While some people seek quiet canine companions, other dog owners prefer a pup with something to say. And these dogs have plenty to talk about! We asked 218 veterinary professionals which popular breeds they deemed most talkative, and these 12 were at the top of the list. Although it's important to keep in mind that many dogs can be louder than average if allowed to become nuisance barkers, these dogs are known for being rather vocal. Did your favorite talkative dog make the list? No. 12: Bloodhound
is probably most recognizable as the baying dog hot on the heels of the dastardly criminal in the movies. But at her core, she’s sweet and lovable, even if she does produce more drool than you’ll ever be able to mop up. Her man-trailing ability is so great that her “testimony” has even been accepted in select court cases. Like the other dogs who made this list, she needs to be well-trained and kept entertained in order to stop her from barking out of boredom.
