Our Sadie is almost 16 months old. She is still very quiet.
We can coax a little “Buff!” out of her if she thinks there’s someone at the door.
If she gets really excited, maybe a single, honest bark.
The most I’ve ever heard from her was when she was running full speed, playing with the neighbor’s Boarder Collie. It was an occasional, high pitched “yip” that almost sounded ( If I didn’t know better.) like she was in pain. Oh, and she’ll growl if you play tug-a-war with her.
My wife thinks I’m crazy, but we spent a little time at Beagle Palooza, and I kinda liked all of the Arrrooooing. I wish Sadie would express herself that way. (Once in a while.)
“Be happy she doesn’t!” I’m told. :nono5:

Yeah, but... /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif

Elizabeth never makes a peep, either. Well, she did make enough noise to wake dh every day of his week of night shift. I was at work, so I didn't have the pleasure of hearing it. Dh was not amused. I've heard her growl when playing with our German Shepherd, and she scared my kids half to death growling at the bedroom window one night. Turns out she was growling at her own reflection! Other than that, she's been practically mute.

Murphy has always been vocal, and still is. When we got Summer, she was VERY quiet, very un-beagle like. It took a while, but she found her voice and now is VERY vocal when she wants something.

Wish ours would be a bit quieter!!!ha ha we sound like an express train coming through the woods. Snoopy yelps non stop a really frustrated yelp, looking at Dave and meaning, Let Me Go. It at least warns other dog walkers that the mad beagles are coming. Susi doesnt bark or yelp, she screams!!! It really sounds like she is being badly treated and we get some strange looks from strangers. Oh for the day that they walk quietly. At home they hardly make a sound.

Our Jasmine has just started to find her voice, but her sister Maggie has not said a peep.

I think it actually scares Jasmine when she does bar(or arooooo). She always has a look on her face like "that came out of me?"

Enjoy the quiet......

Our first Beagle Sam was fairly quiet except when we came home from work and if he saw anyone out the front window.

Now these 2. Sadie is very, very verbal. When Sadie and Pooh were little they wrastled a lot. There was a lot of play growling during the wrestling matches. We thought at first it was both of them growling. We finally realized it was all Sadie. They get on scent trails in the back yard and Sadie yips and yowls a lot. Pooh Bear will join in with his deeper voiced Arooo only if a very recent hot trail. She has started to bark when she wants out and barks or whines when she wants to eat. She will also bark or whine at Pooh Bear if he is in her place on the couch until he jumps down and gives in to her.

So consider yourself lucky. She may still become more verbal as she gets older.

The Bagel is quiet around the house but he makes up for it when he gets a scent, sees another dog he thinks should be his friend, or heaven forbid, hears another beagle arroooo (Even if it is like my friend does with his IPod recording of a brace of beagles in pursuit! In 8+ years he has barked once in the house, at 2 AM to wake and alert me that all was not right (Later found out the police were chasing a prowler through the back yard),

Caleb is our gobby one, he speaks for the both of them. He barks, moans and groans, sighes and makes all sort of noises, he is just very vocal! Foxy "roooooooos" very loudly sometimes, it is very high piched and girly!!!!

When they play they go "rrrrrrhhhr rhhhhhhhhh" noises, hers is high pitched, calebs lower pitched!!! They can sound like thry are killing each other!!

I think baby Gwenni will be a quiet little girl, when we saw her she was very laidback and quiet and liked to be cuddled but she did'nt miss a thing and seemed quite inquisitive and her little nose was sniffing all the time to see waht was going on.

One gobby one is enough!!!!

Li'l Girl's not excessively noisy. If she's inside, and one of the other dogs barks outside, she will bark to go out. Also, she joins the "singing" when we come home. :eyes: When she's out and about, I will hear her when she's tracking, but to my dismay, she doesn't bay. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif She makes the other beagle sound when she's on a trail.

Jersey is pretty quiet. She barks to go outside sometimes, but only if we are ignoring her. She has a quiet little "ooof" that she does if she hears a noise. The only time she really lets go is when we leave her alone. Then it's "arrroooooo" until we get home. She sounds like she's being tortured. We just don't leave her alone anymore due to that!

Patience! It will come... Some dogs do not arrooo until they reach full mental maturity which in Beagles is ( NOOOOOO, not never!....) around 3 years of age.
If you really can't wait that long, you can buy her a pet rabbit. You'll see, it will speed up the process... And then you will wish you....(you know)

Both Moose and Popcorn were a LOT quieter when we first got them until they learned and adopted all of Booker's bad habits (including barking right in the face of black dogs - not sure why she does that). Walking the three of them together can be quite a symphony - but for the most part they are quiet at home unless there is a reason to make noise.

Booker and Moose will also bay when chasing squirrels or rabbits, but so far all Popcorn does is a high pitched yip-yip sound - I'm hoping that will develop into a bay as she matures (and since she is only 2 now it sounds like that may be the case).

The other thing I find odd is that Moose has the highest voice of the three (by a long way), even though he is the biggest and the only male. He had been tied up with a too-tight electrical cord before he was rescued, however, and sometimes we wonder if that damaged his vocal chords somewhat.

Snoopy is a rescue that we have had for a year and I swear if it wasnt for the fact that he had such horrible seperation anxiety and was wimpering in the crate when he got him, I would not know he is a beagle by voice.

I have only heard a bay 1 time, while he got free from me and chased a rabbit.

It was so many months now since we heard a noise, that I almost questioned whether his vocal cords were cut by prior owners (then I remember that he was vocal when we first got him)

I appreciate the quiet, or we would be kicked out of our 1BR high rise in Chicago!!

Our two are both very vocal but in very different ways. Crook tends to bark more. He also has the typical yelp (?) when he's sniffing. Bel, on the other hand, barks little but tends to yodel and howl more. She sounds soooo cool when we get home everyday. Arooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Love it! She also coos and purrs at me while she lays on my chest. Peggy hates it :p Bel NEVER does it with her.

Daisy doesn't bark much at all. She will Arrooo, however, whenever I get home. I love it. It starts out as a gurgling deep in her throat and then rises to a full-voiced bay until I pet her and let her out.

Sometimes, I join her and I think she loves it! It's fun for both of us. :biglaugh:

She has barked, but very little. When she sees me get the Liver Snax out, she's so impatient she arrooos and sits up without a word from me. Those are the only treats she will do that for!!

She bays when outside, but mostly when it's dark (and late) and I have to tease her back in with a treat /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

No matter, you gotta love 'em. :heart:

A quiet beagle? How blissful /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif !!! Mine is way too vocal. Boeing aroos, barks, growls, whimpers, grunts, snorts, .... You wouldn't believe how many sounds he makes. And full blast, too. But I'm glad he always comes up with a reason to be vocal /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif .
