My guy barks when he wants attention from humans or dogs. its a very loud intimidating bark so its hard to ignore but we try to in order to teach him its not the way to get attention. When something is alarming to him he gives a low but deep and serious growl. He's one and kinda nutty

I can count the number of times Chester has barked. Ive always wondered if that was normal but thanks to you I don't have to question it anymore lol. He's a very quiet pup sometimes too quiet but that's when he's up to no good lol

After reading through these posts, it seems that the Goldens who bark are not the only dog in the house. It may be something they have to learn. I do think Sandy surprised herself the few times she has barked. Almost like she didn't know she could.

Sierra is normally quiet at home, barks at the dog park sometimes.
Lance, I think likes to hear himself, he barks at me, when he's unhappy with Sierra, when he wants a drink from the tub faucet,when he thinks it peanut butter time...etc.
I do think his former owner encouraged the barking though.

Max is an only. He started barking early on. I called my husband to come home the first time I heard the "big boy bark" because I thought there must be an axe murderer outside! (It was deer.)

I don't know where he learned it, or if it's just natural, but he sure does it well!

Cody never barks. He's an only dog. He's "huffed" a couple times to let me know UPS is here. He does do a high yippy bark thing out of excitement for a minute when his Doggie Grams and Gramps come over.

The Golden across the the street barks up a storm all the time. She's an only dog.

I'm glad Cody doesn't bark.
Connie and Cody

Cookie will bark at deer if they dare come into her yard. Also, if our neighbor's dog gives his warning bark and we are outside, Cookie will run to the edge of our yard next to our other neighbor's house and bark to their dog, who in turn starts barking. It doesn't happen often, but it is funny to hear them communicating.

Other than that, she will only bark when someone leaves an open bag of chips on the counter. She's petite, so her bark scares neither deer nor potato chip bags.

Remy only barks at trucks and when I'm driving. He will typically stop barking at the trucks if I tell him to - but I have yet to find out how to get him to shut up when riding in the car.

It drives me mad as it is very loud in a small space!!! I know it's a topic for a different thread, but any and all suggestions on how to get him to stop would be appreciated.

If squirrels didn't exist, Poppy would never bark, but since they do and because we go into the woods everyday, she barks a few times a year.

For a long time when she was a puppy I wondered if something was wrong with her vocal cords since she never barked. Then she started barking at squirrels occasionaly.

It took me a long time to stop panicking when she barked in the woods. I used to think "coyotes!!" because we have lots of them around here, but now I think "just a poor little squirrel".

I love that she so rarely barks. Barks are so loud, they always frighten me
