Which Dog Breeds Bark the Most

Let’s find out about the breeds that bark the most, so you are prepared if you decide to adopt one.

Some dog breeds bark more than others, although it is true that training and personality also affect this behavior.

In this article we will tell you about the dogs that bark the most. Through the bark, they can warn us if there is danger, if they want to play or if they are hungry.

However, when this sound is repetitive it can be quite tiring. Let’s find out about the breeds that bark the most,  so you are prepared if you decide to adopt one.

Which dogs bark the most?

In many cases, whether a dog barks more or less will depend on various factors, including the training it has received, its personality and even its level of dependence on the owner. Here is the list of breeds that bark the most:

1. Beagle

This medium-sized dog belonging to the hound group is known for its high energy and for spending time sniffing. Although it is a breed that barks a lot, it is the most chosen as a pet, mainly for apartment living.

The Beagle , in the photo that opens this article, is cheerful, affectionate and not at all aggressive, but a little shy with strangers.

He can be difficult to train and does not obey orders when he spots something that catches his attention. He gets bored easily and can engage in destructive behaviors when he is alone.

2. Fox terrier

Of English origin, like most Terriers ,  this breed can have a smooth or stiff coat and is characterized by an elongated muzzle.

As far as his temperament is concerned, the Fox Terrier is lively, cheerful, courageous, alert and active. Its bark occurs mainly when it finds something hidden that attracts it,  for example in a park or garden.

You have to consider that it was created to catch foxes in the fields and still retains this instinct.

3. West Highland White Terrier

Apparently, one of the terrier “flaws” is that they bark too much. In this case, it is a breed originating from the Scottish Highlands used to hunt rabbits, hares and birds.

The Westie, as it is popularly known, is completely white and its coat is matted.

The West Highland White Terrier is very tenacious and does not stop until it manages to capture the prey it has spotted.

It is said to have a strong temperament and, although due to its size it is suitable for living in small apartments, you must bear in mind that it does not like being alone and can bark a lot due to separation anxiety .

4. Miniature Schnauzer

This breed originated in Germany in the mid 19th century from the cross between a Schnauzer and a Miniature Pinscher. It is an alert, intelligent and purposeful animal, which can  bark excessively when it sees something moving suspiciously, due to its mouse-hunting instinct.

The Miniature Schnauzer has a compact build, long beard, thick eyelashes and a smooth coat of varying colors, mostly gray and black.

5. Yorkshire terrier

The last of the barking dogs on this list is another Terrier. Of British origin, this breed was very popular during the Victorian era. Today it is still in fashion due to its small size and because, given its size, it can be taken anywhere. This is why she is chosen by celebrities.

The Yorkshire Terrier is courageous, tenacious, very active, protective and independent. He loves being the center of attention: he is not a quiet companion dog.

He barks a lot whenever he notices something strange, which is why he can be chosen to guard the house. To prevent this from becoming a problem it is very important to train him from a puppy.

These are the dogs that bark the most, but not the only ones. We also remember the Poodle, the Pekingese, the Chihuahua , the Cairn Terrier and the Boston Terrier.
