Cerena is my first pitbull. I am surprised by the sound of her bark. It just doesn't fit the dog. She has a shrill bark that could peel paint of walls! She doesn't bark often but when she wants attention she will bark and it's always yappie like a little dog. Is this normal for pits?

Actually in my experience when pits bark it IS very high pitch and sounds like little ankle bitter then you get greeted with this big muscle bound beast and it like lol hello there. anyway i have been around several that have that bark, i was very surprised when cheza developed a deep bark as i am not used to that i mean business sound coming from a pit before.

Cerena barks for attention or if our Boston barks, she will bark. I was worried who ever had her before the rescue may have done something hideous to her. It good to know that it's normal.

dooney has a huge bark looks like it belongs to a dog twice the size. He doesn't do it often at all the last time he barked out loud was at a show in Oct. when some dog was screaming at him and they could not get close to each other . then he started barking. My female Zoey never barks, she has a wicked sounding grow snarl mix though. I have heard a lot of APBT the kind of scream instead of bark.

That's the kind of bark Kane has. If you didn't see him, it'd sound like he was a mastiff by how big his bark is. That's actually his "alert-bark".

He does have a different higher-pitched bark when we're playing around. Almost sounds like a yodel.

Lily has a very deep bark & barely past the 6 month mark... Lex on the other hand never really developed a mature bark. Does this weird shrill & wicked annoying, usually when he's wanting out of the kennel if I left him in there for errands - he's a big ole baby... But they both have a similar alert bark if someone's knocking on the door or kids cutting through our lawn.

When I went to the shelter the other week most had a normal bark to a high pitch bark but one of the bullys in there had the most massive earth shattering bark Ive ever heard! When he barked the rest stopped! I liked him but he was a mean SOB!

All of mine have their own distinct bark, but Bella's bark is the deepest. At times, she sounds more "**** dog" than anything else, and Lord help us all if she starts howling. :rolleyes:

I've had alot of pits in 32 years.most have deep voices.some that don't go on alert and just yip and yap are shrill.
throughout though I've always had 2-3 as house dogs.
and they scare my big dumb self.it just rocks me to the core.I mean,I get chills when my present pit barks.
I've always adressed talking dogs by their vocalization.

funny you say that the first time Dooney barked in the house it freaked us out. we were watching a movie and a hound dog started barking. And he went nuts. It was loud and he seemed so angry at the fact that he could hear this dog in the house, but not see him.:hammer::hammer:

LOL Marley who is pit and rott mix has the annoying scream bark sometimes. He sounds like a girl LOL. Dosia on the other hand sounds like what you guys are saying about Kane and Dooney you'd think there was a huge mastiff in the yard lol. Dosia does it a lot when he hears cats fighting out side of the fence. He's very protective of his little kitty she always runs into the back yard when theres cats on her tail lol.

My Tyson sounds like a little kid whining when he was attention... you would almost say he sounds like he's cring and he's 6 years old ans weighs about 80lbs. Cali is 5 years old and her bark is like you described a little dog.. I think each dog has it's own individual sound

The first time Kane ever did his Mastiff alert-bark, he was sitting on the couch next to me, soft music was playing in the background while I was getting some work done on the laptop.

I heard someone knock on the door and just about crapped my pants at the sound of Kane's gravelly, booming bark as he made a flying leap off the couch towards the door. LOL.

I was like, WTH man, where did this big dog come from? :rofl:

He wouldn't shut up, either, until I told him it was okay and he could see the plumbing guy on the porch, and then Kane's tail started to thump against the door. The plumbing guy looked like he was wondering if he shouldn't have just turned around and left, haha.
