    He barks when he sees squirrels in the yard, hears someone talking outside that he thinks is in our yard or when someone arrives.  He is a schnauzer and they are super territorial so he kinda freaks sometimes when he doesn’t know who is at the door.  Once you are inside though he gives hugs.  lol

    Our dog barks once in a blue moon, only if she’s really scared.  She was abused before going to the shelter where we adopted her and apparently she’s scared to bark.  Since she’s losing her fear of bigger men and sirens, she’s barking even less.  We feel pretty spoiled now, having a dog that never barks!

    Whenever anyone comes to the door, whenever the neighbor walks her dachsunds past the front door, and whenever we’re out in public and he decides some person walking by is a threat. He never barks when interacting with other dogs, and when someone he knows comes to the house he stops barking quickly once he recognizes them. Our only real problem with his barking is when we’re out in public, on a walk or at a cafe or whatever, and he decides someone is a threat and lets out hostile barks at them. He’s not a nervous barker or a lonely barker, so that’s something to be thankful for.

    He barks once if he hears us at the door or in the garage and we are taking to long to come inside. He’ll also bark if someone strange (like a delivery guy or handyman) comes to the door. And if my Boyfriend or Best Friend provokes him when they are playing together, haha.

    I still put rarely though because when he does bark it lasts for maybe 15 seconds.

    Mine doesnt bark very often at all, only when she is spooked by someone/something.  You wouldnt happen to be watching The Dog that Saved Christmas on ABC family right now would you?

    I picked rarely because he doesn’t never bark, but it is very, very rare — maybe five times a year? It’s only when he is in the front yard by himself and a stranger physically undoes the gate and wanders into the yard.

    And by bark, he lets out one, singular bark. I have never in my ten years heard him bark continuously or maliciously.

    I put never because she would only bark if someone came angrily pounding on the door that she didn’t know.

    Otherwise, I trained her not to bark.  If someone looks dangerous or is drunk, she will bark to protect me (like camping once this angry man was yelling on his phone and came walking- like he was delirious- toward our site and she was all of a sudden a “big mean dog”).

    Only at the doorbell or when told to “speak”.

    My lab, Cooper has about a million different barks! There’s “I’m hungry” bark, “I’m thirsty” bark, “I gotta pee!” bark, “I’m bored” bark and my least favorite “I think something is wrong” bark. The last one doesn’t happen too often, but its usually when I’m alone at night and it really gets my heart beating!

    Our dog rarely barks – that’s part of why we picked her from the shelter!  When you live in an apartment, IMO, it is rude to your neighbors to have a dgo that barks all of the time.  So we specifically tried to avoid that.
