Yes pigs are way more intelligent as dogs are. Dogs are stupid, they follow the leader and if the leader is not strong they will try to take over control. Dogs live in a group so that says enough. Stupid dog is not just an expression. Yes you can learn dogs to help you out and be usefull but these are tricks learned to him by the human being. It's not natural behaviour at all. Pigs are different (seems if it comes to dna and intelligence they are very close to the human being so you all are warned.. the book; animal farm is not such a science fiction at all). Pigs make their own plan. Had one in my house. She was very intelligent and did things you would never believe. She was also great with the ferrets and cats, litter trained (herself).

You seem to have done a lot of research on pigs. We are unaware of many things about many animals. Since human beings live in close proximity to dogs we have learnt a bit more about them.More than intelligence dogs are known for loyalty towards its master.

I must say that it is hard to believe that pigs are smarter than dogs. Here usually we will regard the pigs as lazy and stupid. When we insult some people who are lazy and stupid, we will call them as pigs. What a surprise to know that they are even much more intelligent than dogs. I love China

Yes, I have experience of this. When I was very young, we kept pigs and they were highly intelligent and follow us around from time to time. They were also very mischievous and inquisitive, so when they did come out of their pens, we would need to make sure that there were no gates open or gaps that they could get their heads through, because they would be gone across the fields. That did happen once or twice, but they always came back when we called them, because they quickly learned that to be called, meant there was going to be some sort of treat.. _Derek

Wow! I never knew about this! I've been trying to teach and train my pet dogs and I think that they are really smart, but never did it crossed my mind that those pork that I eat came from a more intelligent animal than my dog. It would be very interesting to see that research or journal that you have read and is citing out. Maybe you can put in the link for that resource. I am really interested in trying to know the results of that research. Thank you very much.
