2. Border Collies are more social
Many believe that the more social the animal, the smarter he is based on the fact that being social allows him to learn more, thereby increasing their intelligence level. Compare a Border Collie to a cat, and there’s no question who is more social. The former thrive on being social, while many cats choose to go the solitary route. A 2010 Oxford University study suggests that a cat’s independence and lack of social interaction makes him less intelligent, while a 2004 University of Portsmouth study states that a dog’s ability to understand human language, use reason, etc, puts him higher up on the intelligence scale.
