TOP 10 Least Obedient Dog Breeds

– Obedience is an ability of dogs to comply with our commands
and requests and that is, of course, very important thing. But some breeds are much
harder to handle than others. And in this video I will tell you what are the top 10 least
obedient dog breeds? (soft music)
(dog barking) Let’s make a little quiz
before we start this video. Which one of these three dogs
do you think will be listed in this video as one of the
least obedient dog breeds? A, Afghan Hound, B, Labrador
Retriever or C, Shih Tzu, and tell me in comments if
you made a correct pick. People tend to think that that
if the dog is not obedient he must be stupid, but
that’s not true at all. Most of the dogs, well, all
of the dogs on this list are pretty intelligent but they are also very independent and stubborn. These two traits, these
two personality traits and characteristics makes
them one of the least obedient dogs in the world not their intelligence. And now, let’s jump into the list. Number 10, Bloodhound. Long ears and excellent sense of smell Bloodhound is a typical hunter and hunting is the thing he lives for. They are very gentle dogs
but it’s almost impossible for them to obey commands if they are in the middle of sniffing. Especially the off-leash
training is extremely difficult because they just follow any scent. Number nine, Akita Inu. Another working dog that
is pretty challenging. They require a lot of
socialization and training and they definitely need
consistent and firm leader. Akitas were bred to be
hunters and they did hunt wild boars and deers in the past. They do love challenges
and you should provide them with a lot of mental stimulation. Number eight, English Bulldog. Extremely stubborn dog,
the best tip for training an English Bulldog is to use
a lot of different treats and always use them when training. Bulldogs are very food motivated. I mean, all dogs are food motivated, but Bulldogs are on another level. And even if you train them some tricks prepare for very slow
reactions because bulldogs are not only stubborn
but also pretty lazy. But lazy doesn’t mean a bad thing always. Lazy dog will be a great partner for a person that is not so active. Number seven, Borzoi. Borzois might look kind of
fragile and week on a photo, but the truth is that they
were bred to hunt rabbits, foxes and wolves, yes wolves. Borzoi will try to hunt
everything that moves and they will not care
much about your commands when they are hunting. Their prey drive is so high
that it’s always advised to keep them on-leash if you
are not in a fenced area. Number six, Beagle. Cute, intelligent,
playful and independent, and mostly they think with their nose. It’s hard to keep their attention, they get distracted very easily. Because of that keep the
training session short and fun. That is the way how you can
achieve the most with Beagle. Number five, Dachshund. Another hunter, is anyone surprised? Dachshund were bred to hunt badgers, rabbits and other animals. They dig into the tunnels
chasing the badgers. They are fearless,
independent and lively dogs. Oh, and they are also pretty big barkers. Number four, Basenji. The most unique characteristic
of Basenji is their yodeling. Thanks to that, they are
also know as the barkless dog but that doesn’t mean they are quiet. Basenjis are intelligent
but they are using their intelligence to
do what benefits them. But we can use this to our advantage. It’s always a good idea to have something they want in your pocket. And, of course, I’m talking about treats because even Basenjis will
be pretty obedient for them. Number three, Siberian Husky. Very popular breed that, a
lot of people who get Husky are just not ready for him. Huskies are free thinkers and
they are highly energetic. If you want an obedient Husky you better give him some job to do. Huskies are working dogs
and they will love it. Number two, Afghan Hound. One of the hardest breed
to train, Afghan Hound, just like the Husky is a free thinker. They rely more on their own judgment rather than following you. It’s pretty hard to make
they obey your commands because they will just do
what they think is the best. If you want to get Afghan Hound you should better be
a very patient person. Number one, Chow Chow. It’s said that Chow Chows
have cat-like personality. Intelligent, but also aloof,
dignified and reserved. They will oftentimes ignore you even though they will hear your commands. And without proper socialization Chow Chows are also pretty
territorial and kinda aggressive. Just because I put these
10 dogs on the list doesn’t make they completely untrainable. All dogs are capable of
learning new commands, tricks and all dogs are
capable of being obedient just like all dogs are
capable of being disobedient. You will find some very
disobedient Border Collies, the dog breed that is very often marked as the most obedient. Actually, the least
obedient dog breed would be the one with the least patient owner. With patience and consistency you can make almost any dog docile and obedient. And now tell me in comments, what do you think is the
least obedient dog breed? And if you are new on this

Good list. BUT I would place the English Bull Dog as Number 1 for Least Obedient Dogs. The English Bull Dog that I grew up with was stubborn and would not listen to any command (come, sit, stay, etc.) EVEN WHEN OFFERED STEAK FOR AN INCENTIVE!!!  

He LOVED to ride in cars, so one day my father took him to the store and a ride which took about an hour. When they got back home he was happy BUT refused to get out of the car for hours. My father took him on another ride during this time, offered him steak, cat food, etc. Finally the ONLY way he got out of the car was to move the car into the garage and RING THE DOOR BELL!!!! He hated the door bell. He would not listen to anyone in the family to come into the house. He was a character!!! He was sweet gentle and thought he was a lapdog!!!

We also had a dog half AFGHAN and half Golden Retriever. He also would not listen and obey. He had the round body of a Golden in his mid section but the coloring, hair, face and ears of an Afghan. He would never listen to commands (sit, come, etc). He loved our cats and always slept with them.

Another good video.

Hey Rocadog, I'm the guy who adopted "Duck" the Labrahound back in October—The pup that kept jumping over and over when taken out on a walk. He's name is now Sheriff Hopper. His training is going very well. At first I thought he was going to be tough to train due to his high energy and desire to follow his nose. But it turns out he is very trainable and has a desire to please people. Of course he really likes to please people who have treats.
