    I don't see it as a problem, but I don't know why my amstaff doest bark... No matter what, he is always in silence, even when "killing" a toy or a tire...

    Is that a normal behavior or breed caractheristic ?

    Sorry if it sound a dumb question, but I'm curious

    Some dogs are just more vocal than others.

    Lizzie rarely ever barked as a puppy. Like never. Not at the door, not at the other dogs, never. Once she hit around 18 months she started more. She still isnt crazy vocal but i would say she is vocal like a regular dog. Or she could just of started copying my boy who wont shut up for nothing. So it may change with time.

    Hi Lizzie,

    Same scene here, to be honest my wife heard it once... But never more. I've installed a camera to monitor him during our absence and no barking at all...
    It's ok. But I was trying to confirm if it is related to breed or no connection.

    They aren't known to really be one way or the other. So you will get them on each side of the bar. Enjoy it while it last is my suggestion. Lol

    My bull mutt is not barky at all. She will occasionally growl at a deer or something passing the house, but I can probably count the number of times I've heard her bark on both hands. She's 14 months and hasn't gotten much more vocal. Now, give her a tug toy and she'll make some demonic noises, but never a big barker.

    My am staff didn't bark until he was 12 weeks and it was such a deep bark for how little he was. He just would whine or cry but never bark only time he barks is when other dogs don't play with him or he really wants something. I haven't heard him bark in 3 months
