26. Australian Shepherd
Despite the name, Australian Shepherds did not come from Australia. They’re actually an American dog breed, and people bred them to be herding dogs. These dogs are highly intelligent, and you should put their smarts to good use with engaging activities in their daily life. They’re also very active, so a decent amount of exercise is required to keep this dog happy. They pretty much excel in agility training since it engages both the mind and the body at the same time. This isn’t a lazy dog by any means, which means you can’t be either.
