What is the stubbornest breed of dogs?

I have 4 chihuahuas in my pack that are very 'opinionated' for sure. Recommend a companion breed?

A female Husky is the smartest, and most stubborn dog you could ever own.

I've had 3 Rhodesians Ridgebacks; wonderful, really smart, but they put the stub in stubborn!

I would say sometimes its not down to the breed as it is to the particular dog itself. You can have a wonderful, sweet Chihuahua but many have little dog syndrome and can be beasties. Great Danes can try to compensate for their size by being extra gentle or try to intimidate you because with their stature. Much of any dogs stubbornness may be avoided in how we react to this behavior and by prior socialization and training per the owner.

I disagree, my Ridgebacks have all been quite stubborn. All literature talks about their inherent stubborness.

My mini Aussie dachshund mix.. brains of the Aussie, attitude of the doxie. She's pretty much a cat.

The smaller the dog, the bigger the attitude I always say!

I think it depends on the dog itself, don't think any particular breed is more stubborn than the other. I do agree, though that small dogs have big attitudes. lol ;)

Agreed! love big dogs! But the smaller ones always seem to have "issues, drama, or attitude" haha! It's so great to see all their personalities!

Basset Hounds. I've had two and I've never seen anything like it in all my life. I guess they probably all are when they don't want to do what they're told. Just like kids!! Haha!!

I had Airedale terriers growing up. They were definitely the most stubborn dogs I've ever had.
