That's interesting. I would probably be able to pick it up. I seem to have a very wide range of sounds I can hear because I hear the high pitches, too.
We have a dog that growls. I've 'bah'ed him to stop numerous times and everybody else in the room was wondering why I was 'bah'ing him.
(Bah: The word used in the Barkbusters training methods. It simulates the sound a mama dog would make to her pups when they weren't doing what they were supposed to do. It is very effective - we now have 4 dogs that were relegated to a pen in the garage in the house with us with minimal issues. Still a work in progress but much, much better than it was.)
