Buddy does not howl! He is so quiet, the only time you hear anything from him is when his big brother (Rottie) barks at someone outside, he gets his little butt right next to him and barks. Sounds like a high pitch little bark, but I canot get him to howl!

Our other Beagle, Alibabba (lived to 16 1/2, he went to the Rainbow Bridge last year.) howled all the time! Pick me up, put me on the couch, feed me, pay attention to me or don't look at me like that :eyes:

Well - aparantly Buddy doesn't howl. No really, I know a beagle, Abby (Chloe's best friend) that is soooooooo quiet. When her owners hear a bark, they party! and they are use to having a howler at home (their previous beagle howled all the time).
They love listening to Chloe howl, and even she only howls at the park when something happens, or when she is very suspicious of something at home...

Caesar doesn't howl. When we go on walks and other dogs bark at him he just stares at them like "What's your problem?"
Sometimes he will bark at the cat or when he's having a temper tantrum. But I haven't heard an "arroooo" out of him since the second day we had him. He's just quiet guy.

Duke doesn't howl, at least not that we've heard yet. He doens't bark all that often, either, but when he does, it's loud!

Our 13 y/o lab, Roscoe, never barked. All his life, we've heard him bark maybe a total of 5 times. Then along came Duke. Duke will bug poor Roscoe, wanting to play, until Roscoe just barks and barks at him.

How old is he? Gage didn't howl for quite awhile, then he just started one day. He did bark once every so often at first, but once he started, he never really shut up. :biglaugh:

I've only heard the Bagel attempt to "howl" once and it was very pathetic. He felt compelled to join the neighborhood dogs in serenading a fire truck. He was the last to try and the first to stop and it might have been because I laughed at him.

He barks about once very two years (five times in the nine years, seven months he’s been with me) and for good cause like the police chasing the prowler through the back yard..

He does have a good voice and he will arrrooo if he gets first gets a scent, if he sees another dog and I don’t immediately let him go visit or if he sees a jackrabbit or other unobtainable prey!

His voice turns to a series of staccato yips as he follows a scent to a burrow or bush.

He also talks to me when he wants something when were in the vehicle. It could be just be 'I want to sniff' or something important like 'I need to whiz' but he communicates well! He barked once in the house (prowler) and has arroooed at me when there something in his backyard that shouldn’t be there and I was slow in opening the back sliding door. Usually it is a pigeon but he doesn’t bother the dove, quail or other birds, just pigeons.

Besides a little whimpering in her crate when she doesn't want us to leave, Beasley has remained as quiet as a church mouse...My last Beagle, Honey, would howl at anything and everything. So far, it's been a very nice change of pace.

Wow, that is strange for me since our other Beagle never stopped! Buddy is almost 4 so if he has not by now, I doubt he will. We try to get him to howl by howling at us, he just looks at us like we are nuts /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

Ralphey knows how, but he doesn't bark or howl unless he is very frustrated.

Hasn't made much noise at all since he learned to climb the steps, before that it drove him nuts that he couldn't come up and share the fun.

Marley is extremely vocal, considering I had a Cocker who rarely barked or anything. He barks and whines, and I guess howls too. But probably more the 'aroo' you guys always mention.

Excuse my Beagle inexperience, but what's an aroo and what's a howl?

I was kind of excited one day when Spock was new to the house and he heard the train go by a mile away or so and let out the tinest, cutest little howl. My grandma's beagle/basset hound Bullwinkle used to howl at the train (the tracks were 3 houses away) every time it passed, but was otherwise extremely quiet. But Spock hasn't been interested in letting out anything else so melodious since then, despite my best attempts to howl along for encouragement /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif Ah well.

He did bark this morning at the garbage truck, which happened to pass just as he saw me slip out the side gate to push the recycling out. He had kind of a little panic attack and ran around the yard barking at the doors and jumping high up on the bricks until he saw me come back in, and then he would not quit whimpering. My boyfriend worked from home this morning so that the puppy would have his daddy to comfort him in his nervousness. He's fine tonight. If that's what's going to make him bark, I'll be glad to not hear it anytime in the near future. My poor little anxious pup!

You lucky people who own a quiet beagle.

Out of our three as I am sure I have said before, the girls are very quiet. Gwenni is an angel and very rarely barks, Foxy barks and is noisy when playing but they are good girls.

Oh but Mister Barkalot AKA Caleb - he drives us nuts, hes has to vocalise every emotion and desire, he must be the whingiest whiniest dog I have ever met.

He will bark for the sake of barking. He barks at 6am every morning like a furry alarm clock.

He had been like this since a tiny puppy.

He even outbarked the bark collar he had, he would bark until the citonella spray reservoir was empty.

At least we know what he wants, he never hesitates to tell you.

The water spray bottle shuts him up sometimes.

He would not be him without the bark. The only time he doesn't bark is when hes ill

Snoopy is very quiet. We actually thought his vocal cords were cut for about a year after we rescued him b/c he didnt ever make a sound...then one day he saw a rabbit and howeled, only one time, and only time we ever heard a howel.

He has growled at the door bell maybe 5 times but that is it...im glad he is quiet, but as we look for another beagle, I think we may never get as lucky to have a quiet one like him

We have one very verbal Beagle (Sadie) and one normal Beagle (Pooh Bear). When they were puppies they used to wrestle all the time. We could hear loud growling when they wrestled. We assumed it was both of them growling. We soon found out it was just Sadie growling. Sadie is our back yard hunter and she makes all kinds of sounds when on a scent. She also barks when she wants somthing. Usually I can tell what she wants. Pooh Bear is quieter. He will only bark on a very fresh scent trail and barks at things out the front window. When he wants something he will paw at me or he will paw at something that makes a lot of noise to get our attention. Aren't they funny?

At home Rosa is very quiet and doesn't make a single sound, not even if someone knocks on the door. But take her for a walk she howls at everything and anything.

Sherry is as quiet as can be. I have never heard her howl and she has barked maybe 3 or 4 times in the 4 months I have had her.

Maggie doesn't howl either. She barks if a stranger walks past or comes to the door and she barks at objects when she wants them off the higher shelves that are out of her reach.

No howling from Vinny either.

Beagle #1, Bama was a big howler and very chatty when he was a pup. Adulthood has ended his chattiness but not the howling. And I love it. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif
