Lapres Hah! It's nice to know that they're just a vocal breed. I'll try to catch some video of her grunting, but the only one I have so far is her and her squishy donut toy:

Thank you for the replies! We all find the noises adorable!

Cheers!

It's not really a behavioral issue, and theres no need for me to correct it.. but I've just never come across a vocal puppy in this manner before! It's constantly like shes talking to us, where we'll talk to her, and she'll grunt back. It's been useful so far for us as her pitch changes when she gets something she likes, or gets something taken away like an empty food dish that she wants refilled.

Is this a common thing in GSDs?
Besides my experiences with 3 GSDs and what others have described about their GSDs....I'd say GSDs are a very "vocal" breed at times besides the obvious.

dogfaeries Sage is my talker. She woo-woos at me, groans, makes weird grumbling noises. I find it charming!

I took her over to my aunt's house the other day. Sage was sprawled on her side and my aunt was rubbing around on her. The noises coming out of that dog!! I've always said if you didn't know her, you would think she was growling at you. Nope. Just one vocal girl.

Neko I have 1 that started out like that. He sounded like he was in pain when he played with toys... Now at 1 and a half, he is a talker would not change a thing!

Jelpy GSD's are talkers. When I originally saw a GSD in a movie I thought they were just adding all the groans/whines/conversations etc. Then I got one in real life. They comment on everything like an advice columnist.

Zeeva At 4 years old, Zeeva groans and grunts when stretching, curling up into a comfy spot, yawning, and itching her ear. I think it's characteristic of the breed.

Sounds like your pup is a bit more expressive. Very adorable! Must video tape!
