8 Quiet Dog Breeds That Rarely Bark



  1. Bernese Mountain Dog

2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel 


Cavaliers are the best of two worlds, combining the gentle attentiveness of a toy breed with the verve and athleticism of a sporting spaniel. And of course, they rarely make a peep.


3. French Bulldog


The bright, affectionate Frenchie is a charmer. Dogs of few words, Frenchies don't bark much, but their alertness makes them excellent watchdogs. Their playful nature doesn't manifest in barking either.


4. Bulldog


You can't mistake a Bulldog for any other breed. The beefier pups won't pipe up too often since they're perfectly content to keep snoozing on the sofa. 


5. Shiba Inu


Today, the spirited, good-natured Shiba is the most popular companion dog. Typically Shiba Inus are not the most vocal or "yappiest" of dog breeds. The canines stay pretty mum — until they engage in the occasional "Shiba scream."


6. Australian Shepherd


Aussies are remarkably intelligent. They will alert their owners when they think something requires their attention, but they're unlikely to start barking up a storm at nothing in particular.


7. Shih Tzu


weighing between 9 to 16 pounds the Shih Tzu is known to be especially affectionate with children. While small breeds tend to have a reputation for yappiness, that's not universally true. historically shih Tzu lived with Chinese royalty. 


8. Irish Setter


The Irish Setter's have a lovable personality. These beautiful red-coated setters are hunting dogs, not guard dogs, so their vocalizations tend to be limited to tracking down their prey.
