I apologize if this has been talked about before, but I am a nobie here so forgive me. But my 7 month old Shep/mix is not barking at any people or any dogs or even noise. When I take her for her daily walks and we see other people who walk up to me and say how pretty she is, she'll just sit and look pretty and wanting to be petted. I understand she is still a puppy but my wife and I would like her to bark more at strangers and noise more often. We got her to protect our home after been broken into mutilable times in 1 week. Is this normal for a 7 month and will she grow into this? She will bark her head off when she goes into her cage at night time and potty time so we knows how to bark. Any suggestions or inputs?
