When we first got Jadey she wouldn't bark and when she did she flinched and cowered away from us in case we hit her - she must've got hit by her previous owners for barking so she was very weary.

We spent loads of time encouraging her to bark and really praising her when she did. It took time but shes ok now.
She barks when we say "say please" and she sometimes barks when the door goes.
All dogs are different and I'd say that Diesel is perfectly normal.xx

The breed is not known for barking, being vocal with their owners maybe with sounds other than barking, but are especially not known for being watch dogs and barking at the door. Not to say some don't do it though. Kane too, only a handful of times we've heard him bark. In a neighborhood of barking dogs some of our other neighbors comment on how nice it is to live next to a quiet dog.

Angel would be our barker. She nearly took a fit when some guy was using the side of our wall to walk across to get to the other side of our street. She barks when she hears strange noises & barks at Yazmin to play with her.

Yazmin on the other hand doesn't really bark at all. She has a wee gruff when playing with Angel but she does have a whine in the mornings as if to say "i'm up now & busting for loo".

Missy will bark at Mista when she wants his place on the sofa or wants to play, and Mista will bark when he wants to come in from the garden or wants us to play. They never bark at anyone who comes to the door they just out of the window all excited to see who it is. But they will only bark a few times, not had any complaints from the neighbours.

If they don't bark, count your blessings. Much better than a dog which won't shut up. I would never encourage a dog to bark because if the neighbours complain it can be a nightmare of trouble.

Maddie only barks when door goes or postman comes and when i go to answer door she'll walk in front of me to protect me. I would like her to bark more cuz other staffs over the years do they bark when they wanted attention or feeding or to go outside guess it depends on the dog

Lily doesn't bark very often, only when strangers walk past the house at night or if she hears an unusual noise. When I first rescued her I took her to the vet as after 3 weeks she hadn't barked at all but of course she was perfectly ok.

Milo very rarely makes any noise associated with dogs! Cats and pigs, but rarely dog noises! Probably heard him bark two or three times thats all.

Roxy doesn't bark, she makes lots of very odd noises when she wants your attention but not barking. Roxy makes lots of piggy time noises to Wiretim, so much so that when we take her up our local a lot of them squeal like a pig at her!

scoob very rarely barks, he seems to do it randomly. and does it more at night if he does bark at all. the only time your guaranteed a bark is if you get his boomer ball out. he stands and barks/howls at it! lol

I have only ever heard Rocco bark when we are doing agility!

Dixie will bark when someone new comes into the house or if I get in from work and Rocco gets to me first, she will bark as if to say 'I'm here too mum' lol

Max & Bonnie bark when the dog behind us barks or stirrs them. And Bonnie barks to advise us that she is taking a dirt bath, or to get max's attention...
