Quincy the Dog’s Adorable Noises Explained!

If you’re a fan of adorable pet videos – and who isn’t – you are probably a fan of online sensation Quincy The Dog, who is known for his cute noises. The Doctors explain why the dog seems to have a voice of his own!

We are joined by the star pooch and his owner Patrick, who explains that the 7-year-old Bichon Frise has made these noises his entire life. A seemingly random video posted on Vine led to the dog becoming an online star for his singing, crying, and howling. Quincy has racked up close to a million views on YouTube.

Veterinarian Dr. Ruth MacPete explains why dogs make sounds like the ones that have made Quincy famous.

“It’s normal actually for dogs to vocalize… a lot of dogs will vocalize or howl when they hear high-pitched noises and it’s just a form of communication that dogs have and it goes back to their wolf ancestors. It is how they talked to other dogs in the pack,” she tells The Doctors. While Quincy’s noises are adorable, she warns that not all pet behaviors, like excessive jumping, should be encouraged when training your dog.
