Is a dog's barking behavior due more to genetics or environment? Do certain breeds bark more ?


The pit bull mix stray who adopted me never barks. He howled like a wolf into the ravine behind my house the moment I met him. His howl was answered by another howl. He has never barked even ONCE since that day. He makes a little squeak sometimes and hits the door with his paw when he wants to go out.
