Top 10 Quietest Dog Breeds

Hi, welcome to Animal Fa [barking] Animal
Fac … Hey hush, I’m trying to do a video in here. We love dogs, but there are times when constant
barking isn’t desirable. Say you live in an apartment or let’s face
it, barking can drive you insane. Let’s explore some quiet, cuddly companions. Let’s get started. But, before we start, take a moment to like
and subscribe for more fun, fauna facts. 10. Whippet Sometimes called the “poor man’s Greyhound”
the Whippet is an elegant couch potato, who happens to be able to run at speeds up to
35 miles per hour. He’s intelligent, and rarely barks, as he
rarely feels the need to expend the energy. His lack of barkiness and overall laziness
make the Whippet an excellent breed for apartment dwellers. If you like this video, check out how to support
us down in the description. 9. Saluki Like the Whippet, the Saluki is a sighthound. The Saluki is a social dog that doesn’t
look for reasons to bark. Sometimes called the Persian Greyhound, he’s
quietly reserved with strangers. Indoors, the Saluki will make himself at home
on your soft sofa or bed. He likes his comforts and needs cushioning
for his somewhat bony body. Outdoors, well, he’s not to be trusted off-leash. He has a strong drive to chase other critters
and at speeds at up to 43mph, your chances of catching him are slim. 8. Saint Bernard Say ya wanna big dog that feels very little
need to bark. The cuddly Saint Bernard might be the social
and affectionate dog for you. He may bark at strangers if not socialized
as a puppy, but generally, he grows to love everyone he meets. He doesn’t bark much, but you’ll know
when he does. 7. Newfoundland The Newfoundland is another giant breed that
is known for his calm, collected temperament and for not barking without reason. The Newfoundland is a large, strong dog breed
from — wait for it — Newfoundland, an island off the east coast of Canada, where
he was originally bred to pull fishing nets for fishermen and to pull carts. Sweet-natured and responsive, he makes a wonderful
family companion. If you’re looking for a friendly dog that
can still act as a deterrent due to his massive size, the Newfoundland may be for you. 6. Italian Greyhound Yet another sighthound on our list. I think we might have a trend here. The smallest of the sighthounds, the Italian
Greyhound is a nice smaller breed that is not known to be a nuisance barker. In fact, Italian Greyhounds are somewhat easily
stressed and prefer a quiet household themselves. Probably not the right dog for my home for
his sake. Despite his mild nature, he has a surprisingly
deep, big-dog bark, making him a good watchdog. Although he lacks the size to back up his
barks. 5. Collie The beautiful Collie is very rarely a nuisance
barker. In fact, even Lassie only barked when she
really had something important to say. “What’s that girl, Timmy fell down the
well? I get back with ya on that.” The Collie is a sensitive and intelligent
dog, known for his undying loyalty and amazing ability to foresee his owner’s needs. He is a great family companion and is still
a capable herding dog and quite the actor if ya ask me. 4. Chinese Shar-Pei The wrinkly Chinese Shar-Pei is generally
lazy, although he was originally bred as a guard dog in ancient China. He rarely barks without purpose. If he feels worried or threatened, he’ll
let you know. Otherwise, it’s just not worth the effort. He’s calm enough that he can live in an
apartment. He’s not overly affectionate and sometimes
aloof. 3. Borzoi Ahh, another sighthound. The large Russian Borzoi is a relatively ancient
breed of dog. Fortunately for those looking for a quiet
dog, the Borzoi is relatively complacent around the home. He can’t be trusted for the duty of barking
at strangers, so you should probably look elsewhere for a guard dog. He also tends to be nervous around children
and will chase anything that moves. So he might not be the right breed for those
with small children and small pets. 2. Bernese Mountain Dog A giant breed, the Bernese Mountain Dog is
a mostly silent dog. He’s quite docile. He loves to meet new people and spend his
time as a social butterfly. But, his not so small size is often a deterrent
for strangers. We publish every Monday and Friday. So, hit that notification icon to not miss
a single fact. 1. Basenji Guess there is no better dog to finish this
list than a dog that doesn’t bark at all. The Basenji is actually known for his inability
to bark. That’s right. He doesn’t bark at all. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t make any
noise – he yodels. Yup. But, he only yodels when there is a good reason. All that sounds attractive, but research the
Basenji before acquiring one or you may be disappointed or frustrated when you aren’t
prepared for the Basenji’s unique temperament and personality. He’s intelligent, but stubborn – very
stubborn and he is not a dog that can be described as “aims to please”. The Basenji is also a notorious escape artist. He is not a dog for anyone less than a highly
experienced dog owner. All this said, most dog breeds can be trained
not to nuisance bark. Most dogs that bark for no reason do it out
of boredom. Hey there guys, thanks for checking out the

  • Are you kidding, collies bark their heads off. Basenji's don't bark, but don't really make good pets as they are a hunting dog. They they can climb trees. You just can't keep them in.
