Jackyl barks when playing but its a high pitched puppy bark. When something is going on Jackyl uses a low deep bark and growl to let us know soemthing is freaking him out. But he never really barked much till we REALLY got into playing with him, i mean on the floor wrestling not just throwing the ball. Tug of war etc.

Bosley barks when someone comes to the door or stops in front of our house on the street.

Otherwise he doesn't make any noise. He's scared the crap outta me before because half the time I don't even realize he's following me and then I turn around and he's right there!

Neither of my girls bark a lot. Pheona will bark if someone is close to the house or to the yard. She'll also bark if she's playing with one of us or with Murphy. Now Murphy will bark if playing or when we kennel her.

Yes chewbacca! That's exactly what Duke sounds like when he's playing! lol

He doesn't normally bark much unless someone knocks at the door. Also, when we get home and let him out of his crate he goes crazy, jumping, wiggling his butt, barking and licking! lol

Rosco never barked a whole lot as a puppy and still is generally quiet but he is a pretty lazy non energetic boxer. He only barks when I give the cue or if there's are stranger near the door. Most boxers I know aren't crazy barkers around here. :/

Dodger is also not a barker, it's very rare, but he does let me know when someone is close so not to worry about that. Daisy on the other hand sometimes makes me crazy with her barking - LOL

And I always figure that Chewbacca's creator must have had a boxer, I love it when they do that!!!

OMG! You should come visit my herd! Then you would SSOOOOOO appreciate your quiet little girl even more!! LOL Last night for Halloween, I shut off all the lights and sat in the dark with the dogs. It was the noisiest three hours of my LIFE!! Didn't matter that no one came to our house, there were still spooky things walking up and down the street and they wanted to make sure I knew about every single one. *sigh*

When my boys start playing its pretty intense, growling, barking, jumping. They especially love to play in front of the TV when we are trying to enjoy a show, around 9 o'clock in the evening.

Our female didn't really start to bark til around 1. As she got older she got more protective. She is now 2 and half and only barks if someone is at the door, or if someone is coming into the yard or she just wants attention. I have read that as female boxers get older they get more protective and vocal.
