Smart Dog Name Considerations
The evolution of canines reflects their thrifty and intelligent natures. Thousands of years ago, wild wolf-like canines started to follow early nomadic mankind. In those days, man lived similarly to Native Americas. They would camp in one location until the foods were exhausted or the weather changed. At that point, they would pull up stakes and move to a new location. Early canines would follow the camps from site to site in order to forage for food scraps.
Many humans developed relationships with the dogs and the dogs also formed close bonds with their humans. This shows the dog's early intelligent tendencies. The early dogs knew that if they formed a close bond with humans then the humans would offer more food and warmth. Humans discovered that dogs were quite smart and started breeding the dogs in an effort to develop certain traits such as hunting, herding, guarding, and companionship. The dogs excelled at every task given and soon started to even exhibit great abilities.
Researchers believe that dogs are as intelligent as a two-year-old human. Most can easily understand 250 or more words. Some dog breeds appear to simply have a greater intelligence level than other pooches. Border Collies, German Shepherds, Shetland Sheepdogs, Golden Retrievers, Poodles, Australian Cattle Dogs, Papillons, Rottweilers, Labrador Retrievers, and Dobermans all appear to be highly intelligent. In the viewpoint of most researchers, they are the most intelligent when compared to other breeds. A smart name would suit these breeds very well.
Dogs formed a symbiotic relationship with humans thousands of years ago and their intelligence blossomed. Their intelligence is what won them a spot beside mankind and why they quickly became known as 'man's best friend'. Nowadays, dogs display their intelligence by performing a variety of jobs such as police dog, search and rescue, drug detection, therapy, tracking, and many other functions.
