When it comes to obeying commands, a dog's demeanor can be influenced by a number of different things.
The extent to which a dog's breed and genetic make-up can influence its behavior is dependent on a number of factors
including the quality and length of training, the environment, and the unique personalities of individual puppies.
In 1994, neuropsychological researcher Stanley Coren set out to compile the definitive resource for comprehending the inner workings of our canine companions
which he encapsulated in his book entitled "The Intelligence of Dogs."
The research conducted by Coren was founded on in-depth questionnaires filled out by 208 obedience judges from the American and Canadian Kennel Clubs.
These 208 obedience judges represent approximately half of all judges operating in North America.
According to Dr. Coren's research, the environment accounts for only 49% of a dog's intellect, while the dog's genes are responsible for 51% of it.
