Weird question but are there any dog breeds that are notoriously quiet? I don't mean just barking. I kind of hate dog-noises, like whining and the weird heavy breathing a lot of them do. I'm used to cats. Most of the dogs I've met who were quiet were just like that as individuals so I'm not sure if there's any breeds that are more inclined to not make sounds.
Well my wife and I are in the market for something her daughter can exercise with, and the cat is a no-go. I also want a quiet pup because the neighborhood we live in is full of angry, old people
Golden Retrievers tend to not bark
much. Mine is practically mute, and I've heard similar things from other owners.
Big dogs are typically quiet.
But in general, all dogs are quiet if they're happy and not bored.
I've got a Boxer who whines my ear off if he hasn't been walked, but afterwards he's quiet as a mouse/only barks if somebody approaches the house
but that's sort of irrelevant, because I've taught him to do that and he's 9
How much space do you have OP? If you're looking for a dog to exercise with a bigger one would be ideal, but if you don't have a yard it'll feel cooped up right
You're dog is probably just like that. Golden Retrievers are nigger tier dogs, everyone I have met are aggressive, load assholes who try to rape or bite anything they come across.
I was walking my dogs and they ignore other dogs, my pointer is just so focused on walking he does not notice they are there yet he got tackled by a retriever today.
That may help barking but it won't do shit for breathing, panting, coughing, sneezing, snorting etc. They can still make noises without a voice box. There's no dog that will be silent unless you properly train it, but even then it could sneeze and clear sinuses etc. Also many vets won't remove voice box
>I just want to commit to an animal I don't like that will probably live 12+ years just to cross it off my bucket list.
Sounds a lot like you don't want a dog. Don't get a dog. Pet ownership isn't a fucking bucket list of stuff you want to own "for the experience"
