Bella makes me laugh because she huffs like that Harry Enfield character. Tell her to get down she huffs, tell her to go in she huffs, the phone rings when she is sleeping she huffs, I sneeze she huffs it really is like having a stroppy teen.

All the bloody time. Quite often he will look at me first as if to say 'are you fucking kidding me' and then huff as he turns away. He is a brilliant sulker!

The worst is in the car. He is a real back seat driver Hmm

Ours used to be worst when we had an excitable little spaniel. She was so happy and bubbly but also slightly crazy. He would sometimes just look over to her and huff/sigh as if she was a silly younger sibling cramping his style!

Glad to know she's not the only one then. Is it a dog trait or something they picked up from humans I wonder Hmm

@fleshmarketclose our youngest (a boy) 16 months, answers back when told off. Our girl (5 years) actually does a physical sulk. We call it the resting goose.

Do your dogs huff?

I think there must be some element of them picking it up from us.

BiteyDog does like to make his feelings known Grin

Oh that is definitely a dog in a sulk Grin Eric doesn't huff but he growls if you make a noise when he is sleeping and he tells you off if you call him a poodle Grin and sits on exh's knee licking him until he reassures him he's a shih tzu Confused Eric also complains if you call him Turkey, he's a weird dog.

My dog huffs if you stroke her when she is not in the mood and she does some very human sounding groans as she sinks into a chair after a long day.

We have a St Bernard Cross collie who gives us the most hard done by look and does a huge huff everytime DP makes him get off the bed.

Oh yes I have a huffer....and if we ignore him and don't give into his Huffs he will steal something and hold it looking at us until we take it off him!!

Yep, sulks and hides things from time to time, found the PlayStation controller and car keys in his bed unchewed just hidden badly.

Yep, he huffs if he doesn’t understand what I’m asking him to do, and also if he thinks he’s done the right thing and a treat isn’t forthcoming quickly enough. Huffing escalates to flouncing, and then to throwing himself on the floor. Grin

Yes, my boy huffs when I stop hand feeding him treats (roast chicken mostly). He's very spoilt it but he deserves it.

Yep we've got a huffer. He's also a terrible sulker, I've been away for a couple of days and he won't even look at me. Come bedtime I know from experience that he'll go on Dh's side of the bed with his back turned to me. Once the light goes off though he'll come over to me for a cuddle. Coz I won't know when it's dark Hmm

Definitely!

He huffed this morning because he had to get up, huffed because he wanted toast, then again because it was raining on our walk and again when I got him back out of the car to drop him with my in-laws!

He's such a drama queen 😂

@Kayjay2018 My boy back chats too, especially when I tell him to stop barking at the students next door. He hates them.

Battendog huffs. He especially huffs when he is in the mood for playtime or trouble and instead I tell him to lie down. "Huff" he goes as he lies down - which is canine for "you're no fun!"

@MadCap I find it very funny, although if I understood dog bark language he may be saying something rude I wouldn't like!
