Top 10 Hardest Dog Breeds To Train (But We Love Them Anyway)

Before adopting a dog, there are things to know: is it a dog that bites? A smart dog? A dog capable of lifting 500 kg on the bench press? And the most important: is it a dog that is easily educated? Because the big jerks who don’t listen to orders and do as they please, no thanks. Here is a small selection of the hardest dogs to educate, so you will know what to expect.

1. The Siberian Husky

The husky is a very stubborn dog: when he decides to do something stupid, you won’t be able to prevent him from doing his stupid thing. If he wants to puff out the living room curtains, he’ll puff up the living room curtains. If he wants to dig a hole 18 meters deep in your garden, he will do it tkt. In short, it’s super boring and it’s not even worth trying to raise one in an apartment. I would have warned you anyway.

2. The Shar-Pei

The Shar Pei has a hard time accepting authority. For him, he’s the boss, he who commands, he who chooses what we watch on TV tonight. So, to succeed in educating him, you have to show him that it’s not a little wrinkled turd that will rule the house. But without violence, because we are not barbarians. A little patience and firmness should suffice.

3. The Samoyed

He is one of the most beautiful dogs on the planet, certainly, but also one of the most obstinate. And as if that were not enough, the Samoyed tends to bark at everything and nothing. A bit like Michel, the guy who is in your PMU every day from 7am. It is therefore necessary to educate him from an early age to avoid this. I’m talking about the Samoyed, not Michel. It’s too late for Michael.

4. The Dalmatian

Disney made it a very cool and very nice animal, but in reality the Dalmatian is a big mule head (not to say “con head”) who will always prefer to follow his own ideas than yours. At the same time, you just have to make good decisions. In the end, he may be right. Question yourself a bit.

5. The Beagle

Beagles are ultra cute but quite unbearable on a daily basis: they are overexcited, bark easily and always need to be busy with something. So, when they are in packs for hunting, it goes well, but if you take just one as a pet, you will crack in less than 2 weeks and try to pass it on to your hyperactive cousin. And it sucks to do that.

6. The Akita

To educate an Akita, you better be patient. Kind as patient as an inhabitant of Brittany who would wait for good weather. Yeah, very patient. Because the bugger wants everything except learn to obey. And I can understand it.

7. The Karelian Bear Dog

Yes the Karelian Bear Dog is a super strong head to train, but anyway, honestly, were you planning on adopting a Karelian Bear Dog from one of these four? I don’t think so, no, for the simple and good reason that nobody knows this breed of dog (apart from people who go to dog shows on Saturdays). Besides, I have already forgotten its existence.

8. The Dachshund

The Dachshund is the kind of dog that runs around all the time and that eats your charger cables just because he is bored during the day. You’d better have time to devote to him and get him used to waiting quietly for you while you’re outside otherwise he’ll destroy your life and devour your soul (or your sofa).

9. The Shiba-Inu

A sort of look-alike of the Akita in a smaller size, the Shiba has a somewhat complicated character too. You have to start educating him very early otherwise he will start rebelling and throwing tantrums to get a scooter. It can quickly become very unbearable.

10. The Chow Chow

Let’s be clear: chow-chows are dogs that don’t do anything interesting and put us in misery. However, there are always people who love to suffer enough to adopt them. Too bad for them, because chow-chows will never want to listen to their orders.

Well in real life, all these dogs can be great companions, but it all really depends on the living environment you offer them. Think about it before bringing a dog that needs large spaces to live in a 22m2 in Paris. And if not, have you seen the memes on the dogs?
