Ever wonder what your pets do when you aren’t home? If you are the owner of a Newfoundland or Chinese Shar-Pei, chances are your dog is barking.

Furbo, the company behind this smart phone-connected, treat-tossing dog camera, released its 2018 list of the “naughtiest” and “nicest” dog breeds based on the number of barks the animals let out a day.

Furbo is able to get an idea of these numbers thanks to its product, which can alert owners via a phone notification that their dog is barking. This allows pet parents to check in on their pets through the app connected to the Furbo camera.

Based on the numbers gathered from Furbo users, Newfoundland dogs bark the most, often up to 50-plus times every day. Samoyeds, on the other paw, are the quietest of the dog breeds, and are 26 times less likely to bark than a Newfoundland.
