She's young, learning new stuff everyday and she's got something to say about it. 'I'm so excited! Look at ME! I'm Here!!!'
Just try to keep it light, tell her shhh or whatever command you want to use and keep on her.
When she startles someone, apologize and laugh it off 'I'm sorry, she's trying out her big scary dog act' She'll feel your it's nothing vibe.
Doesn't do your nerves any good to know it's normal. Otto was a random nonsense barker at that age. It was really annoying!

He took up squirrel alerts at breakfast a few weeks ago. Nothing like a sudden deep bark before the first cup of coffee! I just keep on him, "ssssh, it's just a squirrel you silly"
