It is normal for dogs to bark at each other. If you want your dog to stop barking you need to train him. I trained my dog to bark and then I trained her not to bark. This allows me to tell her to quit barking. Good Luck.
Clari,I really hope I am reading your post wrong! You said your dog is only 4 weeks old? If that is the case, the puppy should be with the mother and siblings. That is WAY too young to be by itself!
If you posted wrong, and meant 4 MONTHS. Some dogs just bark more than others. If there is no medical problems, than now is a great time to go to obedience class, and get your puppy some social skills.
Animals, what animals? My children just have alot of hair!
i think wanting dogs to bark is alot like wanting your toddler to learn how to speak .... when it happens you wish to some higher power they would shut up
i don't think you have anything to worry about right now ... once your puppy matures he/she will bark. though i may be wrong on that ... scout is turning 7 soon and she does not bark...not a sound. but i have 3 others who gladly share that responsibility
I've never been around a quiet Chi! Maybe the longcoats tend to be quieter, IDK? Unless the dog is lethargic or acting strangly, I'd be happy w/ a quiet dog. My Rottie hardly barks at all and it's so nice compared to the neighbors' Labs.
