The Cleanest and Smartest Dogs For A Clean House

Dogs are man's best friend. But what if you are a clean freak? Or have allergies to loose dog hair? Or just simply like to keep your house clean? Today, as you read about the cleanest dogs and smartest dogs out there, you will find out that there is a dog for you. Particularly, there are dogs out there that will make your life easier when it comes to keeping your house clean.

The Best Dog Breeds When it Comes To Intelligence

One thing that can be of concern when choosing the type of dog to adopt is the worry that you will get a pup that is difficult to potty train. To eliminate the possibility of constant worry that your dog will have an accident on your carpet, you may want to consider choosing one of these intelligent breeds.

  • First on the list of intelligence is the Border Collie. From birth, these dogs are naturals at following directions. Commonly bred for sheepherding, it is not surprising that these hard-working, loyal, and energetic Border Collies are one of the easiest breeds to train.

  • The second most intelligent dog breed on our list is the Poodle. If you have ever seen a dog show, you have most likely seen a Poodle showing off its intelligence and beauty as it prances around the stage. With this breed of dog, you will not have trouble training your pup to obey, retrieve, hunt, or potty train.

  • The German Shepherd is the third most intelligent dog on our list. It's not a surprise that German Shepards are one of the smartest dogs because they have such a strong background in police and military work. These dogs will respond wonderfully to your training and never make an accident in the house if they can help it.

  • We have found the Golden Retriever to be the fourth most intelligent dog. This breed is fantastic when given a job such as to be the eyes for someone who is visually impaired, the ears for someone who cannot hear, to comfort someone with a mental disability, or to work on a search and rescue team. With this kind of skill set, it seems obvious that Golden Retrievers would also be careful to not have an accident on the carpet when properly trained.

  • The fifth most intelligent breed of dog on our list is another police and military dog - the Doberman Pinscher. Aside from performing greatly in the military, these smart dogs are strong, fast, and quick learners. Though Doberman Pinschers can be intimidating, they are loyal to their family and good around children in their family.

The Best Dog Breeds When It Comes to Shedding

One of the most important factors you may be considering when looking for a dog that can help you keep a clean home is how much the dog sheds. Below is a list of 5 family dogs that are hypoallergenic and shed very very minimally if at all.

  • First on the list is the Tibetian Terrier. Because these dogs have hair similar to a human, they are the most hypoallergenic dogs on the planet! Instead of their coat shedding and falling off, Tibetian Terriers require frequent grooming.

  • The next cleanest dog on the list is the Maltese Terrier. This clean breed of dog is small, friendly, fluffy, and so cute! Maltese Terriers don't require much grooming and they shed very minimally - it's the best of both worlds.

  • The Shih Tzu is the third cleanest dog on our list. This clean dog is also small in size, loyal, and loving. Because of the long hair on this pup, it is hypoallergenic and barely sheds at all. Fun fact: Shih Tzu's hair only comes out when it's brushed, groomed, or broken. What a clean dog!

  • The next clean dog on our list is the Portuguese Water Dog. Portuguese Water Dogs have a longer coat that is hypoallergenic and requires a bit of grooming. This breed of dog is a great work dog, family dog, and show dog because of its loyal and energetic nature.

  • Last but certainly not least is the Poodle. The Poodle made both lists! It's a clean dog and an intelligent dog. Another great thing about Poodles is that they come in all sizes. There is the regular Poodle, the miniature poodle, and a toy Poodle.
