Dogs are the best friends to mankind. For a long time, they have sided with humans, working hand in hand with their masters so as to meet certain goals which can be protecting the family, hunting or shepherding. To quite a number of us, we view them as having a high level of intelligence and give them equal rights like any member of the society, instead of just a pet.
We are all aware that the breeds of dogs are of differing size, fur color as well as other visual properties. This is what enables us to distinguish the more than 400 breeds of dogs that are in the world. But are you aware that the intelligence, companionship and temperament of dogs do vary?
A second form of intelligence that dogs can posses is adaptive intelligence, which refers to the ability of the dog to correct their own behavior, learn the manner in which they can adapt to new and changing circumstances, and also figure out the answers to simple problems. Dogs that are good at adaptive intelligence are a perfect companion for children as well as individuals that frequently travel as well as the families.
The other form of intelligence that a dog can display is working intelligence or what is alternatively referred to as obedience intelligence. Working intelligence is the ability of the dog to not only learn what the humans teach it, but to also commit these lessons into memory where they will use later on. Dog breeds that have high level of working intelligence are best suited to service individuals that have special needs, and are also well used in bomb detection squads and police forces.
