Dogs are reliable companions with their own unique characteristics and abilities. Among the variety of dog breeds and personalities, there are representatives that do not express their emotions in the traditional way - by barking. UAportal has prepared a list of their advantages and disadvantages to help you make the right choice.

Advantages of dogs that do not bark

  • Improved communication

Dogs that do not bark have the ability to communicate using alternative methods. These include sign language or special buttons, which opens up new avenues for better understanding between dogs and their owners.

  • Increased opportunities for attachment

Teaching non-speaking dogs to communicate helps to strengthen the bond between them and their owners. The shared affection and teamwork involved in training and learning new communication methods creates a more emotional bond.

  • Independence and empowerment

Giving non-barking dogs a means to express their needs and wants gives them a sense of control and independence. This can lead to increased confidence and overall well-being.

Disadvantages of no-barking dogs

  • Limited vocabulary

Although non- barking dogs can communicate effectively, their vocabulary is often limited to a set of predefined sounds or gestures. This can limit the complexity of their communication and interaction with their owner.

  • Barrier to communication with other dogs

Dogs that do not bark may have difficulty interacting and communicating with other dogs that are not trained in the same communication system. This can lead to misunderstandings in different situations.

  • Dependence on training

Non-barking dogs rely heavily on their skills to communicate their needs effectively. If they are not constantly exposed to communication system training, they will have difficulty expressing themselves, which can lead to frustration for both the dog and its owner.
