breedson the planet now oftentimes a lot of people will misunderstand the easiest to
trainbreed simply for the most...
intelligent breed or the breed with the highest IQ level and although the intelligence and the IQ level of the dog is important to relevant to this discussion we have to also incorporate a couple of other things including the dogs evenness to please and the dogs eagerness to work whether you combine all of those things alongside that intelligence and IQ level that's what you have a really
traindog because you can have the most intelligent dog breed in the world but if they're not really that you get to please they're a little bit stubborn and maybe more independent like a lot of
breedscan be then it might not make for the easiest to
trainbreed in the world so we're going to be kind of combined in all of those factors when we make the decision about what I think the top 10
breedsin this category are so kicking off our list at the number 10 spot and kind of spoiler alert here really it's going to be the only matter if that feature of today's list and that is Makani core so now for me the kana Corso is the easiest to
trainof all of the Mastiff
breedsMastiff breed you tend to be like I just mentioned a little bit more independent potentially a little bit more stubborn and also a little bit lower on the IQ side which compared to other garden
breedsthat we're going to discuss about moving forward they're just not quite up there in terms of the ability to
trainthem to a higher level and just the simplicity and the ease of...
training them now Mastiff
breedsare one of my favorite probably my favorite category of
breedson the planet and that's a good reason in terms of their devotion their loyalty and their love for their families but in terms of
trainability they do fall down a little bit there now the clinic also on the other hand is an absolutely fantastic example of all the brilliant characteristics you get with the Mastiff breed but they are also very intelligent they have high IQs and they're really eager to work and they're really eager to please which makes them one of the best
trainable dogs on the planet included in the garden breed and definitely in my opinion the most
trainable dog of the Mastiff type family and that is why week by week and month by month were seeing more and more and more people from police and military and personal private protection companies utilizing the Kearney Corsos for a variety of different gardening protection roles simply because of their incredible levels that not only the physicality bring to the table that the Mastiff has in the chronic loss of obviously embodies that beautifully but also because they are just so
trainable and so eager to work and so eager to learn now at the mat 9 we might have one that's a little bit debatable here because why we are talking about the easiest to
guarddogs now for me a
guarddog breed especially kind of for the average person has to embody a lot of qualities and usually for the...
everyday owner of a
guarddog they also have to be a fantastic companion animal and a fantastic family animal that has the intimidation required to scare people away which for the vast vast majority of people wanting a garden breed is all that that dog needs to do now for me that is why I'm including at number 9 the Newfoundland now if it was simply the easiest to
Trainbreed on the planet the Newfoundland would be right towards the top of my list maybe even in one of the metal spots the reason they fall a little bit lower like I say they might not be considered a traditional
guarding breed but they're definitely a good watchdog and they definitely pack a really good level of intimidation especially if you do a little bit of work with them on teaching them how to alert when somebody comes towards the home or there's somebody walking around the property that shouldn't be they have a fungus deep booming bark that is more than enough to scare people off and that big thick shaggy coat makes them easily mistaken for a breed like a Tibetan Mastiff or a Central Asian shepherd but what you do lose in actual garden skills you gain back and more in terms of that eagerness to please that IGAs easiness to
trainas well as being probably the best dog breed on the entire planet of all categories with children and that is why the Newfoundland is one of my most recommended dog
breedswhen I do consultations or just want to help people through videos like this a lot of people...
are surprised that in the garden conversation I include the Newfoundland but like I just say a lot of people misunderstand just to the level of the gardening skills that they actually require and then you found and not only embodies all those other fantastic qualities but and they're also fantastic for first-time owners so when people have come in they're interested in moving into the giant breed world into the garden breed world in my opinion the Newfoundland is probably the best choice of somewhere to start to really understand what it takes to be a high-level canine leader of these large powerful
breedsa number a and kind of flip into the other side of the size spectrum in this argument is the Staffordshire Bull Terrier now the Staffordshire Bull Terrier again is one of those
breedsI recommend a lot especially to first line owners or people looking for a dog that fits in beautifully with a family and just wants a little bit of an intimidation factor the Staffordshire Bull Terrier due to its lineage and due to its a similar appearance to
breedslike the Pit Bull does naturally carry a bad reputation completely unfounded bad reputation but nevertheless a bad reputation with that bad reputation comes a higher level of intimidation and like I keep mentioning and I'm going to keep saying over and over in lots of videos intimidation factor for the vast majority of people looking for a
guarddog is the most important thing that they should be looking for around...
guarding skills once there it's that intimidation box which a Staffordshire Bull Terrier can definitely tick they should then be much more focused on things like ease of
training about their temperament about their skillset to merge into the family about whether they're a good dog for first-time owners and the Staffie ticks nose boxes above and beyond what most people could ever dream of so again like the Newfoundland the Staffie might not be considered a very high level
guarddog but in terms of
trainability and in terms of embodying so many other beautiful characteristics the staff II was no way being left off my list now today's top ten is full of me cheating a little bit or making strange exceptions and I'm kind of going to merge number seven and number six into kind of one thing and that one thing is going to be around about and Shepherd I was going to include the kind of the different varieties of Belgian Shepherd and give
breedslike the Malabar their own section and there are a number in the list but then you plot the two river and you've got the other Belgian Shepherd kind of are shoots before you know what will give them two slots number seven and number six and will squash them all together because the Belgian Shepherd family of dogs are undoubtedly one of the best high-level
training dogs on the planet the level of obedience that you can get
breedslike a Malinois too and it's why mallomars are so commonly used for a wide variety of...
working roles in variety of different police and military and their detection work is because which is how highly capable of being
trained they are now again when we talk about dogs that are being
trainit doesn't just mean their intelligence and it doesn't just mean to the level that they're able to be
trained in the Malinois or the Belgian shepherds as a whole aren't featuring higher on the list even though there might be one of the smartest and they might be the highest ability it does require some experience and some skill set to kind of manage that level of high Drive and we are talking Drive that is off the charts up there with the highest Drive in the whole planet extremely high energy levels extremely high mental stimulation requirements and if you can harness those things potentially one of the easiest dogs to
trainbut for the average person lots of busy lifestyles going to work busy with family busy with their social lives might not be able to offer those things to a Belgian Shepherd you then going to start to see deteriorations and behavior and
training so for that reason I didn't want to feature them higher on the list but again there was no way in a million years that they've worked and a feature on this list I've kind of got them a little bit higher and I've conglomerated all of the Belgian shepherds into this kind of seven and six-point section of the top ten and we'll move on forward from here at number five I have...
the Black Russian terrier and again especially and you probably guessed it Russia the Black Russian terrier is one of the most used
breedsin terms of military police garden protection work just because of how fantastic they are in terms of their potential for obedience levels they also pack the physicality and the prowess required for all of those roles but what's brilliant about the Black Russian terrier or the BRT is that they are just fantastic to
Trainthey're our pleasure to
Trainthey're a pleasure to work with they soak it up they demand more no matter what brother and they love it they're eager to do it again their high drive like the Belgian Shepherd so it does require a little bit of higher levels of skill to really channel it to the high levels of resorts but even a novice owner that's put it in the level of work and are dedicated to follow in a program like a perfect puppy course will be able to see incredible results with a breed like the Black Russian terrier and at them before we have the giant schnauzer which very similar to the bloodshot area not only in terms of looks but also in terms of their intelligence and their overarching levels of ease of
training the judge now sir like I mentioned earlier the collie Corso is fast becoming one of the most commonly used
guarding and working protection dogs on the planet again what people are able to harness that use of
training into alongside their athletic prowess are incredible feats of personal...
protection garden work police work it's off the chart sir again they're an absolute pleasure and I mark my words now a lot of people miss understand the skill set that
breedslike the Josh Nasar and the Black Russian terrier bring to the list a lot of people haven't heard of them a lot of people just presume that they're a bigger version of a miniature schnauzer or a standard schnauzer and they're more just day-to-day companion dogs I'm telling you give it a few years and as they start to filter out of kind of the German brush in Eastern European countries to be more and more used in countries like here in the UK in America they will be a household name alongside some of the
breedsthat we're going to talk about going into the meadow spots and the first of the metal spot at number three taking the bronze medal is the Rottweiler now it probably doesn't really take much of a genius to work out where these metal spots are going and it is also very hotly debated at which level these dogs kind of fit in in terms of intelligence and
trainability now for me the high levels of drive and the high levels of higher levels of Independence for the Rottweiler is what makes it kind of lose out on that gold and silver medal spot they are eager to work they are eager to please they are extremely intelligent dogs are capable of high levels of obedience or working roles and that's whether it's a companion animal or an actual dedicated working dog but for...
me like I've mentioned with some of the other
breedsit does just require a little bit of an extra level of skill set to really be able to harness it so again Rottweiler in the right hands could potentially be the most
trainable dog on the planet especially in the garden world but in the wrong hands it can quickly go wrong so for that reason they just missed out on the silver and gold and taking the silver medal spot is the Doberman the Doberman Pinscher the Doberman for me is an absolutely fantastic dog and one that I've personally come very close to owning on a few occasions in recent years the Doberman embodies every quality that you look for in terms of a highly
trainable dog from the intelligence and IQ level to the eagerness to please to the love and the devotion working with its owner and working with its handler you guys have been following channel for a while will know that I also love the Doberman in a variety of other different characteristics and temperament and energy level factors that should all be taken into account when choosing the right breed which is why the Doberman often features very highly on my recommendations for quite a wide variety of people but in terms of that ease of
training the Doberman for me in terms of the garden world is only picked out by one dog and that's the dog we're gonna discuss now and that dog in the dog metal spot numero uno greatest of all time when it comes of the ease of
training of a gardening breed is...
probably as you guessed by now the German Shepherd the German Shepherd is the most common used
guarding dog in the world for good reason the German Shepherd often still known here in the UK as the Alsatian but that is slowly started to transition back to being widely accepted that the German Shepherd is the right name for them now but the German Shepherd is again not only one of the most intelligent and high IQ
breedsof all time no matter what category you put them into but they're also one of the most hungry to please their owners eager to work they lack that level of Independence even though can't be harnessed to be able to work as a watchdog independently on their own but get them with a handle they get them with somebody that wants to work that dog understands good learning theory and k9 behavior for learning and you were that is why you will see German shepherds all around the world in a variety of roles and not just from the
guarding and police and military roles but through to scent dogs to detection dogs tracking dogs gliding dogs assistance dogs therapy dogs the German Shepherd can just so called anything that you want to teach it from all of those work it rolls all the way down to just being a fantastic companion dog that can learn all the levels of obedience that we require to keep our dog safe happy and under control at all times and like I say if you need any help with that that is what my course is for the link is down in the description box below thank...
