Default My dog is a idiot

When I let her out side she will bark at everything that walks down the street, but she will not bark to let you know she wants to come in. She will sit there cold or hot snow or rain..I let her out and go down stairs and If i dont let the other dog out with her, i would forget she was out there at times


Any one have a dog like this or is just me?

Kinda, but not really.

I have a siberian husky, she will sit outside all day and not bark at a thing. Ever.

Yet if she is inside she will whine, cry, howl, talk, bark etc. unless i constantly pet her with my foot.

our dog's a real bad ass as long as the front window is between her and whatever she's barking at. she barks at anything that moves outside ! but you take her out front and all she does is run away from stuff.

Mine bark at anyone on the sidewalk, but the scratch when they want in. I need to find a way to protect the back door when I get a new one.

Nothing barks with such intensity and perfect rhythm for 10-15min some times. American Eskimo.

That breed...the small useless versions...should be ended. I don't care how fking cute they are...fkers bite and are annoying as hell. You can't hear anyone else when he hits max bark.

My dogs bark at every noise they think they hear and the youngest dog has learned how to open the door from the outside to let them in...

I have a 190lb Great Dane that barks at the neighbor lady. She has to be hitting close to 100 and has a walker that takes her 30 minutes to go across my front yard. The dog won't bark at her until she hits the half way point and he can get in close behind her. Real brave one I got.

my dog never ever barks, it's odd. Only when he's playing with other dogs and they ignore him, he hears another dog on TV, or he's just sitting there staring at me and I'm not paying attention to him.

He has figured out his howl though (he's a beagle mix), he throws that in when he's barking, just to piss off the neighbors.

Once he's outside, he will stay there all day if given the opportunity.

My dog (40lb English Springer) will bark only at other dogs and men that are seen outside. Kids and women are no threat. She will stand her ground against men. But once they get close and show no fear she will sit and wait to be given a pet on the head.

To come in she will yip. Not a full bark and not just a whine. but a yip.


It is funny on walks while we are being barked at she will have head and tail up as if to say I am ready for your challenge, but she will be on the far side of the sidewalk away from the barking dog.

Actually, any dog that barks at people near my property, I would not consider an idiot. She is doing a great job. Set the timer on the stove so you'll remember to let her in.
