The Border Collie
Regarded as the most intelligent breed, border collies were bred for their ability to herd livestock. They have a smooth trot with the ability to be stealthy, and they display incredible agility and quickness. These dogs are "remarkably smart workaholics; not adverse to a good cuddle". (AKC) Known to be tenacious, energetic, keen, responsive and alert, border collies are loving and playful.
The second most intelligent breed, the poodle, is playful and adventurous. Poodles made their beginnings as both water-sport dogs and military dogs. They carry themselves with pride and have a light, springy stride. This breed is faithful, playful, trainable and alert. Poodles are instinctual and loyal. The United Disabilities Services Foundation lists both poodles and border collies among the top 5 breeds for service jobs.
A Bordoodle is a hybrid cross between a border collie and a poodle, the two most intelligent breeds in the world. They are smart, athletic, loving and beautiful. Their coats are low to non-shedding. This breed is naturally well behaved, even tempered and easy to train. Because bordoodles are affectionate and tolerant, they make excellent companions.
