    Then this Saturday I met a frustrated Walker hound.

    Holy cow, I need to re-evaluate that statement. I likened him to sounding like a bellowing elephant seal. It was the loudest, most constant noise I have ever heard out of a dog. I think what was so incredible was how his baying seemed to penetrate everything. It did not sound like a dog. Do all coonhounds sound like this?

    ...only when they want to. And even a frustrated Liz is pretty quiet.

    Rage is loud. Daisy has the capacity to be loud but almost never is.

    They can be. Emma was only ever loud for a reason (ie hunting or the door bell ringing)

    Mind you watching a beagle running as fast as they can, throwing up their head to howl as loud as they can, and then them falling over because their front feet left the ground to how is priceless :rofl1:

    However when the hound teaches the Doberman to bay like a hound, its not good. Dobermans can not bay it comes out as a half howl half I don't know what lol

    A friend had beagles in agility, and I swear, they looked like they went backwards briefly whenever they bayed at her while running the course. Super cute!

    Yes, I had hounds as a kid. They need to sound like that so hunters can track them easily when out on hunts.

    Noise doesn't bother me.

    It's been my experience that Huskies/Malamutes are quite noisy as well. Kobe chatters away at me all night long. I turn him the deaf ear.

    The good ones all do, lol

    My current pack of 4 dachshunds will make your brain curdle when in full cry. My brother runs B&T coonies and you can hear them bay on a hot track for over 5 miles!

    Haha I may be in the minority but I love hound baying! ;) And I worked with a lot at the shelter and cleaned kennels. They are just really great dogs but not for everyone.

    I own a coonhound. He doesn't bay or anything unless he's fixated on something. Little puppy hound baying is adorable lol. Beagles are serious bayers too! But I really like the coonhound baying. They aren't as dramatic haha.

    I remember the one and only time we had a Bloodhound board in at work. (They aren't very common in this area.) When she bayed, the entire kitchenette area vibrated. Her bay was louder and more intense than 20+ dogs barking all at once.

    This is why I will never own a hound. Except for maybe a Basset, because when they bay I don't mind. LOL

    I love the hound baying! I love the deepness and utter wholeness of the sound. Also why I like Zander's lower roo's and woo's. Sibes and Mal's are usually VERY chattery, but they have a normal-lower voice most of the time. Sometimes they can get higher pitched.

    I like collies/koolies/etc higher squeals and screams of happiness, too. But for some reason I just can't do that glass-breaking high pitched sharp one-second bark that many toys and terriers do. It's just...brain scrambling for me.

    Not sure i could cope with a persistent screamer or barker. I go insane with my two, who are whiners. They whine for just about everything!

    Fred is actually now the worst, and is very vocal. It's annoying, but also very funny. He whines and growls and makes funny noises. And when he's really frustrated or excited it builds up to a proper woooooooo woo woooooooooo. Howling noise :D

    Yes that! I have never heard a dog as loud as this one! It was actually pretty impressive in a way.
