sent anywhere on the property or house and given a room to look in for a specific toy. Sometimes he came back without it crawling on his belly as though in great shame, although we didn't mind. He was a perfectionist it seemed.
    The greatest shock was when he started at a very young age to get very excited by the theme songs of different shows we watched on t.v., Frazier being his favorite, but he knew them all and would come and sit in front of me and give me the old Border Collie stare, and wait until I'd hum a bit of the tune and name the main characters in the show in an excited way and then he's explode in an intense snit, grab a toy and shake it whilst growling. I could not keep from saying it or he'd climb on me and paw me until I gave in.
    He was constantly learning and at night I'd take him for long walks around town for hours and hours and he'd look at me for answers to things. I can't know what he understood of course, but the drive for some connection, for some answers was definitely there. I've loved all our dogs & cats but none of us will ever forget our Mo. (:3)

      The Border Collie stare! I think they play Jedi Mind Tricks. I can talk to someone, and notice she's staring intensely at a frisbee. And I will find myself saying, "She wants you to get her frisbee." It surprises me when it happens.

    Dogs are very equipped to understand us on a level that goes beyond verbal and visual clues, they can literally translate our energies. Combine that w the verbal and visual and their abilities to understand us are truly spectacular.

    • Julie Booth
      Julie Booth Month ago +5

      Your right they have the ability to read our energy and read people whether or not the persons intentions are pure or not they know if someone's up to no good or lying stealing angry even when people don't they're very good at reading people and other animals also . And it's amazing how they can check their babies from head to toe and know if something is wrong with them and they do that with human babies also its very impressive just like they can detect covid or cancer etc or when someone is going to die ...rata also do that with their babies and of sonething is wrong with their newborn they eat it which is totally gross but it's true.

    It really matters how one raises their dog, and it's not any different from raising a toddler. I taught my beloved dog words in 2 languages, and he knew the concept of tomorrow and decision-making. Every meal, I laid out 4 food options in front of him and told him to show me which one he wanted to eat that meal, and he'd tap the item he wanted to eat.

      About the languages...I have a rescue terrier mix in Italy. In the beginning I spoke to him in English without thinkiz much about it, but when I began speaking in Italian I discovered there were so many things he understood from whatever life he'd lived before I got him. 12 years later, he understands Italian, English, and French.

    I wonder if anyone recognises our poodle's particular ability. She knows the concept "TO REPEAT A GIVEN COMMAND". Whenever I command her to do something like give a paw, come closer, go back, high five and many more, she'll repeat that when I say AGAIN.
    She's also quick to learn new toy names and often we let her CHOOSE. She gets very excited when she hears this word. We put her toys on the floor in front of her and then she can pick the toy she wants to play with.
    We also have a Chinese Crested. She doesn't like toys, but she's certainly clever too. When her lead gets stuck around a chair leg, she frees herself quicker than our poodle. And she hugs with her eyes a lot!

    I had a Boxer for 11 years she knew all her toys by name. I swear not only was she smarter then some humans, she was more human, then most humans.
    In fact as a puppy she had a baby yellow duck, somehow the duck went missing. A couple of years later we found it in a closet, when I tested her by putting it with hundreds of her toys, and asked the question "where's the baby duck" she sprung up (obviously remembered it) and started searching, within seconds of searching her toy pile she not only finds it, but behaves with the excitement like she just found a long lost friend.

  • Shree Goradia-Merchant

    i had a Mix Border Collie and Shiffon and he was so intelligent much like Chaser. I spent the last 9 years with Georgie and he did not much help from me to live up to his potentiaL He was brilliant with names and recognition of people and objects. He knew so many names of animals, and spent hours watching cats, cows, and enjoyed the pet stores to view all other creatures. He was full of emotion, compassion, and had feeling such as a human. I totally understand and agree that when you get a dog in your life, you should treat the dog as your child and not ignore your dogs potential for intellectual growth. I have been around people of different cultures where in other countries dogs are ignored and treated as street animals.These people do not have the respect for dogs and many people are scared of dogs. It is certainly a huge dilemma. My dog Goergie recently passed away of cancer. I would have given anything to keep him alive forever.

    They forgot to show the most amazing thing that Chaser did: the old doctor scattered all 1000+ dog toys around his house, and then told her to fetch a specific toy. The test was tricky because he used a new name he never taught her, and had put a new toy somewhere in the house. She went around the house, looking at the various toys, and eventually decided to pick up the new toy. She deduced that the unfamiliar word must be the name of the new toy. She's an incredible dog!

      @Doug Tilaran: The owner had to label each toy with the name he taught Chaser, so perhaps Chaser actually learned to read rather than memorize all those names! I'd have a hard time remembering if the names were randomly created.

    Her people were generous enough to allow me to do that.
    One day I was walking with my daughter who was visiting, I wanted her to meet Bently. On our way Bently was out for a walk, about 100 yards from us. The minute she saw me got big smile on her face, her bum started wiggling and she started trying to run to me. She had a bad hip so she couldn't really run.
    She was pure joy.
    She passed away, it still makes me cry. I am so grateful 🙏 to have been able to spend time with her.

    Hearding dogs are very intelligent and they understand many words and read people and animals very well . If my blue healer didn't like someone I learned he was always right...what's more if he got on his hind legs and pushed me back away from someone I was having a conversation with it was because he knew that person was not my friend or worse . People often underestimate animals of all types they are intelligent and they seem to know how the universe works better than humans do .

    I got an auto feeder for my Yorkie because if he can see even part of the bottom of the bowl, he won't eat. The feeder reservoir is clear. Not only does he rake his paw to dispense more (that isn't necessary he copied that straight from me!) he looks at the reservoir and if the level is too low, he alerts me loudly! That shows Logic, reasoning and spatial awareness beyond what was recently believed, as well.

    It takes a while but eventually a dog teaches a human to understand what he's saying. Calling this dog the smartest in the world is like declaring some guy or gal the most beautiful in the world.

    I have a jack russell that I’ve had since Sept of 2013 . He was 5 weeks old . I’ve always talked to him in full sentences and I don’t think he’s ever left my side . He’s always with me . If I’m going to the store I’ll say Eddie, do you wanna go to the store with me ? He will instantly jump up and be excited and when we get to the garage he waits for me to say which car or truck we are taking . So I’ll say Eddie , let’s got to the store , we’re taking the truck . He knows exactly what I’m saying . Same thing with everything else in life . He gets excited over Christmas presents and will unwrap new toys an treats on Christmas Day. If I say Eddie , you need a bath , he will go to the bathroom and sit on the rug until I start the bath water then he will jump in the tub. When he’s done I’ll lay a towel on the floor and he will roll around and dry hisself off . He sleeps in my bed , he has a small pillow that he knows is his. He gets under the covers by himself . I can go on and on about how smart he is . I’ve always treated and talked to him like a human . He’s my little buddy . And when I tell him I love him he will come give me a hug a kisses on the hand or wrist . I’ve never really give it much thought on how smart he really is . But I trust him way more than most people . Hes 9 yrs young now and he shows no signs of slowing down . He’s a really good frisbee or ball catcher . Just a wonderful companion

      @Pam i actually drove a friend one time to a run down old trailer park to drop him him off . I notice a dog pin outside next to their front porch and it was starting to rain . I ask the guy if they were selling them or what . He said theyr $50 take your pick . Two was jumping and barking and one was was in the back corner . He was the only male . When I reached in and pick him up his tail was wagging like crazy . So I put him in the truck . Went to Walmart and all the stuff he needed for the time being. He’s been a good dog . He gets a little loud every once in a while but I don’t mind .

    I have a heeler mixed with border, 1 1/2 old. I have never had a dog that is as smart as her. The second day she would gather leash up and walk herself at 2 months. Took 2 times of bathroom incidents and she has never had a accident in house. Everything I teach her only takes a couple times. Must be a great bread. I have never had a dog like this. She is eager to please. They are a high energy bread and need attention and definitely learns quick and lives her toys.

    Stumbled across this, it was very fascinating.
    I am blind, and I am working with my second Guide Dog.
    I remember when I was in training with her, the instructors at the school said, the very same thing that our dogs are intelligent like a two or three year-old.
    It’s my dog’s job to keep me safe. But I don’t tell her let’s go to the bank. It is simple, straightforward commands when we’re out walking.
    A couple of things that I really appreciate about working with a dog :
    If I give her a command, and she determines that it’s not safe for us, she will intelligently disobey me to keep the team safe. This is called intelligent disobedience.
    The other thing that I appreciate about having a dog is that when we go places often enough, she will pattern to that place and automatically show me the door to the place whether this be a restaurant or a store that we visit frequently.
    Lastly, she sees obstacles as we are walking down the sidewalk and chooses how to go around them, and we just continue on smoothly.

      Before I retired, I had a colleague who was also blind with a wonderful guide dog named Athens. I worked in Tech Support, and he was very interested in giving it a try. I volunteered immediately to show him the ropes of on-line tech service. We had all the state-of-the-art equipment. I was like Athens' Mom. He would come over to me and let me know he had to go outside. My colleague picked up the tech support queue immediately and did a fantastic job. Sadly one day I came in, and my boss called me in the office. Athens had passed in the night, and I was crushed. I cannot even imagine (although you would know) how losing a part of yourself who was always there for you would be. Months later he said he was moving to California and was going to work on another guide partner then. Turns out that all the tech he learned was very useful. He got a terrific job with a company that translated films to voice and text! I would say that they UNDER estimated the dogs intelligence (and every other non-human) big time. I don't know why they do that. I have 60+ years with dogs, horses, and cockatoos on our ranch and I always just speak English with them and they always pick it up immediately. They are all my babies and give the most unselfish love of all! Very best to you and all your endeavors, and please give your canine assistant a big hug for me! ❤

      @vigal79 Hi Vigal79. When I was about ten years old I read a book called "Follow My Leader" by James Garfield about a young boy who went blind and got a dog named "Leader" when he went to the blind school. It was a wonderful book that really made me appreciate the bond between a boy and his dog. I hope that you read that book, it was also made into a movie I think. Lots of luck and love to you and your dog!!!

Yes, dogs and other animals have intelligence. Yes, there are many different kinds of intelligence. When we give our loving attentiveness and care, intelligence can blossom forth. We are really at the very tip of the iceberg in terms of taping into our innate potential in this way.

    My grandfather and father were dairy farmers. My granddad’s Border collie Shep I believe essentially knew conversational English. You could say to her “Hey, Shep, go down to the end of the pasture and make sure we got them all,” and she would go and do it. She probably saved his life once: He had gone into a small paddock where he kept a bull to fill the bull’s water trough. The bull knocked him to the ground and was beginning to strike at his chest with its hooves. Shep slipped under the fence, fastened her teeth onto the bull’s tail, and held on tight until the bull decided to go after her instead. She held on, according to my grandfather’s story, and he was able to roll away and escape while the bull chased his tail. At a strategic moment, Shep let go and darted away. She lived to be 17, or so they told me; I was a child when she died.

    Having to put him down years later because of cancer was brutal. I found him running on the street. I am so glad no one responded to my signs up. I fell in love that night when he jumped in the pool with my nephew.

    My half border collie, half lab, was the same exact way. Just absolutely brilliant! She would act just like a human. She had emotions and could feel our emotions before we could! She only gave out her doggie bark once in a blue moon, if a stranger came to the door. Otherwise she was quite as a mouse with a heart the size of an elephant. Seriously though, she never ever barked!! She went to Heaven 2 years ago and I miss her every single day. I know people don’t like this correlation but our izzy really was a member of our family and we have all grieved her just like we have lost someone we love dearly! She is irreplaceable! We have wanted to get another bundle of fluff, but none can compare to izzy! If ever we do welcome another special family member into our lives, they would have to be the exact same bread as izzy. She was such an amazing little pup. 💜🙏

Dianne would lay down and Lou would lay on top of her until the epileptic seizure would end. Lou was never trained for this. Lou passed away 5 years ago. RIP Lou.

    This is an amazing story! My yellow lab knows the names of his toys which are around 100. He also knows the different names we call his Grandparent's, Aunt's & Uncles & Cousins. I started spelling the word OUT for outside so he wouldn't know & now he knows the spelling of that & knows it means outside. Animals are extremely smart, if you put the time & love into them. Our dog is our baby. ❤️

    If you don't know that dogs love you and each other, you are about as perceptive as a rock!

      Okay so you people have POS parents, not really fair for you to assume the rest of us did.

      Well, to be fair, most parents are WORKING 8-12 hours a day to be able to actually feed their kids. And by the time they've advanced enough in their career that they can spend more time with the kids, the kids are too old to want to spend time with the parents. This guy has the ability to spend this sort of time with his dog, so good for him. But don't sit there and act like everyone could spend this type of time everyday with their kids. Parenting is hard enough without being armchair quarterbacked the whole time.

    If they had studied dogs for the past 500 years perhaps the elderly would have had dogs today trained so well that they wouldn’t need to hire someone to do everything

    My dog invented his own game. I call it nonchalant. When I get home from work he goes crazy and wants to be held and petted, dog owners know the drill. One day I came in and just for a second, she started the routine but then stopped and started walking around just sniffing nonchalantly until I said something to him then it was as if he said "psych, and went into the crazy routine. He does it with his food too. He can hardly wait for his dinner, but once it is served he will take that moment to act disinterested and calmly just sniffs around the kitchen before excitedly tearing into it. I just laugh and laugh. Dogs Rule!

    I always talk to my dogs. One day we were up in my field and I said " the chickens are eating your dog food" and she instantly understood what I said and ran down to the house. I was impressed.

      I know what you mean - My boss once yelled at his two Malaumutes who had decided to run off and chase whatever.... "LADY, BELLE, COME BACK" he yelled - and my miniature fox terrier (Lily) - who was still standing with us - got right into action, raced over to them and herded them back to us.... was an amazing sight to watch.

      For real they do understand it's crazy . I think the closest they are to us the more they learn. I always talk to my boys
