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 found huskies, shiba inu, and bully breeds to be quite the stubborn dogs. German Shepherds in some situations can be hard-headed too, especially when riled up by something. It usually depends on the dog and its upbringing though. Many people say pitties are stubborn, but if the owner isn't a pushover, the dog tends to be pretty easy to train.

Border collies and the like are the easiest and most eager to train, I've noticed.

No dog is 'stubborn' - if they seem that way then its because they either don't understand what you want from them or the reward for displaying the desired behavior isn't valuable enough.

I have a border collie mix who probably appears to be very 'stubborn' but she's really just very smart and working on new tricks or behaviors just requires high value treats :) She also has a high prey drive so getting her to ignore a passing squirrel is no easy task!

My Old English Bulldog just does things in his own time. That is considered stubborn by some, but it is part of the breed's charm. I find he really likes to take his time when I am in a hurry! That is why I love Bullies! He always makes me laugh when I am trying to rush him.

I would say the most stubborn breeds of dogs come from the Bully Breed. My top picks would be Mastiffs, French Bulldogs, and Bulldogs. So cute, but SO stubborn.

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