Seems to vary depending on the pup as per the posts on this link How old do puppies need to be to bark? (lab, terriers, vet) - * - City-Data Forum

It all depends on the puppy. My last guy barked at 7 mos old at a grocery bag blowing around in the wind. We actually thought he was mute or something. He passed away at 13 last March. My new guy started barking at 7 weeks old, at the mailmail. Sarge's brother was 3 weeks old and barked at my son during a puppy visit. He was then nicknamed "Mouth".

i didn't think a 3 week old pup could do much.

My girl was 7 months before she did any serious barking. Before that it was mostly just crying.

I would say 7-9 months. The family cockapoo puppy is 10 months old, and started developing his bark around 3 months ago. It is the cutest little bark!!

My 11 week old mostly just whines and groans but I recently heard her bark at a squeeky tennis ball. Lol. She's so cute.

Mine barked at 3 months, but it wasn't a serious bark. That bark came at around 5-6 months.
