Wow! Impatient much? Your posts are only three minutes apart!
What breed is the dog? I have Siberian Huskies, and they rarely bark. There is absolutely nothing to worry about. I can't think of any medical or behavioral issues that would make a dog not bark. If he is acting fine otherwise, thank your stars he's not a yapper! LOL!
I had an Aussie that very rarely barked either. She barked and took out after a guy once, because she thought he was going to hurt me. The only way to get her barking was to bounce a basketball. For some reason that really got her going. I don't suggest doing this to a scared young puppy though.
He's your friend,your partner,your defender your dog.You are his life,his love,his leader. He will be yours faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.You owe it to him to worthy of such devotion
What kind of dog is it? Is there a reason you need the pup to bark? I wouldn't worry about it. Some dogs are barkers and others aren't. I personally don't like barky dogs, expecially if they bark for no reason.
My nan had a dog. They got him at 8 weeks (if i`m corrrect) and until one day he got attack by the nieghbors rottie. They never heard him bark. They didn`t think he could ever bark. They said they were thankful for the quiet. lol.
He is ur friend, ur partner, ur defender, your DOG. You r his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful & true, 2 the last beat of his heart. You owe it 2 him 2 be worthy of such devotion
All I can say is where can I get a dog like that? My puppy barks a lot, not necessarily at everything but when I leave, she can bark for 2 hours straight or when she's in the car and I'm pumping gas. She has a piercing shrill bark - I love her but I would take a non-barking dog anyday!
i have had my mini dachshund puppy for 3 months now and have heard her bark a total of maybe 2 times.. once at her reflection in the mirror and once just because and it scared the crap out of her. i don't think its not normal, it depends on the dog.
