Easy to Train Dogs

Questions & Answers

Have questions about the best easy to train dogs? We have answers!

Does “easy to train” also mean “intelligent?”

There are a couple of traits owners should look for in dogs that are easy to train. The first is overall intelligence, which you can think of as your dog’s ability to learn. The second is obedience, which you can think of as your dog’s willingness to learn. The most trainable dogs combine both intelligence and obedience.

What are some of the best dogs to train and dogs easy to train?

It’s no surprise that the top easy-to-train breeds are those that combine some level of intelligence and obedience. Some of the most popular at Uptown Puppies are the Border Collie and Poodle (considered to be the #1 and #2 most intelligent dog breeds), Doodle hybrids, Labrador and Golden Retrievers, German Shepherds, and many more.

Are Border Collies the easiest dog to train and take care of?

You bet! Border Collies are all-stars of the dog world. Considered the most intelligent breed on the planet and medium sized dogs easy to train, Border Collies were bred to herd sheep and cattle near the border between England and Scotland. They’re super athletic, smart, acrobatic, friendly, and high-octane. If you’re looking for a bright puppy, look no further.

Are Poodles the easiest puppies to train?

Absolutely! Coming in at Number 2 on our list of most intelligent breeds, Poodles are incredibly bright and respond well to training in a large variety of commands and tricks. Poodles are naturally goofy and love to perform. Best of all, Poodles come in different sizes, making them great for families of all types.

Are Labrador Retrievers the most easily trained dogs?

Labrador Retrievers (and retrieving dogs in general) tend to be pretty darn smart. What’s more, retrievers are as obedient as they come. Your Lab will love to learn new tricks because they love to make you happy! Being easy to train is just one of the reasons why Labs are one of the most popular dog breeds around.

What about Doodles? Are small dogs easy to train, or are bigger dogs easier?

Doodles are hybrid dogs created by crossing the ultra-smart Poodle with other amazing breeds. For example, the Labradoodle is a cross between a Poodle and a Labrador Retriever, while a Cockapoo is a cross between a Poodle and a Cocker Spaniel. Cavapoos are one of the easiest small dogs to train. Doodles tend to be smart, obedient, and easy to train.

How do I know that my puppy will be healthy?

All puppies raised by breeders or businesses in our network are backed by a nose-to-tail vet check before they meet you. These evaluations closely examine the health of your puppy’s nose, teeth, mouth, eyes, ears, skin, fur, and their gastrointestinal, cardiovascular and respiratory systems.

How do I get my puppy?

There are several ways breeders and families can arrange to get your small dogs that are easy to train from A to B. The most common is air travel, where your breeder will arrange for your pooch to fly to your closest, most convenient, major airport for quick pickup. No matter where you are, uniting with your dream dog is easy!
