Default do your dogs bark?
our dog pilot never barks, even when she was a puppy. on occasion she will do a very very soft growl if she hears someone outside, but other than that she doesn't make a peep. we never trained her to do this but we really like it. we were surprised too that our new puppy never barks either. when he plays with pilot he will growl a lot (pilot stays completely silent) but other than that he is also super quiet. even when all the other dogs in the neighborhood are barking or a siren or ambulance goes off they still just sit there.

is this a breed thing? do pit bulls tend to be quiet? or did we just get lucky twice?

Diesel rarely barks...but you will notice it when he does! He is not very vocal at all.

He does get fired up around cattle and horses tho...you will definitely hear him then!

Maggie will bark at cats and strangers but if another dog is around she won't make a sound.

Brutus rarely barks. The only time he barks is when he is playing with another dog. I wish he would bark when someone knocks at the door or pulls up in the driveway, he has a surprisingly deep bark for a pup!

It takes a LOT to get Ruger to bark... unless we're in the truck and you start screaming, "SQUIRREL!!" LOL then he'll go off. He'll let out a bark or two if he's trying to a dog into playing with him and he gets SUPER frustrated that they're ignoring him... and he'll bark at dirt bikes if he can't chase them, and sometimes at flyball practice when he wants to run.

In the house, or under 'calm' circumstances he doesn't bark.

Gaud.... I have the most obnoxious household right now. The only one that generally doesn't bark is Arez. The rest of them though, barking, whining, yodeling, screaming...

Diesel(doberman) barks alot if hes playing with Thor. Its almost the only time he barks but its a very deep big dog sounding bark. Thor rarely if ever barks. Sometimes he will bark if hes startled and its a really high pich squeeky bark. By looking at thor you would be surprised to hear his bark because it dosent match at all. Ive probably heard Thor bark maybe 7 times.

Tinkerbell barks at every moving thing.. (bypassers, cats, leaves, paper rolling by, even her own tail)

Rajah use to not bark at all.. but here the past 2 weeks.. wow - he has really began to greet our guests with a bark and then jumps in their laps.. other than that and by passers, hes very quiet

Neither of my guys bark unless theres a reason. If someone knocks on the door or comes in the house, they both bark.

They alert bark and Riley will bark when playing with other dogs, but that's about it.

Oh, sometimes Bubba will bark at the dark...

My household is the same way. The only one that does not bark is Queen.


Even the cats walk around meowing.

Odie only barks when someone knocks or walks in the house, just one or two barks to say hey! If he's getting "HOT" then he'll bark. He'll also bark at the neighbors but only when my daughter is outside with him. Kinda protective about his little girl. Not that he's mean, just barks to look scary.

Tinkerbell probably is rubbing off on him. my sister had a dog that wasnt a barker and then she moved back in with my folks and they have a dog that is always barking and now her dog does the same.

Ginger never barked when she was an only dog...it is one of the unfortunate habits she picked up from my roomie's dog. Thankfully she only barks when one of first comes home or when a visitor shows up and then it is only for a minute or so. I feel like at least she might scare away an unwanted visitor. However, when the biggest most intimidating dude made it all the way to the door both dogs were calm as could be and never made a peep.
