My dog Dixie is LOUD! Extremely LOUD! She has offended numerous people with her barking. We get dirty looks all the time. You wouldn’t mind if it was somewhere dogs weren’t allowed, but these are dog training centers and dog festivals. I mean why would people go to these things if they didn’t expect to hear barking dogs? I admit to being partially to blame for the loudness though. When Dixie asked for a megaphone I couldn’t see the harm. How was I to know they have self levitating megaphones? Now she refuses to leave home without it. So, if you see us coming or more likely hear us coming put on some earplugs because she has extra batteries.
