Simple 10-Minute IQ Test for Dogs

Are you convinced your pup is smarter than the average canine, but weren’t sure how to prove it? Well, now there’s an easy way to estimate your dog’s cognitive powers.

In this episode of Pet Talk, Dr. Sarah reveals exactly how to conduct this test at home, with help from her canine assistant.

Download our free doggie IQ test to keep score- Simple 10-Minute IQ Test for Dogs. Afterwards, you’ll have a ‘report card’ to post on your fridge.

It’s so much fun you’ll be asking yourself if it’s a test or a game. [Spoiler alert: it’s both!]

We encourage you to share this video with your pet-parent friends, so they can do the doggie IQ test, too! And check back next month for another brand new episode of Pet Talk with Dr. Sarah.

    This is fun and a great way to interact with your four legged family member!  Great activity for the kids to do with the pets!

    Great way to prove to your friends and family that you truly do have a super smart dog! Fun to do the test regardless of the results. It would be a cool experiment to do the test before you started feeding Life's Abundance and then again 6 months later to see if the score improves.

    This looks like fun!  It reminds me of the puzzle-type dog toys that I use for my puppies and adult dogs.  It is so important to provide your pets with mental exercise as well as physical exercise.  When I'm playing games or training with my Golden Retrievers, Poodles, and Goldendoodles, I like to use BOTH the Life's Abundance Training Treats and the Life's Abundance Buffalo Lung Fillets.  The dog in this video looks like it might be a Poodle mix of some type.

    This is a wonderful way to interact with our pets.  My dog took the test and passed with flying colors. Smile I printed copies to give to my grooming and training clients.  Thank you Sarah!!!

    Tried it with our two greyhounds:

         Zelda got 9 points total.

         Jordie got 7 points total.

    According to the score chart, that makes both of them “average problem solvers” that probably won’t go to Harvard.

    Definitely not Harvard, unless Harvard gives out our Tasty Rewards treats every few minutes. Even then, I’m not sure.

    I have two dogs and tried it with both.  Not only was it fun, but it confirmed what I already thought!  I have one Really really smart dog, and while the other isn't the smartest *or second or third) in her pack, she is lovable (:

    Great idea!  I am going to share this with our clients!  It will encourage them to interact more with their babies and see how smart their dogs really are.  Thank you Dr Sarah!
