Top 10 Quietest Dog Breeds
Hi, welcome to Animal Fa [barking] Animal
Fac … Hey hush, I’m trying to do a video
We love dogs, but there are times when constant
barking isn’t desirable.
Say you live in an apartment or let’s face
it, barking can drive you insane.
Let’s explore some quiet, cuddly companions.
Let’s get started.
But, before we start, take a moment to like
and subscribe for more fun, fauna facts.
Sometimes called the “poor man’s Greyhound”
the Whippet is an elegant couch potato, who
happens to be able to run at speeds up to
35 miles per hour.
He’s intelligent, and rarely barks, as he
rarely feels the need to expend the energy.
His lack of barkiness and overall laziness
make the Whippet an excellent breed for apartment

Like the Whippet, the Saluki is a sighthound.
The Saluki is a social dog that doesn’t
look for reasons to bark.
Sometimes called the Persian Greyhound, he’s
quietly reserved with strangers.
Indoors, the Saluki will make himself at home
on your soft sofa or bed.
He likes his comforts and needs cushioning
for his somewhat bony body.
Outdoors, well, he’s not to be trusted off-leash.
He has a strong drive to chase other critters
and at speeds at up to 43mph, your chances
of catching him are slim.
Say ya wanna big dog that feels very little
need to bark.
The cuddly Saint Bernard might be the social
and affectionate dog for you.
He may bark at strangers if not socialized
as a puppy, but generally, he grows to love
everyone he meets.
He doesn’t bark much, but you’ll know
when he does.
The Newfoundland is another giant breed that
is known for his calm, collected temperament
and for not barking without reason.
The Newfoundland is a large, strong dog breed
from — wait for it — Newfoundland, an
island off the east coast of Canada, where
he was originally bred to pull fishing nets
for fishermen and to pull carts.
Sweet-natured and responsive, he makes a wonderful
If you’re looking for a friendly dog that
can still act as a deterrent due to his massive
size, the Newfoundland may be for you.
Yet another sighthound on our list.
I think we might have a trend here.
The smallest of the sighthounds, the Italian
Greyhound is a nice smaller breed that is
not known to be a nuisance barker.
In fact, Italian Greyhounds are somewhat easily
stressed and prefer a quiet household themselves.
Probably not the right dog for my home for
Despite his mild nature, he has a surprisingly
deep, big-dog bark, making him a good watchdog.
Although he lacks the size to back up his
The beautiful Collie is very rarely a nuisance
In fact, even Lassie only barked when she
really had something important to say.
“What’s that girl, Timmy fell down the
I get back with ya on that.”
The Collie is a sensitive and intelligent
dog, known for his undying loyalty and amazing
ability to foresee his owner’s needs.
He is a great family companion and is still
a capable herding dog and quite the actor
if ya ask me.
The wrinkly Chinese Shar-Pei is generally
lazy, although he was originally bred as a
guard dog in ancient China.
He rarely barks without purpose.
If he feels worried or threatened, he’ll
let you know.
Otherwise, it’s just not worth the effort.
He’s calm enough that he can live in an
He’s not overly affectionate and sometimes
Ahh, another sighthound.
The large Russian Borzoi is a relatively ancient
breed of dog.
Fortunately for those looking for a quiet
dog, the Borzoi is relatively complacent around
He can’t be trusted for the duty of barking
at strangers, so you should probably look
elsewhere for a guard dog.
He also tends to be nervous around children
and will chase anything that moves.
So he might not be the right breed for those
with small children and small pets.
Bernese Mountain Dog
A giant breed, the Bernese Mountain Dog is
a mostly silent dog.
He’s quite docile.
He loves to meet new people and spend his
time as a social butterfly.
But, his not so small size is often a deterrent

Guess there is no better dog to finish this
list than a dog that doesn’t bark at all.
The Basenji is actually known for his inability
He doesn’t bark at all.
That doesn’t mean he doesn’t make any
noise – he yodels.
But, he only yodels when there is a good reason.
All that sounds attractive, but research the
Basenji before acquiring one or you may be
disappointed or frustrated when you aren’t
prepared for the Basenji’s unique temperament
He’s intelligent, but stubborn – very
stubborn and he is not a dog that can be described
as “aims to please”.
The Basenji is also a notorious escape artist.
He is not a dog for anyone less than a highly
experienced dog owner.
All this said, most dog breeds can be trained
not to nuisance bark.
Most dogs that bark for no reason do it out
