Has any of you ever experienced a puppy/dog that doe's not bark????? He can hear just fine and He whins like most puppies do, but I have never heard him bark. I thought that he was just a good, well natured puppy. As the weeks carry on and he is still not barking I am beganning to worry that something might be wrong!I need some advice please!I am going nut's with worry.
Has there been a reason for him to bark? Our puppies never bark prior to leaving our house at 8 weeks old, because their parents don't bark. Once you teach him to bark, you may never be able to stop him, so why start? If he growls or makes other noises, his vocal cords are just fine so don't worry.
He is your friend, partner, 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 be worthy of such devot
I agree - why do you want him to bark? We have a bulldog that we had from 8 weeks old and we heard her whine but she never barked. She was close to a year old before she ever did and it was a hilarious yippy bark out of this big 60 pound bulldog. She never had the need to before that I guess. As long as your dog is healthy otherwise and whines and does make noise I wouldn't worry about it. Does he act like he's trying to bark and not able to or you just haven't ever seen him even try? If he isn't even trying I wouldn't be concerned. Be thankful!
