I've always been surprised when Fancy barks. She's not a barker to begin with but when she does it's a deep "woof" and definately doesn't sound like its coming from a little 10lb dog.

How bout your Crestie? Whatcha got - woofs, yowls, yaps, or yips?

Mortisha  has quite a loud deep bark and she's pretty annoying too, because she knows what be quiet means but persists in having her say,   . Mischief rarely barks but it's fairly high pitched and she looks round, surprised as if to say, who did that.  :biggrin:

I was thinking of posting this exact thread yesterday! I was mulling over the same question because Akira has a deep bark too- you would think there was a border collie sized dog in the house when he barks, not a little one. He doesn't bark often, but is a super guard dog when the need arises and I think he'd keep an intruder out - as long as they couldn't actually see him lol!

 

...unless he was doing his growly bum tuck zoomies when they saw him -  now that would keep someone away... :laugh:  :laugh:

Jakks has a pretty good bark...enough to keep anyone out who shouldn't be in ....but it's the growly, bouncy, snarly stuff that accompanies the bark that really scares them off  !!! he looks like the Tasmanian devil  !

Max has his "daddy's home" high pitched bark, (almost in the register of a scream); of course, his scream; his "throw the toy now" that sounds like a normal bark; and then his "scare the pants off me when he does it growl/bark" he sounds like a rottweiler!


beware, for beyond there be dragons

Feylyn only barks if she is being told she's a naughty girl because she as misbehaved
Then she a medium sized dog bark. She has to have the last word
If she wants some thing it's more of a cry whine

Muffy is 20lb she has a nice deep woof. She sounds like a big dog. Ginger is 6lb so her bark is a yip. Unless there is a dog on the sidewalk out front in which case it's a high pitch very loud yappy scream. Penny is 10lb aND her bark is kinda screamy and if there is a stranger at or in the house she screams. No bark just screams.

Dizzy has the sort of piecing, shrieking bark that can shatter eardrums and glass. He also uses it at EVERY SINGLE POSSIBLE opportunity. I swear he will bark at a falling leaf. He is also perpetually determined to have the last word. No matter how firm/angry/loud/threatening you are with him, he ALWAYS has to let out one last bark after you finish speaking.

 

Lily's bark is softer and not so shrill, but she is almost as keen on using it as Dizzy. As soon as one barks, the other joins in.

 

Billy's bark is deeper than either of them. Although he will weigh in to back Dizzy up, he is normally less inclined to be noisy. He does, however, shriek with excitement when we start getting him ready for a walk.

 

Sapphire's bark is, surprisingly, the loudest and deepest of the lot. She doesn't bark very often, and each time it is a single, distinct bark. Sometimes she even looks shocked that such a loud noise came out of her mouth.

 

Rosie's bark sounds like someone coughing in another room. She is always both the last to join in with the barking, and the last to finish (often while facing in entirely the wrong direction). 

 

In the 8 years we've had her, I don't think we've ever heard Opal bark, beyond telling the others off for treading on her.


Put a sane man alone in a room with a teacosy, and it is only a matter of time until he puts it on his head.

all depends what the bark is for. his fear bark is the sound of the devil, his barking when hears noises goes through your whole body so so loud and annoying and constant. his barking when happy to see people is much nicer tho still loud but more high pitches and ends in a squeel. but if meets peopel he LOVES no barking just monkey screaming :P

You have just described it perfectly. That final, quiet bark - almost under his breath - that marks the end of each "discussion" with him.

I've often thought that when you describe Ginger's squealing!

She normally has a very good sense of direction, but I think the deafening cacophony of the others disorients her.

I'm also pretty certain that none of our pack are able to think and bark at the same time*.

 

(*Which is actually like most humans!)

Addy had a surprisingly authoritative bark.

Dora has the same authoritative tone, but higher in pitch. I don't think it has _quite_ the effect she thinks. :D

For all fancy and pretty Jezzie is she has the deepest bark of the cresties in my house.  Lily has what I guess you'd expect from a maltese/min schnauzer.  And then there is Tree, not only is he too pretty to be a boy he barks like a girl.  Probably why he insists on starting the barking, so he can prove he is a man. And the protector of the household.  Which he isn't.  that would be Lily, Tree is too loopy to be in charge of house protecting. ;)

My newest Crested's bark (guestimated at 2-1/5 years old and 12 lbs) sounds like a squeaky toy.  DD and I both laugh hysterically when we hear it.  And when he snarls, it sounds like wind blowing.  Since he came from a rescue, I initially was thinking he had his vocal cords cut (I don't think that was the case).  When my two other Cresteds bark unexpectedly, I jump out of my skin; but Bailey Biggs makes me laugh hysterically with his bark & snarls!  FYI, it does eventually get old.
