How often does your Golden bark? When do they?

I kind of want to ask this because my Sandy has barked only a couple of times. She is 5 1/2 months old and it always surprises me when she does it because it is very rare for her. She growls friendly when we play tug, but other than that she is a very very quiet dog.
I tell people that she doesn't bark and either they don't believe me or are very surprised.
How about your Golden? Are they quiet like mine or does something trigger them?

My golden that past in her 10 years of life I could probably count on 1 hand how many times she barked. The couple of times I remember was when she was playing and was excited and let out a bark and it almost seemed like she surprised herself lol.

I don't remember Brooks barking much when he was a puppy (maybe some at the vacuum cleaner, or at about 4-6 months when he saw some outdoor decorations on someone's lawn and it scared him).
However, he was boarded when he was about 20 months old with some farm dogs who did territorial barking along their fence line and when he came home, he began doing the same barking along our property line (in the evenings when he would go out for the last time before bed).

Tayla will bark if trying to engage Jesse in play because it frustrates her that 15 year old Jesse rebuffs every effort Tayla makes towards here. That is about it. She never barks at the doorbell.

Max will bark at the door bell, or if someone knocks, or if he hears something going on near the backyard. Otherwise, he is pretty quiet. Do not remember how much he barked when he was a puppy.

Molly barks when she is trying to get another dog to play. She barks at my BF the same way when he gets her riled up (she thinks he's a dog). When she is frightened she will also bark. So there is a trigger for when she barks. In her normal state she is very quiet.

Every time a squirrel farts in the woods.

Okay, maybe not EVERY time, but it sure seems like it sometimes. Now that the leaves are off the trees, Max finds it necessary to let me know every time one of the neighbors comes home, a deer walks by, a squirrel wanders past, a fox is in the driveway........oh, the joys of country living!

Rain barks ALL THE TIME. I always tell people our Chihuahua taught her to bark...She barks at people walking pass (all the time) the house she barks at squirrels, she barks at people with hats and things she's afraid of. Oh and she barks when shes in the yard

We had many breeds when I was growing up. Yorkshire Terriers, A Beagle, a Cocker Spaniel, mutts, and even a Great Dane. We lived in the country so anybody or any car coming up the drive would be greeted with barking.
So I was surprised that Sandy never barks. But we have our own business in the house so it is always busy here. I guess since she grew up with all of this, it doesn't phase her in the least.
Kind of happy it is somewhat normal for her to be quiet.

Jasper barks at anything and everything, can you drive you stir crazy sometimes, especially as we live in a fairly busy building! You would have thought he would be used to the noises he hears but he still has to bark everytime he hears a door go, voices, wind, absolutely nothing in particular, its a wonder im not mad ......
