The intelligence of dogs is relative, don´t forget!
The intelligence of dogs is relative. Stanley Coren wrote a book called “The Intelligence of Dogs”, where he ranked 133 breeds. Coren’s intelligence is based on the number of repetitions that each race took to learn a certain command.
See the complete ranking here and how the study went. Let’s go to the races:
- Afghan Hound
- English Bulldog
- Chow Chow
- Basset Hound
- Shih Tzu

Diseases that cause hunger
There are some dogs that actually suffer from endocrine and gastrointestinal diseases that can lead to increased appetite. Diabetes, Cushing’s disease, hyperthyroidism (rare in dogs) and some pancreatic disorders are all potentially responsible for an impressive urge to eat.
However, the medical logic for a “hungry” dog is considered unusual compared to the vast population of “hungry” dogs out there. But, ideally, you should take your dog to the vet to rule out health problems.
How to quench the dog’s hunger
The answer is simple: QUALITY FOOD. Many dogs may be eating a bad feed and without much nutritional quality and therefore end up feeling more hungry, as they are not getting the nutrients they need. Dogs are more satisfied when they eat Super Premium food.
