OK, hands up. How many of you have a Cav that
-barks properly

-woos


-both?

Holly has never 'woo'ed. She always barks- just a case of learning the different tones of the bark, but it's a 'big dog bark' if that makes sense. Proper barking- not yapping, except when she wants to play.

Amber yips and yaps at her toys with the occassional 'woo woo woo WOOOOO'- which was quite a shock the first time we heard it. Is this something some Cavs do- in my pic thread, Cathy says that Shelby 'woos'. I take it it's not always puppy behaviour then???

Just, it's so funny to hear the different kinds of vocalisations!

Izzy has the meanest bark of any dog I know.

It takes alot to make Spencer make a peep, but when he does, he is strictly a wooer, and it is so long and drawn out that he usually only does one. :sl*p:

Rudee used to bark to get my attention and woo woo woo if she was giving out to me!

It's the woo woo woo that I miss most of all... Cavaliers are wonderful comminicators. If you talk to them the will always respond and I especially love it when they see a bird or a cat, you just hear a low grrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ooooooooooo woo wooo woo woo woof! woof! woof! woof! :D

Karlin's Jaspar is a wonderful chatterbox...I could listen to him all day!!!!!

Yes, that sounds like Amber all right. Holly just growls quietly and persistently before telling that nasty dog/cat/person/horse (i kid you not- there's some guy around here who takes his horse for a walk at night. In the middle of the city :yikes )/buggy/ wheelchair- you get the idea :D :D - where to go. Amber doesn't seem interested in externals so far.

LOL funny question.. Kosmo will WOO WOO if he sees someone outside. it's the funniest thing because we have wood floors in our house and he will woo soo loudly and with so much strength that his little legs slide all over the floor and he has a hard time keeping ground. He ALWAYS howls and woos at the first of his bark and then it turns into a bark bark bark.. He has several different barks though.. it's pretty funny actually! :P

Bella is very vocal. We get lots of growling, woo-ing and finally graduating up to a real bark complete with jowl quivering lol

She loves to bark at all things - people, dogs on TV, fireworks, load noises, the postman, the milkman, salesmen, dogs on the street, rottweilers, bulldogs - you name it!! :shock:

{{{{{{{{Claire}}}}}}}} come to mine for a holiday, you would love Maxx. He talks to me like that, I love the woo woo woo it makes me melt inside :lotsaluv:

When Maxx really wants something, he talks to me and it's a really funny chatter :lol: He doesn't really bark very often but when he does, we know about it :lol:

Charlie on the other hand is a barker and he'd spend all day doing so if I let him :roll:

Cailean woo's and barks. His nickname is Woo Woo :). He also "sings" if he's in the kitchen and wants to come out.

Bradley's a barker.

Topsy's a cryer and yapper.

Riley does the woo woo and barks as well, and I also get a lot of rubble rubbles!!! That is the best I can describe it! When we are gone a little longer than usual, she will run around the kitchen makinging a low rubble rubble rubble rubble. . . . It cracks me up.

Now Fletcher is learning to rubble rubble!!! :lol: :lol:

Let's see...yipper, yapper, woo-woo'er, ruff-ruff'er, barker. I've got em all...and on some days all in the same dog. They are so funny. My 6 yr. old only barks if someone he doesn't know comes to the yard...and it is the deep sounding GSD bark from a little angel dog. My female yips/yaps at cats and any animal on TV. And the youngest throws back and howls at the moon just for fun! And bring out a leash and they all go nuts. Otherwise, very quiet dogs icon_whistling . :badgrin:

Yep we've definately got a ferocious barker like that on our hands with Oscar! if you couldnt see him you'd think he was a BIG dog, not the shy little softy that he is!

Dexter is more vocal but is definately a bark no 'woo woos' I feel like I'm missing out here - I want to hear those 'woo woos'!!

Our Lhasa Arnie *ng*l used to woo when he got excited it was the loveliest sound :lotsaluv:

Daisy Boo woo woos all the time. She'll woo woo to hurry you up before going on a walk and she'll woo woo when you're late home from work. She barks when she play fights with Twinkle.

Twinkle has a really crap bark - it's high pitched and would hurt your ears. It's really a half cry/half bark.

I have a doggie with all manners of noises !

He loves a good bark at himself when he sees his reflection.

Makes the funny woo woo noise when going mad running around the house.

The funniest is when we are play fighting he makes what I can only describe as crocodile distress sounds very funny... he seems to enjoy them all with his little tail wagging !

The little fella had his 'OP' (to have them removed) on Tuesday and his barking has got worse since then !

haha! love this thread!

monty is normally pretty quiet but when he gets going, he's definitely a barker! he started barking from day one! he saw the yoga ball & just went ballistic!

some things he barks at: doorbell, buzzer, any non-dog critters, noises i can't hear, things that are out of place (i.e. grocery bag on the floor)

Toby is a woo woo'er. He doesn't bark that often though unless he gets REALLY excited!!

Taffy is a woofer and so is Archie! Archie seems to bark at anything, including shadows and takes ages to calm down. Taffy only barks when he wants to go home or wants a biscuit.

Wesley barks like a German Shepherd, but only when he sees someone on the golf course and he is in the back yard. When he is corralled in the kitchen with a baby gate and I come home, he YIPE YIPE YIPES!! It is the most high pitched obnoxious noise I have ever heard. :?

Cody is definitely a woo woo...Actually it is more like a Rooo Rooo. He cracks me up. He does it especially when Wesley has a fun toy and Cody wants it. ;)

Duncan has all kinds of voices:
He woo woos at the door bell and knocking noises
Barks when I wear a hat especially if bigger than a ball cap
Insistent, high pitched, paniced yelp when his yellow ball is missing...oh yes, and until you retrieve it

Arthur is just finding his voice aside from the occasional, 'i dont want to be in my crate' whine. His is so cute I don't even know how to react...I just melt.

Corgan barks properly when he's barking at the big dogs outdoors, he yip yaps at our Corgi, and he woo woos when he wants out of his crate! :yikes He's really not that much of a talker, though, in general...
