Dogs hear us talk all day, but if they bark for more than a minute we tell them to stop

If dogs could just bark a little quieter we might not mind so much.


If our talking hurt their ears and disrupted their thoughts and work and sleep, they’d have something to complain about. … But if they did we’d immediately tell them to shut up of course.


Human speech is around 60 decibels. Dog barks are around 100 decibels up to 120 decibels. If they could make their barks quieter I don’t think we would have any qualms about it.


That is because we do not yell everything we say like a dog.


So you shout rude obscenities at perfectly nice ppl walking outside your house and scream at your neighbors through a fence?
