    Default Broken Bark! WOOF!

    Our 13 month old English Bully has... A broken bark!
    As I said in my welcome, Mickey was a rescue. He lived outside so we're working on potty training his sweet little self.
    He's good about not having accidents if I bring him out every two or three hours but sometimes he has to go NOW! And can't tell me, because he doesn't " speak."


    How can i encourage him to talk to mama?? I want to hear his little voice when he needs something.

    Well I have to be honest this is the FIRST I've heard of this… I will tag some other members. Will he bark for a treat?!!

    My Tyson doesn't really bark either. I mean, he will if someone knocks or rings door bell. But that's about it. How about putting some bells on the door and teaching him to go touch them when he needs to go out?

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Brutus only barks because my Labs taught him to when he was a puppy. Frankie isn't a barker unless he hears the garbage truck or ice cream man coming. If he needs something, he will talk to us. It kinda sounds like Chewbacca from Star Wars. I would try the bell by the door for potty like Jessica said.

    I have a bell at the door, and my youngest one will hit the bell,when she wants to go out. One will just take a swipe at the door, and the others just sit and stare at me! Each time you take him out-just before you open the door-hit the bells. I think eventually the dog will catch on!

    Not many will bark when they need to go out. Ours will usually just stand by the door. As others have said, some people will train with a bell.

    Winnie barks a lot, but never when she needs to go out. We tried the bells, but she never took to them. Today we are having a doggie door installed. It's getting too hot here to leave the door open a crack!

    You just recently adopted Mickey, right? I have noticed that most dogs need time to settle in to a new home before they start barking. Give him a little time and he may bark a little more.

    That's it, exactly!!! I have been trying to figure out what it sounds like. Monty only does it occasionally, normally he is pretty quiet, well, except for the vacuum cleaner and steam mop then all hell breaks loose!

    I love when they "talk"! It cracks us up!! Frankie is also the same way with the vacuum and steam mop!! You can also add the washer and dryer. I have stackable front loaders in my kitchen and god forbid they shake a little, Frankie thinks they are transformers trying to kill the family, and looses his mind. I find him jumping and barking like mad at them!

    Our Frenchie only barks when he is playing... otherwise, he sits at the top of the basement stairs to tell us he has to go. Now, our puppy, Lambeau does the same thing -- so we have to keep them on a good schedule and watch for the statue at the stairs

    He will only bark if he thinks there is a threat to the children, like someone walking by them playing. I've tried a hundred different ways to encourage some talking but nothing works.
