A canine giant, the Irish Wolfhound isn’t an excessive barker, but it will take over your comfy furniture and eat up your dog food budget.

If allowed or if ignored by your too-busy schedule, the Great Dane will develop an annoyingly attention-getting bark. However, this lovably large pup is generally not a nuisance barker.

Important note: Though some dog breeds are known for being less inclined to bark excessively, any dog can become a nuisance barker if it isn’t well-trained or it isn’t getting the attention it needs. If your dog is a compulsive barker, regardless of breed, talk to your vet or a dog training expert to determine the cause and find ways to help your pup understand there’s an appropriate time and place for barking (and constantly isn’t one of them).
