while we are thinking about testing a pets intelligence here`s another little test from dognition.com.
Make your dog sit and watch.
Place 2 upside down plastic cups on the floor - one with a treat under it - in front of you.
Lift the rim of the cup hiding the treat and show your dog.
Cover the treat and point to the empty cup.
If your dog is mainly empathetic he will trust you and follow your finger.
If he relies on memory to make decisions, he will go towards the cup with the treat.
obviously mine doesnt trust me at all!! - treat every time!!!!
