What’s BPD? It’s Barks Per Day, according to Furbo, the company behind a pet treat-tossing camera. And the number of barks can reveal a lot.
Furbo released it’s 2018 list of the “naughtiest” and “nicest” dog breeds based on the number of barks the animals let out a day. If you are the owner of a Samoyed or Yorkshire Terrier, chances are your dog is barking when you’re not home.
As People Magazine reports: Based on the numbers gathered from Furbo users, Samoyed dogs bark the most, often up 52.8 times every day. The second chattiest canine, the Yorkshire Terrier, doesn’t come close to the Samoyed’s record… the little dogs bark about 23.6 times a day. Bernese Mountain Dogs, on the other paw, are the quietest of the dog breeds, and only let out about 3.1 barks per day.
The Naughtiest Dog Breeds (Most Barks Per Day)
- Samoyed – 52.8 barks
- Yorkshire Terrier – 23.6 barks
- Poodle – 22.2 barks
- Bichon Frise – 20.3 barks
- Doberman – 19.6 barks
The Nicest Dog Breeds (Least Barks Per Day)
- Bernese Mountain Dog- 3.1 barks
- West Highland Terrier – 3.5 barks
- Shetland Sheepdog – 6.1 barks
- American Staffordshire Terrier – 6.2 barks
- Shiba Inu – 8.1 barks
A final thought
So, as proud owners of two Bichon Frise dogs, which didn’t rank so well based upon BPD (Barks Per Day), we believe our pups speak in odd sentences all day long and we love to hear it all day long.
