Gunther is my 9 month old pup and he only barks very very rarely. Maybe a handful of times to get my husband to play and when he wants my mother in laws dog (who hates him) to play. He has never been vocal towards people (other than wanting my husband to play) or strangers. Is this odd? Will it ever change? I have no issue with his lack of barking, I know when he sees someone because he goes into the what I consider "alert mode" ears way up, head held very tall and just throws off the vibe of "I'm watching you :wild: " Anyway is his behavior odd in a gsd?
