2. Australian Shepherd

Known for their exceptional intelligence and beautiful, silky coats, Australian shepherds are a great choice for people who enjoy teaching their dogs tricks or other activities. Despite their name, these dogs were developed on ranches in the western United States, so they do have a strong herding instinct that requires a bit of work to manage. They are affectionate and highly trainable.
