She Asks Her Dog To ‘Bark Softly,’ What He Does Is Cracking Us Up
There are times when we all wish our dogs had more of an “inside voice,” especially on those nights they seem to be barking at nothing in particular at 3 AM. Some people try things like spray bottles or barking collars to help control their dog’s excessive barking. This cute pooch’s mom decided to take matters into her own hands when it came to her dog’s volume level.
Is This How You Bark?
Mame the Shiba Inu is one incredibly smart dog. In fact, I’m pretty sure he understands Japanese. His owner starts off asking him to bark, so he starts with letting out a nice loud bark.
She then asks him, “Is this how you bark?”
A Little Bit Softer Now
As if to answer her, Mame responds to his mom’s question by letting out another nice loud ringing bark. His mom then says, “You can bark a little softer, right?”
Ever eager to please, Mame lets out a ruff that’s about half as loud as his normal bark. His mom praises him and then asks him to go a just a little softer.
Down To A Whisper
The clever dog then does something amazing. He barely opens his mouth and barks so softly that it is barely a whisper. I think his mom speaks for the rest of the internet when she praises him and tells him, “You’re so cute, so cute.”
Then, for a job well done, he enjoys some tasty and well-deserved treats. Is it possible that Mame knows exactly what his owner is asking? Maybe he just recognizes a couple of the words and knows he’ll get a treat if he does what he is asked.
