Shiba inu screaming
Rex, the shiba inu, screaming his head off -shiba scream
Hello there, fellow shiba fans. We adopted “Snow,” our very vocal shiba inu, a few months ago, and she took some time to adapt. Snow had been behaving well up until a few days ago, and we hadn’t had a screaming incident since the first week we brought her home. She’s a lovely young lady. When my husband returned home earlier this week, the dilemma emerged (he was working in another state and had our small chihuahua with him). Snow has had these fits since then, where she cries nonstop for 10-15 seconds when she is touched or for no obvious reason at all. This occurs on a daily basis (today it happened 3 times). I understand that shibas are notorious for their shrieking, but I was hoping for some advice on how to make Snow feel more at ease. Our other dog has been with us for a while and has gotten along swimmingly with Snow. Snow simply ignores her, but she has been extremely responsive recently. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated! You’d think she was being killed from the volume of her screams… Please assist me! 4 responses Log in or sign up to leave a comment on sharesavehidereport100% Upvoted Sign UpSign In Sort by the strongest.
Shiba inu scream
Don’t be fooled by the fact that Shibas are one of the quietest dog breeds. If you’re the proud owner, you’re probably already aware that it can whine, yell, and make a variety of other strange noises. Some also say it’s a dog with cat software and a dolphin’s speech device. Most of the time, it’s a really quiet breed, but some of them are big screamers or just like to scream when there’s too much drama (like when clipping their nails).
Basal breeds aren’t normally fond of being touched or treated. Handling can cause anxiety, fear, and dissatisfaction in your Shiba, and if this is the case, it will express itself loudly and clearly.
They scream to alert their parents that something dangerous is happening when they are puppies. Much like a wolf or a wild dog would. This also carries over into adulthood as they are forced to do something they don’t want to do, such as cut their nails or take a bath.
The short answer is no, but it all comes down to the individual dog in the end. Although the Shibas are normally quiet, some of them can find their voice and begin to bark. It’s more likely if your dog was raised with barking dogs.

So, what does a Shiba Inu scream sound like? A Shiba Inu scream is a sound made by the breed when it is anxious, nervous, or uncomfortable, and it wants the rest of the world to hear. While it may seem disturbing, the Shiba Inu’s scream is as common as whining in other breeds.
Some sound like a cross between wine and a howl, but with a higher pitch. Others sound like a louder and prolonged version of a squeaky trap, with a high-pitched squealing noise that sounds like a coach whistle. One can be far more tolerable than the other.
Trips to the vet or a pet grooming appointment are the two most common situations that cause a Shiba Inu to scream. If you’re inadvertently introducing them to a situation, the scream is intended to alert you to their displeasure.
There’s just one way to get an adult Shiba Inu to stop crying. Determine the source of their screams and eliminate the source. They’ll yell when being treated at the vet, but when they’re ready to go, they’ll stop.

We try to ignore him entirely before he stops, knowing that this can / should help in the long run. We live in a townhouse, but we can’t let him scream all morning out of consideration for our neighbors. It would also be good if my wife and I could maintain our sanity.
It’s important to understand that this type of scream is completely natural for a dog. When puppies are separated from their litter, they can scream incessantly. That behavior changes over time, but it makes sense for the dog: it allows him to reconnect with his social community. So don’t get irritated or nervous, and don’t hate the dog; he isn’t trying to test your sanity (writing this also helps trying to convince myself…).
The next point to consider is elimination: depending on the dog (I’m not sure if Shibas have any special requirements in this regard), 11 weeks could be too young to have full control. He might really need to pee or poop in the morning.
Then there’s the preparation. It’s not a good idea to train at 6 a.m. because you’re half asleep, worried about the noise, and so on. When you’re calm and happy, and all of his needs have been met, you should train him (eg. elimination).
