Do Bracco Italiano's bark like a hound dog all day?

The Bracco Italiano breed was bred for hunting. So they do have an impressive bark/howl. But they are not known for doing it all day long at nothing. However, they are known to get bored and will bark/howl at nothing if they are. They will also alert you and your neighbor's to any other people in the area, animals and anything else they feel they need to alert you about. It is up to you, the owner, to train the dog what is to be alerting too and what is not.
