Small dogs who are easy to train

Some dog breeds are easier to train because of their abilities to learn faster, retain more of what they learn and an eagerness to please their owner by obeying commands. Dogs who are easier to train are not necessarily smarter than other dogs, they are just more interested in the training lessons and have a greater desire to please their owner. Dogs who do not seem to pick-up on training as quickly may show their intelligence through imaginative escape artist maneuvers and their overall problem solving prowess.

All dogs can be trained, some just take more patience and time but the results are well worth the efforts!
