The Top 10 Easiest to Train Small Dog Breeds.
Here is a comparative list of the easiest to train small dogs. If you are looking for a pet that is easy to train then be sure to have a read, and consider picking one of these brilliant breeds.
Remember, that simply because some breeds learn faster and are easier to coach compared to other breeds, it doesn’t mean they are more intelligent. Ability to master commands quickly and intelligence are two separate things. A slower learning breed may be like that simply because they get bored faster and therefore take longer to master the commands. But that breed may very well be just as intelligent as some of the easy to train breeds below. Dogs who do not seem to pick-up on training as quickly may show their intelligence through imaginative escape artist manoeuvres and their overall problem solving prowess. Always remember that even if a small dog is part of this list, it might not be suitable for you.
The Poodle is the first of the small dogs that come to mind when we are talking about trainability. These highly intelligent dogs will respond incredibly well to training, consistency, and rules.
the Poodle is well known to be an intelligent breed, and have always been a popular pet for this, (and many) other reasons.
Next up, we have the Shetland Sheepdog who is also highly intelligent. This Breed is very easy to train as they still have their sheep dog instincts, and are highly motivated to please and get praised.
The Papillon is next on the list of trainable dogs. They are an intelligent breed, and will excel at training if given good consistent guidance. They are also excellent at agility and will thrive in that arena.
The phalene is the next on the list as they are very closely related to the Papillon. Read more about the breed and learn how with good consistent guidance and positive reinforcement they too can thrive on the challenges set for them.
