Did You Ever Wonder How Dogs Speak?

Translating How Dogs Speak with Renowned Dog Trainer Bash Dibra!

 

The Bark Says—

  • A loud, repeated bark, sometimes accompanied by a growl or snarl: conveys aggression or dominance. (“Get away from here or I’ll bite you!”)
  • Sharp, short barks: alert to intruders or danger (“What? What? What?”)
  • A light, high-pitched bark: an invitation to interact or play. (“Come on out and play!”)
  • A low moaning-type bark: signifies anxiety. (“Who’s out there?”)
  • Short, high-pitched yips: excitement, eagerness, friendliness, or curiosity. (“Hi! Hi! Hi!”)

 

The Growl Says—

  • A deep, low growl emanating from the chest and progressing to a snarl: conveys aggression (“I’m warning you!”)
  • A low, assertive growl: indicates dominance. (“Get out of my yard!”)
  • A low, whining growl: shows worry or fear. (“Please don’t come any closer!”)
  • Soft, low growling: a play signal. (“I’ve got the ball.  See if you can take it!”)

 

The Howl Says—

  • A long, sustained rising howl: usually conveys fear or anxiety, as with a dog left alone. (“Where are you? Come back!”)
  • A short, happy howl: indicates an emotional greeting. (“Wow! It’s great to see you!”) This howl is common with northern breeds such as huskies.
  • A “bay”: the howl of a hound at chase (“We’ve spotted the fox!”); a victorious howl (“Come on! We’ve found it!”).
  • A sustained howl in unison with the sound of a siren (“Must be something to wail about.”) or a musical instrument or a choral pack response. (“For we are jolly good fellows!”)

 

The Whine says—

  • A long whine, rising in pitch:  indicates anxiety or fear. (“I’m scared!”)
  • A low whine: serves as an alert. (“Listen, something’s out there!”)
  • A short, worried whine: can take place during flight.  (“Leave me alone, leave me alone!”)
  • Low, worried whining: indicates submission or subordinate rank. (“Don’t hurt me.  I surrender.”)
  • Short, eager whines: curiosity, excitement, or an invitation to play. (“Come on! I can’t wait!”)
  • A screaming whine: used when a dog is being beaten by a dominant dog. (“Please! I can’t take any more!”)
  • A loud, screaming whine: indicates pain or injury.  (“Stop! It hurts!”)
