Would you like to know which are the easiest to train dog breeds? Are you trying to train your dog but are having trouble with it? Or maybe you are thinking about adopting a dog sometime in the near future. If any of these apply to you, you might be interested in learning which dog breeds are the most obedient dog breeds and which are the easiest to train. Here’s our top 10 easiest to train dog breeds:


Poodles are known to be very intelligent and obedient dogs. This includes all varieties of the poodle. They are also very eager to please their owner and have a nice low-key temperament, which makes training them much easier than training some other types of dogs.

Labrador Retriever

The Labrador retriever is a very popular dog because of their eagerness to please their owners and their affectionate personalities. Often, the easiest to train dog breeds are going to be the breeds that are the most eager to please their owners, not necessarily the breeds that we consider to be the most intelligent breeds. Sometimes the Labrador Retriever’s eagerness to please turns into uncontrollable excitement, which can hinder the training process. Just be patient and keep training!

German Shepherd

German Shepherds are well known as incredibly intelligent dogs. If you give them a task to work on, they will complete it. You can train this dog to do just about anything. German Shepherds are very active dogs and will enjoy the discipline and structure of being trained. This is one of the breeds of dogs that the police use, so that tells you how trainable they are!


One of the most obedient dog breeds is the Collie. They are smart, not too energetic, and have been bred to be hard, individual workers. They are also very aware of their owner’s needs. This is the perfect combination for a trainable dog.

Shetland Sheepdog

The Shetland Sheepdogs are a little bit more active than Collies, but they are still very trainable. They enjoy and do well in sports and other activities. This combined with their intelligence and their desire to make their owners happy makes for an obedient and trainable dog.

Bernese Mountain Dog

A Bernese Mountain Dog is one of the more obedient dog breeds. They are incredibly intelligent and very confident in themselves. They are often considered watchdogs by nature, so their protective nature allows their owners to train them quite easily. As with all dogs, the sooner you start training, the easier it will be!


The Havanese is considered to be a very entertaining dog. They are funny and they like to have fun. They are also very willing to learn new tricks and to make their families happy.

Belgian Malinois

The Belgian Malinois is another one of the breeds that the police use. These dogs are often used to detect explosives and drugs, and for search and rescue missions. If that doesn’t tell you that these dogs are easy to train, I don’t know what will!

Doberman Pinscher

Some people don’t think highly of this breed, but the Doberman Pinscher is actually a very easy dog to train if done correctly. They may get somewhat aggressive if their family is threatened, but if you have a good bond with your Doberman Pinscher and start training early, they can be very obedient dogs.


Believe it or not, the Rottweiler can be a very easy dog to train. The Rottweiler is strong, agile, and confident. Some people might think this means they will be difficult to train, but this is not always true. They can be stubborn, but if you have the time and patience to train a Rottweiler, it can certainly be done. Once trained, they are very pleasant dogs to have around and will protect its family unconditionally.

While the dogs listed in this article are often said to be the easiest to train dog breeds, any dog can be trained. If you have the time, patience, and are willing to learn, you can turn any dog into an obedient dog breed.
