Smarter? Prolly a cat when all is said and done. They are superior predators, no question there. Now as to which one has managed to bond their fate closer to the finest apex predator on the planet, dogs hands down. Cats do a great job keeping small rodents in check and hacking up hairballs. Dogs:
Detect drugs, cancer and seizures.
Help blind people lead better lives.
Find people in distress.
In my experience lately I'd have to say my dog.
Some neigbourhood cats used to come in my fenced yard but my dog hates cats,,,,,,and ummm, lets just say there's not as many of them as there used to be and leave it at that.
I look at my cat and my two GSDs and I'm not sure which one is smarter, I know the cat is meaner and will tease Lola and Harry given the chance. Cat has a superior attitude and is definitely in charge.
if your GSD is eating and eating and eating and losing weight - please consider testing for EPI.

I don't think that biddability has anything to with intelligence.
but, the picture was just for a joke anyway
I was voting for the cat this morning because I was FREEZING and I wanted to come in and get warm. The dog was covered in ice.
