    If I'm not in the room when my male wants out, he lets out what sounds like a high pitch whistle to alert me. Anyone else heard of this?

    Unless I'm not understanding something here, that description sounds like one of the variations of a whine. Have I heard (of) it? YES!!!!!!!!!!!

    Omg yes. Jasper whines every morning. He is always in a rush to go to the park. Sometimes it sounds more like a whistle. If he does it in my ear I swear the sound waves will burst my ear drum.

    Ah the twilight zone noises. I was calling it a nose whistle but throat whistle works too! Either way, so annoying, right? Have you discovered the howling yet? :whistle:

    Music to our ears...
    Whistling, whining, gurgling, howling, etc- all at once.

    A Doberman singing.

    Oji can produce a very small whine (his quietest whistle) when he knows I am mad at him and/or I have given the silent command. (By the way, the silent command is not possible to enforce in some dogs, because they do not realize they are whining).

    I call it Vex's cricket noise. He does this when he's excited but trying to show restraint lol!

    Ha. It's not that he's trying to make nice with me. It's that he realizes he should not push me further at that time.

    I get howling every time the local fire siren goes off. Throws his head skyward and lets it rip.

    Jazz has only howled once in her life, nearly 2 1/2 yrs, and it was when a lot of Dingos, (Australian wild dogs), were singing in the early morning. She wasn't very loud and it didn't last long, but it was the most beautiful sound! Raised the hairs on the back of my neck.

    They sure do know how to communicate, they even have the teenage type "huff" going on at times. You know the one where they throw themselves down in disgust and let out that huge "phweeeeessssshhhhh", usually when you are insisting they cease and desist with something they want to do! Luckily I don't have to put up with too much whistling and whining, mostly just under the breath. :rofl:

    Oji's my first howler. Emergency vehicle sirens. Tornado sirens. Violin playing. I've posted a few videos to the Random Video thread in the past.

    Never had a whiner and I thankful for that. Rumor used to make the strangest noise when she was playing as a pup. It was sort like a scream, kind of hard to describe. Now she is the quietest dog ever. She does have a deep bark, sounds more like a male.

    Could you please pick out my next Doberman for me? All of yours have loved to swim and have not been whiners?

    Both mine have what I call their ‘Windsong’. All noises made from their wind pipe. :D
    Bogie has a pitch perfect howl when he hears a siren. Bacall doesn’t howl.

    The groaning and heavy sighing is the biggest with the twins. It’s a total groan fest. Lol
    If I make a groan sound they will automatically groan too. what is maddening is one of the birds mimics Bacall’s whine perfectly. Drives me nuts!

    Absolutely perfectly. It’s freaky to hear him do it.
