It doesn't really bother me, but I hate being barked AT. Psyche will run outside, turn around, look right at me, and bark, and that annoys me... but if she's running and playing with the other dogs, barking, I don't care at all. Does this make me crazy? lol

I used to not care so much until I started working at a dog daycare/boarding facility. We have quite a few dogs that literally bark NON STOP!!! We have a poodle that comes in for daycare that will bark from the moment she is dropped off till the moment she is picked up. There have been so many days where I contemplate ripping her vocal cords from her throat lol. I already can't stand that dog... Her constant sharp barking makes me hate her that much more. I've literally wanted to up and quit at times when she is there just because I can't take it anymore.

I can't stand barky dogs. Barking a little in play is fine. Alert barking is fine to a degree. Whining is not ok. Bamm whines a ton and it drives me nuts. If you tell him to stop he just whines a little quieter which is just as annoying because quieter whining sounds like a constant whistling noise. Cricket alert barks to most noises she hears outside our apartment. We have to yell at her a lot to stop. She can be a quiet dog for the most part but she has a wide range of vocabulary and makes all sorts of odd noises when she wants to talk. That I don't mind at all and kind if find adorable at times.

ha ha Having terriers barking does not really bother me much. Im kinnda used to it since I've grown up with maniac barking terriers.

But I think its somthing the dogs needs to learn when I say "enough" it means the end of barking. Which i've been training Teagan to do and it works most of the time, unless she is having one of her dramatic barking freak outs, then there is not way to stop the beast.

Teagan is also very vocal ouside of barking. She is always making some kind of sound, which I actually enjoy. I like having conversations with my dog.

We had a Labradoodle at the daycare I worked at that spent half the day in "time out" because ALL he did was bark. OMG, high pitched barking that drove me INSANE! At least he learned that whenever the time out door opened it was for him and he'd gladly put himself into time out

I've often wondered if it would be considered cruel to equip boarding kennels with noise sensors, and if the dog barks for longer than two minutes while in the kennel they just start getting zapped through the floor.

High pitched barking does bother me, maybe if I lived with a small dog for awhile I could get over it. But excessive shrill barking is just too much for me right now. Other than that, 'talking' and such does not bother me. Blue used to talk all the time and Sam whines when he's nervous, really excited, impatient, or if he wants something really bad. Usually talking to him will get him to stop and he doesn't do it as often now.

Absolutely. Bark if there's a good reason, otherwise, shut your pie hole.

We live in town, there is ALWAYS going to be neighbors, cars, other dogs, cats, birds, squirrels, city workers, etc coming and going at all hours. Get used to it. My dogs learn from day one here, you can stare menacingly out the window and try to blow them up with your brain..........but NO BARKING unless they are actually on OUR property. Period. It's actually funny to watch Orson watching someone else walk their dog. He stares out the window and as soon as they get to "our" sidewalk, Orson carries on and barks at them...........once they are passed our house, he shuts it and stares at them with death rays, ROFL

There is a little dog (poodle mix?) across the street..........OMG that thing never shuts up, and it's a high pitched bark *shivers* I don't know how it has an intact throat left! I do hear various other neighbor dogs whether inside their house or backyard who bark over every little thing........it is annoying, and I can only imagine how annoying it would be to live with them.

I am very proud to say more than one of my neighbors have told me they would never know I had dogs if they didn't see them with their own eyes. I take that as a compliment

Drives me nuts. Which makes me wonder why we have a thing for hounds lol. Our dogs are barkers and it drives me CRAZY. Hannah hates it too.

Beezers bark is especially bad. it's high pitched and he barks all the time at NOTHING. If we are running around the house with Hannah... BARK BARK BARK. let him outside... BARK BARK BARK. he might see a shadow or his reflection in the sliding glass door... BARK BARK BARK.

OMG SHUT UP!!!!!!!! lol

I don't tolerate barking for no reason. That kind of thing drives me up the wall. Unless there is somebody at the door (and even then, they need to quiet when I tell them to after a couple barks) or they are outside playing (indoor playing needs to be quiet - there are people trying to sleep sometimes! Inside voice! Play-growling doesn't count) or I ask them to "speak," I require them to be pretty quiet.

Also, whining in the car drives me up the wall. Eevee does it sometimes and I tell her to shush.

OMG yes. This is what Eevee does. It's like the dog version of a little kid holding a finger an inch from my face and going "I'm not touching you... I'm not touching youuuuu..." DX

Also this.

I have to add though, that other peoples' dogs being vocal doesn't really bother me (unless it's in my house at 4 in the morning and I'm trying to sleep). That's their thing to deal with, and I'm not gonna whine about it. =P

Oh yes, Cheetah mentioned something else that is a MUST here.

If there is company, someone at the door, or any reason.........once I say "QUIET" That means "I've got this, thanks for the warning but now stop the noise" if Orson doesn't cease and desist, you can betcha he's going for a time out
