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
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.
