Dogs bark and that’s how they communicate. They want to talk to us and we've already discussed what some of them mean.
In this article, we’re going to list down 5 of the noisiest dog breeds known to man. Any dog can be nuisance barkers but these 5 are among the top of the most talkative breeds.
Being a dog owner is a huge responsibility. Choosing the right dog can be a tedious task and there are so many possible factors that we might need to take care of. First is the size of the dog, your budget and several other questions. Some people might like quiet dogs which we’ll be writing about in the future. Others may like dogs that are a bit more active and have something to say all the time.
A number of vets have listed down the noisiest popular dog breeds that they know of and here are the top 5 breeds.
Alaskan Malamutes are a large breed of domestic dog, originally bred for heavy hauling because of their strength and endurance. Later on, they became sled dogs. They are well furred which protects them from cold temperatures and is similar to other Alaskan breeds such as the Siberian Husky, Canadian Eskimo Dog, and Samoyed. They are playful, loyal and are loud barkers.
These little furries are the smallest breed of dog recognized by some kennel clubs. Named after a state in Mexico, these little dogs stand proud of their size. There are mainly two types of Chihuahuas, short-haired and long-haired but they come in a variety of sizes, head shapes, and colours. They are known to be very loud barkers and that high pitch tone is the cherry on top.
Commonly called Poms or Pom Poms, these Spitz-type toy breeds are very cute. They have long beautiful double coat hair which reminds me of a lion’s mane and less hair on their legs. They are very friendly, playful and protective of their owners. They often bark at noises because they are defensive of their territory. The picture above is Boo and Buddy. Boo has been given a cut that makes him look like a bear but the other Pomeranian is buddy which is how a typical Pom looks like.
Called Mini Pin for short, these small dogs look like they’re a cross of short-haired Chihuahuas and Doberman Pinschers but they actually originate from Germany with its earliest ancestors possibly being the German Pinscher crossed with Dachshunds and Italian Greyhounds. They are very active, energetic, outgoing and assertive which pretty much spells LOUD BARKER.
The Beagle is our top spot winner for being the loudest dog breed. While they may be huge barkers, they have a very well balanced temper and are very gentle. They have a very distinct expression in their face and they look a bit like the Foxhound but with several differences. They are popular for their tri-colour coat and their barking. They may howl at times but most just bark when faced with strange situations. The picture is of Snoopy, probably the quietest beagle around.
While training, exercise, and play can decrease barking, any dog can develop nuisance barking if not taken care of and can get you in trouble with the rangers. Our solution to this is a good Bark Control Collar with the right features for your dog’s temperament and problem.
