Saratoga School for Dogs
I have trained six dogs in the last twenty years at Saratoga School for Dogs, 14451 Fruitvale Avenue, Saratoga 408-867-9223. We have boarded dogs here, too; but prefer now to get a house sitter as we have three and spoil them more than before.

This is from "The Intelligence of Dogs", Stanley Coren, Free Press. 100 dog obedience judges rated breeds of dogs for overall working and obedience intelligence. Translation: what a dog can learn to do to make his or her owner happy. Stanley Coren concludes, "Pick a dog on the basis of your lifestyle. A border collie is an absolutely terrible dog for a working person. If you have a (smart) dog…you have to spend time with him."
