The Ruff Report: Dogs and Surveys

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.

A book about a rescue dog
that will touch your heart

THE HUNT OF HER LIFE, is a nonfiction book about Samantha, an unwanted rescue dog who the author adopts at age 2.  This beautifully designed full-color deluxe book, by longtime newspaper journalist Joseph A. Reppucci, contains more than 60 vibrant color photos of dogs to help illustrate the compelling and uplifting story of Samantha - a pretty tricolor bird dog who uses her warm personality to win people over and build a new family after being put up for adoption by a hunter because she is gun-shy and afraid to hunt. Learn how she uses her special bonding abilities with people to help her eventually make a transition from the hunting fields to family life. While reading the The Hunt of Her Life, you will travel with Samantha and the author along a trail filled with surprising twists, sudden turns, mystery and even what some call a miracle. And when the journey is finished, you may never look at people and their pets, motherhood - and perhaps even God - in the same way. The Hunt of Her Life is must reading. It will take you on a captivating journey - a trip like no other - that will touch your heart.

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.
