The Labrador retriever is the easiest dog breed to train, according to Dogs by Nina. Because of its natural willingness to perform trainable skilled tasks, the Labrador retriever works alongside police, military, hunters, trackers and retrievers. It also works in drug detecting and on search and rescue teams.
According to Animal Planet, some of the easiest dogs to train also include the Rottweiler, Doberman iinscher, German shepherd, golden retriever and border collie. However, just because a breed is easy to train does not mean it is the appropriate fit for any particular family. A prospective dog owner should research breeds to find the most trainable dog appropriate for his living and financial situation, keeping in mind breed requirements and restrictions.
