Have you ever wondered if your dog is smart or maybe… not so smart?

These six tests will help you work out whether your canine should go to Harvard or just stay asleep on the couch.They test your dog’s adaptive intelligence– the ability to solve problems, understand language and learn social cues, like responding to a human smile.We’ve included two real video clips for each test demonstrating different levels of intelligence – from genius dogs to dodos. Naturally you’ll want your dog to be a canine genius, so watch how Professor Coren does the tests before you try them at home.

1. Use your own dog, at least one year old, and living with you for at least 3 months
2. The tests should be like a game for your dog
You must remain calm, don’t raise your voice, act disgusted or over excited
You can only do the tests once or twice for scoring purposes
The tests can be given separately and in any order. Because they’re mostly based on food reward it may be better to give them over a number of sessions so the dog doesn’t end up full of food and tired, both of which will affect it’s motivation and performance, and it’s IQ score.
