What sound does a dog make in your language?

In English we usually write 'woof, woof' or for a little dog 'yup, yup'.
Which dosen't actually make the same sound as a dog in my opinion.
What is it in your language?

    • Martian? Or maybe you're the last of the Visigoths? Lol
      What country is your dog from?

    • Poland. But my dog was actually a Nazi Shepherd.

    • My folks have a purebread Shepard. Both his'parents' from Germany. As a history buff I call him nazi dog.
      Once in a while I bring my Jewish friend by their place for a swim or something and command the dog to 'sick Jew'! Lol
      (He looks like a mean nazi dog but is sweet as heck!)

  • Dogs here say, "Arf arf".
    Sometimes, "Woof woof".
    And sometimes, "Raf raf"
    Thanks for confusing us, onomatopoeia.

  • You're the first English speaker I've ever encountered who claims that it's 'yup yup' and not 'yip yip' or 'yap yap'.

    • Ah yes guess I was a little too tired and put u instead of i. Whoops.
      And just googling it is cheating. Because Google does not spark conversations with actual people.

    • I saw a very similar thing to that link as a fun poster on the subway... saying how in spite of how differently it sounds in other languages, it always indicates its dog-ness by the fact they make the sound twice lol

    • Ya funny how the twice thing seems to be universal. But the representation of the sound is not.

  • "Wan wan" Japanese.
