Dogs, with their varying smarts, may be able to tell us more about the nature of intelligence in all animals โ€“ including humans! Try out these three canine intelligence tests to see if your pet is above or below average โ€“ or right on par with the dogs in this study. Keep in mind that weโ€™re comparing the results to border collies and everyoneโ€™s testing environment is a little different, so below average/average/above average is the most accurate measurement (compared to some other tests online that have scoring systems). So smart. Much fun. ๐Ÿ•
