Barking......or lack of it

Post by Alan&Jean » 19 Apr 2016, 00:17

Hi all
Ziva has just turned 5 months and she is doing really well. She goes to "school" Saturday mornings and seems to enjoy it a lot. Now, we are surprised that she hardly ever barks. We're not sure if it's something that starts later. She's around other dogs a lot who bark at her but her response is to just wag her tail and chase them. What do you think ?

Aren't you the lucky one? Lulu was a quiet pup. She makes up for it now. I suppose it is like babies, learning to talk

It will come!

Daisy is our barker who sounds the alarm. Beamish and Poppy rarely bark, in fact if Poppy needs to go out in the garden Daisy will bark for her to let us know!

Roker wasnt much of a barker early on but it came with time. That said he will only now bark in a couple of situations.....either whilst out walking when he has escorted the ball after i've thrown it and instead of bringing it back will stand next to it barking until i kick it again and when in the confines of the house\garden\just behind a window he will be all big and brave and bark at anything and anyone that walks past or is in a neighboring garden. In fact we're just back from a weekend away stopping in a cottage near Robin Hoods Bay, they had a field with a couple of donkeys in across the drive and each morning our alarm was Roker warning us of the impending danger of two donkeys eating their breakfast 50yds away with two fences and drive way between us!

Dude never barks when we are out, but always lets us know if someone is at the door. He has been known to bark at other dogs, but it's v rare...only if they pester him! It's funny, he makes himself big and does one loud bark( in fact his bark is very deep and large sounding :lol: )Anny

Austin hardly ever barks. He started barking when he was about 6 months + I think
Now he only barks if someone rings the doorbell. Or if he gets frustrated when we don't throw his ball :roll: :mrgreen:
He doesn't do it when playing with other dogs

Our Monty was also a quiet pup. Hardly heard a peep out of him til he hit 8 months. He now barks when someone walks past the window (if he can be bothered) or when he hears a noise such as knocking or banging. He also likes to play the big man when he spots a cat. Goodness knows what would happen if he actually got to chase it. He'd be back in the house like a shot I'd imagine!
