My guy rarely barks he's 9 months too. He'll alert me if someone is at the door I tell him "okay thank you" and he stops. He's only barked at one person out in public it was on a walk and right after the guy knelt over and threw up and ran away! He sensed something was off...

He's a maturing German Shepherd -Nice and aloof ;-)
My pup won't give anyone else, besides my husband, the time of day and totally blows them off :-D I tell them he's not a lab :-P
