Ace- he's actually a pretty quiet dog, he will alert bark at things that are abnormal and if people or other dogs get too close to the yard
Dutchess- she is very quiet and typically only barks if the others are.
Lilly- Not much, but for some reason lately she likes to bark at the fans lol!
Roxy- She does her territory runs every time she goes out, she runs the fence line and barks and barks. And squirrels she loves to bark at them lol!
Gunner-he's a quiet one like most the others, he will alert bark though.
Sierra- everything, she barks if she's happy, upset, bored ect. She will run through the yard and bark at nothing then walk off when the other start barking, almost like a game for her.
Kiley- she's a very nervous fearful girl, so she will bark at just about everything and go on and on about it.
Courtney- anything small that moves, esp squirrels, cats, rabbits, small dogs.

Overall they are pretty quiet, they have their times they bark but they all mind well :)

Mine are very quiet inside the house, in back yard they will bark at a strange sound or object (squirrel, bunny, bird) within alert zone, within active zone they quietly kill it!

Off course both will bark if the active command is given.

Saga: Pretty much nothing. If I haven't paid enough attention to the poop stare, she might give me a little bwoof.

Nico: He didn't used to bark at anything, but now he will bark for his dinner or a toy.

Neither dog will bark at the door or pretty much anything else.

Fable is very vocal. She barks/whines/grunts/screeches when she wants something I have, when she's being restrained (seriously, she can't stand being forced to stand still), when she's playing, when I'm ignoring her, when it's time for dinner, etc., etc. She doesn't shut up.

Millie's an alert barker. She barks when there's someone in the yard, when she can see/hear coyotes, javelina and other dogs on the property, and when someone knocks on the door (though she always knows they're here before they get to the door).

Lucy was never much of a barker, but she went through a period when she'd suddenly startle and start barking and circling rocks and leaves, or even things in the house that were here before her and hadn't moved an inch.

When someone is at the door or she hears their car pull up. That's the only thing that makes Quinn bark, she is so quiet!

My two are both pretty quiet and are imrpving more and more on stopping when told. A really loud dog would drive me nute, Poppy drives me up the wall.

Rage barks at my boyfriend (he lives with us...), the garage door opening/closing (so pretty much any time I come or go and she's crated), skateboards/noisy strollers/kid cars on the sidewalk...

Liz barks when Rage barks, and usually will bark at strange stuff passing the fence all on her own. She also barks when we come home & she's been stuck out in the yard.

Daisy barks, rarely, during play and when we lock her in the bathroom & don't leave promptly.

Keena barks when we come home, and when we had the window of her room open she'd sit in it and bark at ALL the people/dogs/what have you that passed by the house.
