Most trainable small dog breeds
How cool would it be to own a dog who can roll over on command, jump through a hoop and really just do any trick that will impress friends and family?
There are certain breeds who are thought to be more apt — and eager — to learn new things. In fact, to own some of these dogs, you'll probably want to come up with new tricks and tasks on a regular basis to help keep them entertained. If you're active and have the time to devote to training, then you're in the right place. If not, well, some of these dogs may be more than you bargained for. In general, these trainable dog breeds are also very energetic and intelligent, so don't expect them to settle for snoozing on the couch all day.
