    How often would this be? The thing with parrots is I love the way they look and I love there features but after a while hearing smaller, more annoying mob noises ALL the time gets on my nerves so pls specify on the growling radius and how often this would be

    Dogs growl and bark depending on who they are as a dog in real life. However in Minecraft, it could be a genetic thing or a probability of growling. I'd say to set the radius to 8 blocks from the dog.

    They would be useful say in a mining strip, a zombie or a creeper is coming behind you, they would growl and bark at them if they suddenly appeared.

    I think this is balanced, in that the dog just growls so you simply know a mob is near you, instead of a parrot which will imitate the exact mob. The feature is already in the game, I think overlapping tiers of the same feature add to a richness and aliveness of the game, increasing emergent gameplay, which is what its all about.
