Is your dog's breed on the easiest-to-train list?

Commands such as "stay," "sit" and "fetch" as well as basic training are apparently much easier to teach to certain breeds of dogs, according to a survey of professional trainers.

The trainers say that the Golden Retriever is the easiest breed to teach, the Pitbull is second and the Poodle is third.

Rounding out the top-10 easiest-to-train breeds are: Labrador Retriever, fourth; Border Collie, fifth; German Shepherd, sixth; Boxers, seventh; Goldendoodles/Labradoodles, eight; Shih Tzus, ninth; Dachshunds, 10th.

The survey also found that the age of a dog was actually a more important factor than breed. Participants said senior dogs - regardless of whether they are purebred or if they are mixed breed - take the least time and effort to train. The trainers said puppies and shelter/rescue dogs are the most difficult.
