When you think of most intelligent dogs, one rarely thinks of the Border Collie. Usually, the first names on that list include Retriever, Labrador, German Shepherd, and so on.

But the Border Collie is actually the most intelligent dog breed in the world. A working and herding dog breed, the Bordie was developed in the Anglo-Scottish border region.

Initially, the Border Collie was developed for herding livestock, sheep as its main focus. Bred for intelligence and obedience, the Collie has become one of the most, if not the most intelligent dog breed in the world.

The border collie can learn voice commands, follow directions from a whistle or hand signals, and can follow a command from as far as a half a mile. They understand more words than most dogs, and they rightfully considered the most intelligent dog breed in the world.

Take a look at the short video exploring the intelligence of a border collie.
