Guybrush has barked about 5 times since we got him more than a year ago.

He barks at our neighbour across the road and at one of my parents neighbours. Both older gents.

and the only other time he has barked has been in his sleep. He woke himself up last time he sleep barked.

Buddy can be a pretty vocal guy but he does live with 3 Yorkies so compared to them he is the quiet guy.

Buddy is a big whiny barker especially when he sees other dogs and wants to play. He does "quiet" well though I can't complain too much.

Tucker and Tonka

Tucker and Tonka bark like crazy when someone walks by our bay window.
I'm glad they do though-they are good watch dogs-they might lick someone to death if they broke in, though!!

Ollie doesn't bark much, usually only when he's hungry and knows I'm getting his breakfast/dinner ready

Buddy barks at the fence if someone's on the other side or if Hiro starts barking. Hiro always starts it!

Otherwise, he'll grunt in play and he whines, but he's not very vocal.

So far, Dug barks when he is excited during play, or when he wants something, like a toy that's inside his play pen when he's on the other side, or when he wants to go downstairs.....he's currently too little to make it down on his own. I would think it's very unusual to have a dog who barked so little, but I suppose it could be seen as a perk.

Rocket is a moderate barker. He barks when he is outside and wants in. He barks if he gets really, really riled up (i.e. the kids are running around the house screaming and yelling).

And, rarely, he will switch to his "big boy bark". That is the one that makes me sit up and pay attention, and fast. A couple weeks ago, he was outside before it was light out when all of a sudden he let loose with a deep, growly "back off" kind of bark and was running from the fence that faces the street to the back door where I was. I let him in and he kept up the same bark running toward the front windows and door. I locked up all the doors real fast, let me tell you! He very clearly had seen or heard something that didn't belong on our street.

But overall, I can leave him out in the back yard and he will rarely bark. Even when he plays with other dogs, it's more of a silent wrestling match.

It's a refreshing change from our collie who could never be left outside alone because he would bark incessantly. To the point that the neighbors complained.

I love that Rocket will notify us clearly when something isn't right, and keep quiet the rest of the time.

Barkley too has only barked a couple of times in his life I think.

He did growl under his breathe at me recently because I didn't put his window down fast enough in the car. It was priceless to see and hear.

Tuco barks when he's in a very heated playfight and we have trained him to bark when he needs to go to the washroom outside, he also barks for attention occasionally but we are trying the stop that . I wouldn't worry though, my old golden almost never barked only when he got very exited

Gabby barks when the doorbell rings, the garage door goes up/down. She has never barlked outdoors. That was the role of my last rottie Isis.
