I love dogs, and there are few breeds I am not attracted to. I even like tiny dogs. But why oh why do so many of them have to constantly bark in such an annoying ‘yappy’ fashion?
Some of the worst offenders include these breeds.
Pomeranian. (Sorry Kim)
My uncle had one of these for years. It would sit on his shoulder and yap constantly at anyone who came into the house. It could never be silenced, making conversation almost impossible.
One of my fellow dog walkers owns one, and it never stops yapping at everyone and every dog it sees. He has to resort to holding its mouth shut.
These tiny dogs like to be heard. They yap for attention, yap at people walking toward them, and yap at any dog they don’t know.
Perhaps being so low to the ground makes them nervous, but the miniature variety of this breed is also famous for constantly yapping.
Other well-known ‘Yappers’ include Yorkshire Terriers and Jack Russell Terriers. I really like all of these breeds. They have great personalities, and also make very loyal companions.
But I don’t like that yapping!
