5.0 out of 5 stars Are you the perfect couple? 15 Oct 2002
By A Customer
This delightful and enlightening book both educates and entertains no matter what breed of dog you own or who owns you.
Intelligent or charming, doting or demanding, dog owners are categorized by type and breeds of suitable dogs suggested. I would dare any dog owner to read this book and take the tests along with their dog to find out who is the most intelligent themself or their dog. Find out just 'Who Trains Who'.
This book makes one think about their relationship with their dog in a fun and entertaining way.
A must for every dog owner! A must for every dog!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really fun!! My dog is a genius! LOL! 16 Jan 2002
By Brenda Worrell - Published on Amazon.com
I am the President of Angel Pups, an organization that trains kids (middle school and up) to work with their dogs and then takes them to visit nursing homes. For fun, last week we all did this IQ test together! We all laughed SO hard, some kids had tears streaming down their faces!! It is a blast to see how smart your dog is and what you can do to help them improve their intellectual capacity. This week we're doing the Owner IQ test!! I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys working with dogs!!

5.0 out of 5 stars For Everyone of Us Who Believes Dog is Smartest 13 April 2001
By rodboomboom - Published on Amazon.com
Neat book for us dog lovers to examine our dog's intelligence and then let this data be added to the collection the author maintains.
She gives the findings of her research. So many interesting gleanings to be had from this work. We have used these now on three of our dogs, of two different breeds. Also, used the author's cat i.q. book. Cat is hands down the smartest, as we already surmised.
4.0 out of 5 stars A good book for dog lovers but when I was a kid some of the questions/answers went above my head. 17 Feb 2014
By Jesse Radin - Published on Amazon.com
This was a really fun book. I tested my dog with it and I believe she was 120-130 IQ, though I have to admit I was very biased toward rating her highly. She was a very intelligent dog, though. For example when my mom would ask my stepdad if he wanted beer, Lucy knew beer was a liquid, and she would respond to this by rushing to her water bowl to tell my mom it was empty. She also used to "shiver" to be let back in because she got to come in when she shivered outside in the winter... and she'd start trying to shiver in the summer as if she were cold.

But the book does lose a star because when I was a kid I didn't know all the newspapers. There was a question asking "if your dog could read, what newspaper would it read?" Wall Street Journal, New York Times, USA Today, and World Weekly News I think. I didn't know all those papers when I was 10 or 11 so I didn't know which question represented Lucy best.

Overall it is an enjoyable book and it is timeless. Still a great gift for a dog lover 18 years after I received it.
