What breed of small dog barks less frequently ?

Asked by Aster (19546points) September 11th, 2013

I was wondering, being owned by two bichons that bark a lot and very loudly , what breed that is under twenty five pounds barks the least?

My rat terrier doesn’t bark much.

There are variations in every breed, but as a gross generalization, I’ve found frenchies and cavaliers to be fairly quiet small dogs (of course, both breeds have genetic predispositions to various health issues).

My dachshund mix barks little, unless someone enters the apartment or knocks on the door.

Basenjis don’t have the ability to bark, and they’re anywhere from 19–26 lbs. I hear they don’t give off much dander or dog odor either. They are very independent and mischievous, though.

I’ve inherited my daughter’s mini Aussie- she isn’t terribly barky although if someone is here that she doesn’t know, she can be hard to shut up.

Basenji are supposed to be barkless. A co-worker has one and says it does a little yodel type of thing when excited. Pretty cute dog.

The Italian greyhounds I’ve known were completely silent.

Getting a Shih-tzu – Havanese mix on Friday. He seemed quiet when I interviewed him.
