Default strange barking/ crying when chasing another dog

When we went hiking Stark was chasing the other dog that went with us (they were playing), they got along great. They really got running, and Stark made a strange barking/ crying noise. It almost sounded like what I would imagine the sound a dog would make if you squeezed it. It was almost like a very short, high pitched squeaky bark. And he did it repeatedly only as they were running and he was chasing the other dog. The owner of the other dog said "Oh, he does that crazy barking when he chases things too." He had taken in a GSD at some point and fostered it and apparently it made the same noise when it would chase his dog too. Im just curious what this is? Has anyone else experienced this?
Thanks guys!

Delgado barks when he gets frustrated, like when he's playing chase with another dog and can't catch it

Prey bark. The low serious bark is for defense. The high pitched bark is chasing prey bark.

Yes! That's such a funny sound, isn't it? LOL, when we used to go to the cottage and my dog would make that noise, I'd be mortified thinking how far it carried across the lake - but nobody would ever think it was my GSD making that sound, that's for sure! Only other GSD owners, lol.

Chloe my Rat Terrier does this when she is frustrated that she can't whatever she is chasing. She also does it when we take her fishing and someone reals in a fish that she can't have. The noise she makes reminds me of a hyena cry, lol.

Oh my yes! Milla does this when she is running around with Phinneas. It's amazing that sound can come out of her!

Mine does that bark/scream thing when I tease her with a tug toy and won't let her have it. I too thought it was frustration of not getting what they want in a chase.

This is true! Whenever we hear this, we look at each other and say "someone's got a shepherd!" LOL!

Ha! Glad I know now. I was hoping I wasn't the only one. So, if its a prey bark is that a bad thing when he's chasing another dog? Or will he just make that noise when he is playing and chasing? I was trying so hard to think of how to describe this, hoping someone had experienced it and knew what I was talking about lol.

I'm so glad I found this threat.

Mine does this when chasing another dog at full stride and she can't catch it.

I thought she was in pain and had a hip/bone issue, but it sounds like she may just be frustrated at being so slow :-)
