The Five Most Dramatic Dog Breeds, According to Science

Ugh, these doggos are such drama queens.

By Brienne Walsh

If you took a look at this post's title and asked yourself, “How can a dog be dramatic?” well, then, you’ve clearly never had a dog. Dogs are made for drama. Their entire freaking lives are about performance: Perform so the human will feed them. Perform so the human will play. Perform so that the human will let them sleep under the covers even though they’re supposed to be in their crate. Perform so that the human knows that, no matter how in control they think they are, they still have to pick up the dog’s poop with their hand.

Hell, a dog can be more dramatic than The Real Housewives of New York’s Luann de Lesseps when NO ONE REALIZES SHE JUST GOT MARRIED. And then divorced. But that’s a different story.

A dog can be more dramatic than Flipping Out’s Jeff Lewis when Zoila WILL NOT PICK UP HIS PHONE CALLS.

A dog can be more dramatic than Vanderpump RulesJax Taylor when NO ONE MAKES HIM A SANDWICH.

A dog can be more dramatic than Shahs of Sunset’s Reza Farahan BASICALLY EVERY WAKING MOMENT .

Okay, you get the point. Scroll through for the top five most dramatic dog breeds according to veterinarians. 


Dachshunds are one of the most vocal dog breeds, often barking about nothing at all. Sound like any Housewives you know?

Sweet dreams cuties 😘💙

Pugs are in desperate need of their humans' attention at all time. If you dare get distracted by something else, they'll go out of their way to make sure you see they're RIGHT. THERE. WAITING. FOR. YOU.

Beagles are one of the most stubborn breeds on the block. Ever try to walk with a Beagle and have hims top at every single tree? We dare you to try reasoning with that.

Many people refer to Chihuahuas as drama queens—they just love to react to every tiny thing that happens around them. But the good news is that it's usually just because they're protective and want to make sure that their human is safe.

Basset Hound

Remember what we told you about the Beagle? Multiply that about ten-fold. (Get it? Because Basset hounds are like Beagles with lots of folds?) Take that stubborn streak and add those big brown eyes, and you're toast.
