Types of Rottweiler barks and their meaning
One of the unique characteristics of a Rottweiler is the ability to communicate with you. Just the way humans can combine words to form sentences and change the pitch of their voice to convey different messages, so can dogs change the way they bark depending on the information they are trying to convey to you. Rottweilers have several types of barks. The following are the top ten rottweiler barks and what they mean as recently described by the K9 Magazine.
A rapid and continuous Rottweiler barks at a mid-range pitch:
This type of bark means the dog is trying to alert someone about a potential problem or the presence of an intruder heading to your territory.
Rottweiler barks at a mid-range pitch in rapid strings with a few pauses:
Here the dog is alerting the leader of the pack about a problem in the area or an intruder within your area.
A moderate and incessant or prolonged Rottweiler barks with long intervals between each utterance:
Your four-legged furry friend is telling you that he is lonely and needs companionship. He is merely trying to know if someone is around to keep him company.
A sharp and short Rottweiler barks at a mid-range pitch (once or twice):
Anytime you hear this type of bark, know that your dog is greeting you.
A short, sharp Rottweiler barks at a low mid-range pitch (a single bark):
It is a type of bark that means you stop what you are doing.
A short, sharp Rottweiler barks at a high mid-range pitch (a single bark):
It is a surprised or startled type of bark. To human beings, it’s like
saying �Huh?’ or �What’s this?’ If this type of bark is repeated twice or thrice, then the meaning changes to an alert. It means your dog is alerting you to come and see something new or unusual.
A very short or single yelp high-pitched Rottweiler barks:
It is a type of bark that requires your immediate attention. The bark is usually a response
to a sudden and unexpected pain.
A series of yelps:
In this case also, the dog needs your attention ASAP. The bark means he is in severe fear and pain.
A stutter Rottweiler barks at a mid-range pitch:
It is a type of bark that tells you its playing time. The dog is saying “let’s play!” This type of a bark initiates playing behavior.
A rising Rottweiler barks that almost sounds like a yelp but not quite high:
The dog will give out this bark when the play gets rough and tough. No
need to panic, as he is trying to say “this is fun!”
In some cases, a dog can bark too much. For such a dog, you can use several options that will assist to control the dog’s bark. One of the options is exercising your dog a lot which will wear the dog out. Therefore, as a result, the dog will talk less.
If your Rottweiler has a habit of barking early in the morning or late at night, then bark control collars will help you deter the barking. The bark control collars function by monitoring your dog’s bark and using this to let your dog know when he or she needs to be quiet with a gentle and safe correction. The correction can be in several forms. They include static, spray, vibration, and ultrasonic correction. These forms can help you train your dog not to bark, regardless of how stubborn he is. For you to combat the strenuous excessive barking that you may have passed through, you should know the type of bark that you often hear from your dog.
