* Dogs do have proportionally smaller braincases than wolves and behave like wolf puppies well into adulthood. Brain reduction and infantilization are typical consequences of domestication. The less changed by domestication is precisely, the domestic cat.

** Dogs, [[CaptainObvious being animals and not people]], cannot relate events unless they are consecutive. Don't shout at a dog (or God forbid, [[KickTheDog kick it]]) because it pissed on the carpet while you were at work, several hours before. The dog can see that you are mad at it but it's never going to make the connection. In fact, it'll probably [[https://positively.com/dog-behavior/nuisance-behaviors/potty-problems/submissive-urination/ urinate further]] to reassure you that it accepts your authority.

* GIR from ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' has to wear a green dog suit to "blend in", and humans gullibly buy it even though there's no such thing as a green dog. While wearing the dog suit, GIR does a lot of comically stupid things like saying "Meow!" to a bystander or running around in a circle ''while leashed to a tree''. And after he runs out of leash, he trips then goes the reverse direction and does this over and over.

* GIR from ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' helps add onto the stereotype of dogs being dumb.

* Somewhat understandable in ''Literature/WarriorCats'' since the main characters are cats, but still. All dogs portrayed in ''Warriors'' are either slobbering vicious brutes, or a harmless, but severe annoyance. Only the slobbering vicious brute variety was capable of any sort of speech, and their vocabulary was limited to "pack" and "kill".
** The funny thing is, the head author actually likes dogs more than cats.
*** Well, in the prologue, when the dogs got out into the forest, they were saying stuff to each other like "Here, hole, hole, here" and "Out, pack out, pack run!"

"kill" repeated over and over. The funny thing is, the head author actually likes dogs more than cats.
*** Well, in the prologue, when the
cats. Sister series ''Literature/SurvivorDogs'' turns this on its head as dogs got out into the forest, they were saying stuff to each other like "Here, hole, hole, here" are smart but [[CatsAreMean sharpclaws are annoying and "Out, pack out, pack run!"cruel]].

* In ''Fanfic/HauntedMansionAndTheHatboxGhost'', the (self-styled) [[http://haunted-mansion-fandom.wikia.com/wiki/Dog "Fabulous" Dog]] is a canine counterpart to über-villain the One-Eyed Black Cat. In contrast to [[CatsAreMean the cunning, dangerous Cat]], Dog is a blabbering lunatic who never does anything to assess his status as the same class of being as the Cat. The Cat is actually ''embarassed'' when Dog is brought up in his presence, and we're talking about as literal a devil as there is in the Mansionverse.

* [[DumbMuscle Rock Bottom]] from the WesternAnimation/JoeOrioloFelixTheCat cartoons is a walking bulldog, and he's very stupid, making it easy for Felix to fool him. In [[Recap/JoeOrioloFelixTheCat1x45FelixAndVavoom "Felix and Vavoom"]], he tells Professor [[LampshadeHanging he's aware of it]].

* Koromaru from ''{{Persona 3}}'' has a human-like intelligence. He may not be smarter than most of the humans in the party, but he could probably give [[IdiotHero Junpei]] a good run for his money.
