The German Shepherd is one of the most iconic dog breeds. Strong, tough, loyal, smart, and immediately identifiable because of their unique coats, patterns, and features, there are breeders and pet owners alike who swear by the German Shepherd. However, there's more to these animals than meets the eye.

Fact #1: German Shepherds Are One of The Smartest Dog Breeds

Being a smart breed is a fairly common brag when it comes dogs, but German Shepherds are particularly smart even among truly clever breeds. When more than 200 judges from the American Kennel Club rated 100 different dog breeds on their intelligence, the German shepherd came in third. These dogs are easy to train, and they pick up lessons quickly, which might explain why so many of them show up in professions like law enforcement. According to scientists, German shepherds are at least as smart as a 2-3 year old in terms of understanding language, and they can learn at least as much math as a 4-5 year old.
