Greyhounds are usually very quiet dogs, mainly because they're sleeping most of the time!

Obviously, it's not the Rattles on the other thread.

Along with the breed I also think it has to do with what noises a dog is use to. I lived in an apartment with my dog who is a Ducth Shepard/Cattle Dog cross and he was very quiet when I was away. I got him at 4 months and he grow up with the noises in the hallways. The times he did bark was when he had energy and needed to get out and play. I lived in more of a garden home where its 3 floors and only 4 aparments to the floor so there was very minimual traffic in the hallway for Duke to get barky at to begin with. Take that into consideration as well. Are your hallways constantly busy during the day which will cause the dog to be more on alert or are they quiet. The dogs that lived in the apartments where I use to live that where quiet, I dont know much about breeds that are prone to bark, but the ones that where quiet where, my neighbour who had a lab and hed only bark when the door from the stairs opened but it was one bark and stopped, then my b/f has a french mastiff and he's really quiet and only lets out little woofs every now and then when kids are running down the hall but on the other hand my b/fs friend has his dogs sister from the same litter and she gets into barking fits when hes gone sometimes, then there was a boxer that did wonderful. Bunch of mutts. But I really think alot is to do with the dog and whats its use to noise wise and also how territorial the dog is. Also its about your neighbours. Some neighbours dont mind a bark here or there as long as its not constant and too later but others with the slittest sounds will complain. Sorry the post was so long. Good luck finding whatever dog suits you best.

Answer: NOT Collies! Especially not if you include the Chewbacca noises, the foghorn noises, and the moans.

I've known a couple of Shih tzus and they were both quiet dogs. I think the Pug sounds like a good dog for an apartment.

My Chihuahuas are very quiet unless someone is at the door, drives up the driveway, seen on a walk, when the UPS man is here, when I stomp my snow off my boots outside the door, when a coffee up is set down too hard in another room, when another dog barks on TV. LOL. When they're just hanging out and nothing happens, they're quiet as a mouse. And they're good about stopping when I tell them "enough." Well, Chulita is really good. Jose` is not perfect.

My Doberman doesn't bark unnecessarily. But my son's dog barks the most of all of our dogs. She is worse than my Chi's and she's a GSD-Pit mix, we think. She has yet to be taught better that she doesn't have to react to every little thing. She has the most abrupt and loud bark. She will stop when you ask her to, but my goodness and then she starts again. It's quite annoying.

Definitely. I can attest to that. When I first visited my daughter's apartment in Seattle, the dogs barked at all kinds of noises....neighbors closing their doors, people talking and walking on the street below, traffic, car alarms.... These things do NOT happen where we live. But as I visited a few more times and even though I only go there about 4 times a year, they are onto the idea that it is normal there for these noises but it would not be normal here. And they're all relatively quiet when we visit, thank goodness.

Please enlighten me!

Yes. A quiet dog is a dog who is eating.
