Finally, the Te Aroha, Waikato based Journal Of Canine Psychology, Edition 9, Monday, 14 April, 2014 has revealed that:
Harvard (Town, Mass., U.S.) Studies were replicated, and after thorough, exhaustive tests of specific canine intelligence factors,
it was found that DOGS (Group 1, Poodles; Group 2, German Shepherds; Group 3, The Australian Shepherd; ) have a markedly higher I.Q. [specific:](r, s) than human beings… Sorry, people. The specific measure r, s refers to objective measures of 1. responsivity (responsiveness to audible stimuli ) and, 2. spontaneity in timing of the generation of a creative response to a problematic situation. (Dogs more intelligent than most species.. )
Videos Of Highly Intelligent Dogs
I heard the words, didn’t you? “Australian Shepherds are absolute geniuses!” It came at the very end of this informative video.
Did you know? New research indicates that dogs misbehave more often at night because they understand when humans can or cannot see them. In this respect, our canine friends are like our children.
Wiki: Is a dog’s brain smarter than a human’s? “Yes.” Are dogs smarter than both cats and humans? “Yes and no.” Reasoning: Dogs have larger brains in proportion to their body weight, but smaller brains than humans in absolute mass. Size of the neocortex is generally taken as being directly proportional to the intelligence level as measured. But the specific intelligence of a dog is more akin to human emotional or spontaneous intelligence, rather than intellectual performance, as in a University examination. Think: Naturally. Woof.
Recent studies of animal cognitive ability prove that humans aren’t much more intelligent than dogs or monkeys. That’s news. Is it good or bad news??
A Counter View On Dogs is…
Dogs are on a similar level, or lower than, cats, in terms of intelligence. They are less intelligent than all monkeys (which includes apes and humans), whales (which includes dolphins), many sharks, pigs, rats (and maybe mice), crows and ravens. They have the same amount of intelligence as all other land predators, on average (bears, felines and canines). Reference: Yahoo! Answers
Dogs are smarter than you think, and here’s proof above … geniuses in two ways that are rather challenging to quantify. It’s no wonder that humans live longer with them. Man’s best friend has survival value to the human being and especially for the ongoing emotional support of the elderly.
