Comparing the intelligence of female and male dogsFeatured science projectScience project video

Conclusion

The hypothesis holds true:  female dogs are more intelligent than male dogs.

Dogs are often called "man’s best friend". They are very intelligent and help us to perform many tasks. Dogs have helped us hunt for hundreds of years. Farm dogs help farmers round up sheep or cattle. Security dogs help guards to perform their duties. Equipped with aa sharp sense of smell, dogs  help to sniff out drugs and contraband items. They are often used at customs checkpoints, to fight the battle against smugglers as well as terrorists. Dogs are also trained as guides for the blind.

Also consider

For more reliable results, we should use a larger sample of dogs.

Also consider using other breeds of dogs for this  science project

Modify the experiment by making the dogs perform other tasks.
