Samoyeds Are Named the Naughtiest Dog Breed of 2018

November 13, 2018

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 13, 2018--Furbo Dog Camera, the world’s first treat-tossing camera designed just for dogs, today released the results of Santa’s Naughty or Nice List: Doggo Edition. Furbo analyzed data from more than 15,000 pups over the course of a week to see what they’re doing when their humans aren’t around to uncover which dog breeds were most likely to get coal in their stocking this holiday season.

“While doggy moms and dads all suspect they know what goes on when they’re not looking, we decided to help Santa with some hard data,” said Victor Chang, CEO of Furbo Dog Camera. “By seeing which dogs are the most naughty, we’re helping both Santa and pet parents figure out who is and isn’t getting peanut butter in their toys this Christmas.”

Without further ado - Santa’s Naughty or Nice List: Doggo Edition winners are:

Samoyeds top the naughty list, averaging 52 barks each day while their parents are out!

Samoyeds may be the naughtiest, but Yorkshire Terriers are a close second with more than 23 barks per day.

The Bernese Mountain Dog top the nicest list, averaging only 3 barks per day! That’s 17 times fewer than Samoyeds.

The scientists at Furbo HQ are unable to point to hard data that indicates why this is, instead believing it’s because Bernese Mountain Dogs are so darned cute.
