6 Most Talkative Dog Breeds

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.

    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.
