Napoleon Complex

 

Big dogs don't bark as much/aren't as aggressive because they know they're big and so they don't feel like they have to do anything to assert their presence.

 

Alternatively, I have a joke explanation that I've used that all dogs, regardless of breed, have the same amount of energy/neuroticism in them.  However, in big dogs it has more room to move around within the dog's body, while in smaller dogs it bounces around in them much faster and makes them jumpy, crazy, and vocal.

     Usually it's because the owners treat the dogs like babies instead of dogs. If you keep carrying it around like a fashion accessory the dog isn't able to socialize like a normal dog, so they become neurotic and aggressive to anything they feel might threaten them or their immediate family..

Dogs are protective. They bark to alert the "pack"

I don't know but my wife has a Teacup Chihuahua and that little thing, thinks he is a pit bull. He isn't scared of anything. Could be that they think they have to act this way to protect themselves.

Sorry for late reply, but I have a pitty, she doesn't bark. The reason I asked, is that she gets aggressive towards them, i am afraid she will eat one at some point. Neighbor's dog, comes outside to pee/kaka and just start barking for no reason. annoying as hell.

If you want a quiet dog, consider a rescue/retired Greyhound.

My guess is that it's how they've been bred.

This. 

 

Despite their potential for short bursts of speed, they are primarily lapdogs. I have yet to pet a greyhound, but I will one day do so.

Try a Yorkie. 

 

Personally I would love to have a trained skunk that would spray upon command.  That will keep the noisy neighbors away and if a burglar comes and gets sprayed the police would be able to find them easily.

My neighbors leave their windows open all the time, and their little yipyip sits by the window all day waiting for the slightest noise so it can spaz out (and then set off the other two yipyips next door to them). If he hears me open my back door, all three of the start barking, and it goes on for hours since apparently no one besides me seems to care about the noise. I've been tempted to put some sort of noisemaker out there and see just how long I can keep them all barking at each other.
