Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
This is a chart of dog breeds created by designer David McCandless that ranks the breeds by popularity and an overall data score consisting of intelligence, integrity, ailments, cost, grooming and appetite.
Stanley Coren (born 1942) is a psychology professor and neuropsychological researcher who has become best known to the general public for a series of books regarding the intelligence, mental abilities and history of dogs. I’ve always hated this scale because the average person takes it as a true measure of intelligence and not a measure of obedience (which is what it basically is).
So while my lab is very intelligent and obedient; my chi is also very intelligent and creative. If you want an intelligent dog, then simply select a dog from a reputable breeder from either the sporting, working or herding group has NOT been ruined by the AKC dog shows.
By the way, I have 30 years of experience with MANY sporting breeds (retrievers, pointers, flushers, etc) and the Chesapeake Bay Retriever by a fair margin is the most intelligent of all the retriever breeds.
I understand parameters of some sort are necessary to attempt ranking our dogs by intelligence.
If we're referring to intelligence in general, obviously the pitbull is a more intelligent battler.
Certain breeds can do puzzle solving faster and I think that is the true measure of intelligence not train-ability. I've seen on boar dog forums videos of rottweiler catch dogs, they hung on just as long as any pitbull, yet other members posted stories and videos of rottweilers just barking and standing around the pig. Rottweilers were designed to follow direction, whilst pitbulls were designed to fight, then be pried apart.


On the other hand, an American bulldog would out perform all both pitbull and rottweiler in biting power and strength. If you're going to share your home with a dog, you'll need to deal with some level of dog hair on your clothes and in your house. Dogs who were bred for jobs that require decision making, intelligence, and concentration, such as herding livestock, need to exercise their brains, just as dogs who were bred to run all day need to exercise their bodies.
NOTE: How much your adult dog eats depends on his size, age, build, metabolism, and activity level.
They may not always be the most obedient, but that doesn't detract from actual intelligence level.
The book includes other sections on hunting and other intelligence types, as well a general IQ test that owners can perform on their dogs; that test is better weighted for ingenuity and independent problem solving, but rankings were provided only for working intelligence, and are listed below.
Word length and the amount of syllables therein were factors in pushing a song over the edge from unintelligence to intelligence. But, pitbulls have the hardheadedness to run right up to a boar and hang on to it with total disregard to themselves, most rottwelers aren't determined enough to do that.
And while we all have an opinion on Kanye West, he raps intelligently—although this study would seek to disprove that—about fame, money, racism. And as for bite power, for sure, however the largest of pitbulls bite considerable harder than the ones of average weights (30-55 pounds.) The pitbull in that video was the smallest dog, yet its bite was similar to the GSD, a larger dog with a larger skull.
And most pitbulls have a high prey drive which makes them unsuitable for herding, but i don't think too many rottweilers are used for herding either.


Breed isn't the only factor that goes into affection levels; dogs who were raised inside a home with people around feel more comfortable with humans and bond more easily. Country music coming out on top as the most intelligent genre is laughable; this is the inherently sexist genre that brought you such gems as “Thank God I’m a Country Girl” and Taylor Swift before she found feminism. But rottweilers are extremely intelligent and trainable, I think, after proper training, they would attack the boars in the same way. This list indeed only tells you which breeds are eager to respond to your wishes, not which breeds are intelligent.
It’s also interesting that many of the artists who rank high in intelligence are appropriating the music of other cultures, ie. If your measure of intelligence is based on a dog that functions as a puppet or slave, then I figure it’s a measure of your own intelligence as much as the dogs. Sure, songs like “California Gurls” and “Tik Tok” may indicate our lowering intelligence as a culture (though, having said that, these are two of my favourite songs to get down on the dancefloor to, so do with that what you will), but artists like Lady Gaga, Beyonce and Taylor Swift (despite what the study says!) who are changing the game would suggest otherwise. When picking a breed, consider your own activity level and lifestyle, and think about whether you'll find a frisky, energetic dog invigorating or annoying. Your absolutley right about the rottweiler having the advantage in size, bite force and versatility, that's why rottweilers are used more for police and security work, there physically stronger than a pitbull but most importantly are more responsive to commands and not as prone to dog aggression.
