Is it normal for his age to bark (alerting us) when someone opens our gate? Its kinda cute because he modulate his voice to make it sound deep, Im just a little bit worried that this is a sign of aggression. thanks in advance!

At that age it is most likely curiousity or fear. I remember when my pup came home at 11 weeks. He had a little attitude, and barked when he saw my female coming. I doubt it was because he was going to attack.

You're welcome. He will most likely develop a protective instinct of his house and pack as he matures so be sure to monitor that. Without knowing the breeding of your pup, I'll make a general statement: work on a foundation of obedience and control so you're able to more easily address this if/when it develops.

I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing, but don't know your situation and things can go bad quickly with an aggressive dog.
