Our guide to the best intelligent dog names

Dogs are pretty damn smart. It’s one thing to learn a wide variety of tasks and commands, and understand human communication. But dogs excel over other species in the way they’re able to understand and interpret human emotions, and even assist people with disabilities.

Studies have shown that dogs have cognitive abilities similar to those of a 2-year-old child, and some breeds are considered to be more intelligent than others. One of the most magical things about having a dog is just marveling at their intelligence. And if you have a Golden Retriever, Border Collie or another smartass breed, one of these intelligent dog names might be just too good to resist.

For boys, Albert is a great place to start. Human names are fashionable for dogs at the moment, and this one blends traditional charm with scientific significance. It, of course, refers to the great Albert Einstein, the famous German scientist who was believed to have an IQ of around 160! Another old-fashioned name that works so well for boys dogs is Watson. It’s a cute homage to Sherlock Holmes’ intelligent sidekick, and works for dogs of all shapes and sizes.

If you want something a bit more unusual, we really like Rubik. It refers to one of the smartest toys out there – the Rubik’s cube.
