Some of the most common barks have fairly standard interpretations. For example:
– Continuous, rapid barking (medium pitch) – this is the classic ‘alarm bark’, which your dog will use to alert you to something it feels you need to know about.
– One or two short, sharp barks (medium to high pitch) – a simple greeting bark. Your dog will use it when it sees a person it is familiar with.
– Stuttered bark (medium pitch) – this bark typically sounds a bit like ‘arr-Ruff!’ It’s a sign that your dog is in the mood to play.
Each time a dog barks, a high pitched sound is emitted. All dogs within range would hear this sound.

There are three basic types of bark collars: Electric shock, high frequency sound and Citronella spray collars, all of which build a negative association between the correction and your dog’s barking. Citronella and sound-emitting collars are safer and more humane to use than shock collars, which use an electric shock to correct your dog’s barking. The citronella spray just smells and tastes unpleasant, while the high frequency sound collars emit a high pitched, annoying sound, often with a vibration, that may interrupt the barking. If you do decide to use a bark collar, they will only work if your dog does not know that the collar is what is giving the correction, so when you first put the collar on . You want your dog to get used to wearing the collar with nothing happening. If your dog learns that the collar is the one doing the shocking/spraying, then your dog will do everything they can to get the collar off and the barking problem will not be solved. Only after your dog has gotten used to the collar should you turn it on. When you are ready to do this, call your dog over to you and spend a few minutes petting and scratching them so they are calm and relaxed, then non-nonchalantly flip the switch while you scratch around your dog’s neck. The next time your dog barks, they will receive the correction and the barking should begin to decrease. But the sound is kind of high pitched and it's such a short and snappy bark, you know a real

The first and most obvious thing you will notice is the pitch of different sounds. The concept of how pitch influences meaning is very simple. In all of nature, big things tend to create lower pitch sounds. Tap on a tin cup and kick a water barrel and you will get a clear example of how size influences pitch. The pitch of a dog’s bark should be evaluated relative to its own bark and not all dogs. In other words, a deep bark for a Chihuaua will not be as deep as a high pitch bark from a Rottweiler. An American Pit Bull Terrier can have a very high pitch bark for its size so you have to evaluate it based on the individual dog.Anxious barking often seems to be an an act of self-soothing for many dogs. It is often high-pitched and sometimes accompanied by whining. This type of barking is common for dogs with separation anxiety.The bark is a treasure trove of information regarding our dogs’ mental state. Deciphering how high pitched, rapid, prolonged and forceful the barking is tells us many things about what your dog is trying to “say.”There are a lot of stop-barking devices available on the market. The most commonly known are bark collars that deliver an electric shock, high-pitched squeal, or stinging spray of citronella mist whenever a pet dog barks. Other devices include ultrasonic emitters that are placed in a room and activated by barking and muzzles that keep the dog’s jaws held shut.Many dogs will use this kind of bark at the door to indicate that they want to go out. Lowering the pitch to a relaxed midrange means “Terrific!” or some other similar expletive, such as “Oh, great!” My cairn terrier, for example, who loves to jump, will give this single bark of joy when sent over the high jump. Other dogs give this same bark when given their food dish.According to Stanley Coren, author of many books on dog communication, including How Dogs Think and How to Speak Dog , all dogs share a universal barking language, though different breeds seem to have different dialects. The vocal sounds, though limited in the "words" which are barks, growls, whines, yips, yelps, whimpers and howls, are quite varied in the pitch, repetition and duration and these "inflections" form meaning. Generally, lower-pitched sounds are warnings and higher-pitched sounds are friendly. Regardless of your dog's size, she knows if she lowers her voice, she may be perceived as being larger. Conversely, even large breeds may whine to say they are no threat.
