Default Pup doesn't bark at all...

Hi folks,

My 6 month old purebred GSD, Jack has been with me for like 3 months but has only barked for 2 or 3 times (when he saw a cow or a goat). I've owned two GSDs before this one, they were pretty vocal.

I know dogs that don't bark are good, but Jack wouldn't bark or show any agitation even when he needs to go potty, and every time I've to guess whether it is the 'time' or not. So we are having 'accidents' almost every day when I fail to make my guess on time since I can't keep an eye on him 24/7.

How can I make him bark when he has to go (or when he sees a 'danger'). I've tried crate, tethered him... but nothing worked. He's in perfect health and has no other issues whatsoever.

Look forward to your insightful responses.

Many thanks,
Ali.
