Most of us will say our dog is cute, maybe even clever, but your dog might even be one of the top ten smartest dog breeds, at least according to a recent list from the American Kennel Club. They were asked to list the ten smartest dog breeds.

Now we know every dog is different, and mixed-breeds are some of the smartest, so we want to mention them up front. If you have a mixed breed (or any breed!) that's great at a certain task, we'd love to hear about it in the comments.
1. Border Collie
Known as the workaholic of the dog world and prized for its intelligence and working ability, the Border Collie excels at agility. Border Collies have extraordinary instinct and need a job to do in order to be happy.
2. German Shepherd
The German Shepherd is extremely smart at police work. They are well-known to be the world's leading police, military,and guard dog. They're also loyal and dependable.
Bloodhounds are the best at trailing. They are often used in police work and search and rescue. Their scenting abilities are so exceptional that a Bloodhound's mantrailing results are permissible in court.
