Re: Barking and Jumping
My cattledog was a humane society rescue, I got her at 18 months. I think it was over a month before we heard her bark other than outside at a squirrel. The flip side is once she discovered that she could bark inside she did. Frequently. Never did get her to bark when people came to the door, but she would to: go out, come in, try and get me to hurry and feed her, get someone to play with her, or just because she could.
Enjoy the quiet while you can.
