This is an interesting thread. Our english setter “happy growls” when we come home. Typically he has a toy in his mouth for us, wags his tail and bows his head down while he growls.

It’s very cute. Some people have been caught off guard by it when they visit, as most people do associate growling with agressiveness..but my dog is far from mean.

@jasonkatie2014:  Well, she loves walks and people, haha. She loves being outside and loves to be loved on by humans. She just doesn’t understand that there are people that don’t want to hold/pet/cuddle her or be licked by her.

I may have to track down a dog trainer, myself! I’ve been having a hard time curbing her behavior on my own, and I’m not sure that a bark collar would really be effective in this sort of situation.

Glad I’m not the only one with talkative pups 🙂
