Bella barks when she wants to play, people have said how does that noise come out of such a cutie??! Brilliant for keeping away burglars, she sounds like a huge dog..... until they found out she'd lick them to death & that's it!

Sometimes at the park, I get a little embarrassed that my human kiddo is the loudest one there. I said something to my husband about it, and he just laughed at me and said, "He's playing outside at the park! This is the best place for him to be loud. Don't worry about it."

I think the same applies to dogs.

So many people don't seem to tolerate the noise of dogs or children playing any more.

I guess they don't expect your dog to poop either.

wow. this is funny. joey has just started going on his walks but he dont bark outside but inside wooooohooo he can bloody bark and moan...
He starts when i am busy with something and im ignoring him, when im on the phone which is the worst because whoever i am on phone to is non stop laughing as joey is howling in the background. also if his toy is stuck under the sofa, he barks non stop until i retrieve it for him. Hes the boss of this house!!! xx

I would find it odd if I were at a dog park and didn't hear dogs barking or baying. Same with kids playing outside.

Hi Bernie,

Well, surprise surprise Worm has the same problem! actually he started out pretty quiet as a puppy. sometime between age 1 and 2, he learned to really use his pipes, esp at the park!

of the 20-30 dogs that play there, yeah Worm's got a reputation as does his basset bud Mr. Bo. there is also our friend's golden retriever who barks and drives everyone crazy.

in this subculture, maybe because people are also trying to talk to each other and can't hear because of all the barking, everyone shushes everyone else's dogs. usually the dogs are allowed to go on awhile. but at some point it becomes a bit obnoxious, so it's 'quiet Worm!' or 'quiet Bo!' they usually want something or want attention, so giving them attention sometimes helps to stop it. anyway, again we all do it to each other, and Worm, Bo, and the retriever in particular get shushed. it's not a big deal and nobody takes it personally really, as far as i can tell.

i will start to tell Worm 'no bark' and put my hands around his muzzle and he knows what that means. or i say, 'good playing, but can you do that without barking?' lol, he knows what i mean!

we initially had to start doing this because in puppy classes the instructor didn't like him barking so much in class and at puppy playgroups. in fact, at some point, she had us use the muzzle as a training tool, or have him sit for time-outs in the puppy playgroups when he barked too much. she did want us to train it out of him. lol, we haven't worked that hard on it since, so he still does it quite a bit.

in Agility class, this instructor REALLY does not tolerate barking in class. lol, for Worm, it means more treats in his mouth-- that keeps him from barking, if you give them frequently enough. so he does not bark with me in Agility class. apparently he did when his Auntie took him and they got in trouble. and actually the instructor is really on a poodle for yip/barking throughout class, and is really getting on it's owner to work on getting some control of that. it is pretty distracting in Agility class, that is true.

anyway, so some thoughts on the matter...
