Q:

Why is my 45-day-old Doberman female puppy not barking or making any sounds?

Hi everyone,

I recently got a 45-day-old Doberman female puppy and I have noticed that she doesn't bark or make any sounds. I am a bit concerned about this as I have seen other puppies of her age make a lot of noise.

I am new to owning a dog and do not have much experience with Dobermans. Is it normal for a Doberman puppy to be quiet or is there something wrong with my puppy?

I have been feeding her well and taking care of her properly. She is active and playful but just doesn't seem to make any sounds. Any advice or information on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

I have also experienced puppies who aren't so vocal. My first Doberman didn't bark much when he was a puppy, but he started barking a lot as he grew older. It's possible that your puppy is just naturally quiet or hasn't found her voice yet.

That being said, it's always good to take your puppy to the vet for a check-up just to be sure. The vet can listen to your puppy's breathing and check her vocal cords to make sure everything is okay.

In the meantime, keep socializing your puppy with other dogs and people. Dogs often learn to bark from other dogs, so spending time with other puppies or adult dogs might encourage her to start barking. Just remember to be patient and give her time to learn.

Hope this helps!

Hi there,

I have experience with Doberman puppies, and I can tell you that some puppies just don't bark as much as others. Some are naturally quieter than others. However, if you're concerned that your puppy isn't making any sounds at all, you may want to take her to the vet to make sure there's nothing wrong with her vocal cords.

That being said, it's still early in your puppy's development, and she may start barking soon. My Doberman puppy was also pretty quiet at first, but as she grew older, she became more vocal. Just give your puppy some time to develop and see if she starts to make any sounds.

In the meantime, keep up the good work with taking care of her! Good luck!

Hello everyone,

I've had experience with a quiet Doberman puppy before as well. For the first few weeks, she was very quiet and didn't make any sounds. Her bark only began to develop around the 3-month mark.

However, if you're noticing other signs of distress or discomfort in your puppy, such as difficulty swallowing, coughing, or gagging, it could be a sign of an underlying medical condition, and a trip to the vet may be necessary.

Otherwise, it can simply be that your puppy is taking her time finding her voice. It's important to continue engaging her in play and socializing her, as this can help her become less anxious and more confident in her surroundings. Keep in mind that puppies grow and develop at their own pace, so try not to worry too much.

Good luck!

Hi all,

I've also had experience with a Doberman puppy who was very quiet when he was young. However, as he grew older and became more comfortable in his surroundings, he started to bark more.

It's important to remember that every dog is different and has their own personality. In some cases, a puppy may simply be naturally quiet. However, if you're concerned about your puppy not making any sounds, you can always speak to a vet to put your mind at ease.

In the meantime, continuing to socialize your puppy and exposing her to different situations can help her become more comfortable and confident. This may encourage her to start barking as she becomes more familiar with her environment.

Good luck with your new puppy!
