There are a lot of people who love dogs and I am one of them. While I don’t currently own one (and probably won’t for a little while, but someday I hope), I did grow up with dogs when I was a kid. We had dalmatians, German shepherds, and golden retrievers, and they sparked my love for the larger dogs.
Some people choose a dog for their family based on their temperament, their look, their size, while others choose how vocal their dogs are. While it’s not always possible to predict if your dog will be a quiet or loud one, sometimes the breed can give some insight.
The people at VetStreet collected results from a survey they did where they asked 218 veterinary professionals which popular breeds they deemed most talkative in their experience.

Vet professional share the most talkative dog breeds in their experience.
Siberian Husky 2 of 7
This freindly breed likes to howl and sing and talk and it goes along with their happy personality
Alaskan Malamute 3 of 7
This dog is not only amazingly gorgeous, but fun to be around too. They love to dig and climb and howl with sirens or talk with you.
Chihuahua 4 of 7
Don't let their small size fool you -- these dogs love to hear their voice and can be quite nosiy if not trained properly.
Pomeranian 5 of 7
These adorable fluff-balls tend to think they're bigger than they are. While their bark isn't loud, it can be hard to get them to stop even with a lot of training.
Miniature Pinscher 6 of 7
These super cute dogs are known to make great watchdogs, but are also willful in nature and known to be on the talkative side
Beagle 7 of 7
He sings along to sirens and barks at strangers, but if you've trained them well and keep them busy, they shouldn't be an issue.
