Canine IQ tests have revealed that the average dog is as smart as a 2-year-old child.

The finding is based on a language development test developed by Stanley Coren, canine expert and professor emeritus at the University of British Columbia.

LiveScience reports that Coren's test revealed average dogs can learn 165 words -- about the same as a 2-year-old child. The dogs also can learn signals and gestures, and dogs in the top 20 percent in intelligence are able to learn 250 words.
