My dog almost seems to talk through growling. He growls all the time even with out threatening with his teeth. He just growls even if he is happy. Anyone else out their have a dog or cat like that.
Wow.... Just like my ExPartner... She growled like her brother and her brother sounds alot like your dog!
I very sorry for you and your kitty. It's never easy.
it does seem like sometimes he is trying to talk!
especially if he's standing by the door wanting to go out, his sounds become increasingly agitated if I don't let him out right away. and then he runs to the fence and barks and wants back in.
he has figured out a way to let us know exactly what he wants. sometimes it makes me laugh, his communication skills are better than some humans!
My deaf dog talks. She grunts, growls, snorts and whines under her breath.
She is not being aggressive. Half the time, she's talking to herself.
She's just a talky breed.
Some dogs are vocal and talk. Talk back and see where the conversation goes LOL. It's fun !
No. Our dog does not communicate in a weird way. She appears to think that we are dogs too, therefore she simply relies on all the usual muttly type noises - and expects that we know exactly what she means.
We don't. We're always sulking at each other.
You are a pack leader. As to sulking, peanut butter in the dog's mouth helps, as does a well placed bag on a foot or tail. Laser pointers are good too. Sulking...play with the dog.
My mini Schnauzer has a broad vocal range (when she's not just barking at everyone she sees in the street). My favorite is the "mumbly grumble" that she uses when she wants my attention and doesn't get it right away. Such as bedtime....Such as...right now!
Almost everything I've ever read about miniature Schnauzers calls them "talky" dogs. Just one more thing that makes them great companions.
One of my dogs is a Basenji mix and she makes the strangest noises! What is even crazier is that my other dogs mow mimic her so I have 3 huge dogs making grunting and howling noises!
My brothers dog could talk on command. It was hysterical. He sounded like an old drunk.
So i found out a new way to get my dog to talk if I play a ringtone and it can be almost anyone he starts to whine and then he starts bark talking then howls.
My son's dog, a Chesapeake Bay Retriever, doesn't say much, but when you ask him if he want to go for a walk or play ball, he smiles! I mean really smiles, with all teeth showing and tail wagging. Silly dog.
I have two yorkies, both of them characters. One growls whenever he wants something, almost like he's whining, but he especially likes to growl when he wants to play. He'll hop up on your lap with his toy in his mouth and growl at you. He also does this little dance on his hind legs. He'll get up on his back legs and wave his front paws at you.
The other one yodels. He makes this strange warbling sound in the back of his throat and it sounds just like a yodel. He also howls to music.
If my daughter plays "I like It" by Enrique Iglesias, one will howl and the other will dance on his back legs. One of these days I'm going to youtube it.
My son and I share a Snoodle that we adopted from the pound. If he needs to go outside, and has to potty really bad, he will get behind me, jump up and push my behind with both paws repeatedly to hurry me up! I used to live in an upstairs apt where the front door was downstairs...its a good thing he is a little dog, cause his pushy self nearly sent me flying down the stairs more than once!
I have a wonderful German Shepherd, who sits up straight and makes this wheezing sound in his throat, when he wants to go out. Also, when he realizes he's going for a walk, he just goes bananas, like he's having an orgasm or something. If anyone else heard this they'd think I was mistreating him..haha!
I love him, of course!
I have a Cairn Terrier that yodels (for lack of a better word.) She will let me know when it is time to wake up, time to eat and time for attention by making a weird sound that doesn't sound anything like a growl. It's her version of talking. I've heard the breed is prone to being very "verbal". She is no exception!
Yes, when my Border Collie wants something,usually a treat, she pushes really fast on the floor with her front paws, it's hilarious, and she gets her treat.
Wally sometimes pokes me with his nose when he wants me to play with him. He also growls in happiness (or perhaps more like moans of various pitches, to be more precise).
He paws me sometimes if he has to go out.
My dog, well my wife's dog, communicates in a number of odd ways.
When he's in someone's lap and being stroked he'll coo like a dove. When he's frustrated, as in play, he'll do a sustained howl, kind of a growl without the "grrr" in it, more like a sustained "ah" with his mouth open. He also snorts when he's frustrated.
He only barks if excited and that's not that often.
Then there's the silent communication. If he needs to go out he'll stare at one or the other of us for a while. If that doesn't work he'll go into the bathroom. He never goes into the bathroom for any other reason. If his water bowl is empty he does the same staring bit and again if it doesn't work he'll hop into the bathtub.
