15 Dog Breeds That Hardly Ever Bark

We have prepared a list of 15 dog breeds that hardly ever bark. Loud dogs do have their advantages — dogs with big barks are awesome for chasing away intruders for example — but more often than not, a sweet dog who quietly keeps you company is ideal. It’s not that we don’t love chatty breeds with tons of personality, but dogs that bark their butts off can be a deal-breaker.

#1 Bernese Mountain Dog

Bernese Mountain Dog

The Bernese mountain dog is originally a working breed found on Swiss farms, the gentle giants now work well with young families thanks to their even-keeled nature. They will play favorites though, often becoming attached to one person in particular. This dog might not be the most suitable to new dog owners since this dog has A LOT of energy, which can make it difficult to train them for inexperienced dog owners.

If you are not fond on big dogs like this breed, you should take a look at the next breed!
