Are Pigs as Smart as Dogs?

We all know that most dogs are pretty smart. They can be trained to do many things that humans can't. They can smell drugs, bombs, attack bad guys, help the blind, even smell blood sugar and sense when an epileptic seizure is coming. That is pretty smart but could a pig be trained to do things that are just as helpful to peoples lives?

Well, many people who have owned pigs (not big factory farmers), will tell you that pigs are smart. Some would even say they are smarter than dogs! Not sure about that, but I do think they are smarter than some people.

So here is a short video where researchers talk about why they feel pigs are similar in smarts to dolphins and dogs.
