Oh yeah. TOki barks at everything now. He barks when he wants me to get him something under neath his bed. He barks when he hears a little noise and barks when someone is at the door. He barks at his toys. I don't blame him. He needs to use his voice for something. Im just glad his not an obsessive barker.

Sounds like Toki's quite the communicator! I don't mind that sort of barking - after all, a dog's got a right to talk too!

Hi
Renee750il- My pets name is "Bruno". We usually go to gardens. There he plays quite well but he runs behind other dogs. I know 1 year old GSD is qite a small to do guardining, but he dont show any sign of barking for anything. Even if the bell rings or some stranger is passing through the yard.

Can he prove a good protection dog for us? I have started with the training through a trainer.

Thanks
-Nilesh

dalvi nilesh, is your dog a saint bernard? How old and and malefemale? The Bruno sounds like a saint. That is so cool if you do have a saint too. I have a saint that is 12 weeks old.

Dalvi, some dogs don't do a lot of barking, being more inclined to just go take care of things. Purdue and Bear, two of the GSDs I've been privileged to share my life with, didn't bark if there was a way they could see whatever needed checking on or if they could get to it. Bimmer (GSD/wolf) is very much the same way, checking on things and then either taking care of the problem or barking for one of us or one of the Filas to assist.

Also, some dogs don't gain the confidence in their own abilities to guard until they are more mature - around 18 months to two years sometimes. Training will help build his self-confidence, as will taking him out into the world (on leash, of course) to accompany you. A self-confident dog is the best guardian you can ask for, particularly if it is a dog that has good judgement and doesn't just bark at everthing and everyone that passes.

I was teaching Victor to leave it...and then pick it up. I put his favorite toy down and said leave it...leave it..he understood, but now he has reversed the tables on me..he places his toy in front of me and barks...backing up and looking at me..is he telling me to leave it or is it just my imagination? The barking has gotta go tho...when he plays is the only time he barks but I don't want it started ...so I gotta be mean and tell him knock it off. He will have to find another way to communicate. Wonder what it will be?

LOL, Smkie - My Bear taught me that dogs will learn to use a "house voice" and bark softly. Bimmer is so funny when he does it; he just snaps his mouth and no sound comes out! He has such a range of vocalizations other than barks and he's taught the girls to "talk" in the house.

Unfortunately, Kharma's been using her vocal skills to complain at 2:00 a.m. when she wants Bimmer to move and let her have his spot at the foot of the bed . . .
