Dog Name Meaning Wise Considerations

All dogs are unique individuals but, just like with people, some are simply wiser than others. Researchers believe that dogs typically are as intelligent as a two-year-old child but there are exceptions to that stereotype. In general, most dogs will be able to understand up to 250 words and gestures. They can also count up to the number five and even figure out basic mathematical equations. 

Canines will learn quickly and do not require extensive repetition to grasp new words or phrases. When asked to bring a new object to a trainer in one research study, the dog was able to figure out the word and bring the correct object back to the handler approximately 70 percent of the time, which is comparable to how a two-year-old human child would perform in similar circumstances. 

It is believed that of all the numerous dog breeds in the world, the Border Collie remains hands-down the most intelligent. The breed is followed by the Poodle and the German Shepherd who are both extremely intelligent. Interestingly, researchers also found that wolves compared poorly to domestic dogs. If a handler points at an object a domestic canine will automatically look at the object, but if a handler points at an object with a wolf the wolf will always look at the handler's hand instead of the object. It is believed that the domestic canine's long association with humankind had made it wiser than wolves or other wild dogs. 

Smart canines have served mankind for thousands of years. Wise dogs are used in a variety of occupations such as law enforcement, search and rescue work,  tracking, seeing eye dog, therapy, and medical alert dogs. All of the jobs require a highly intelligent pooch who can clearly understand exactly what his handler wants or needs. Consider these factors when naming your wise new family member.
