View Full Version : My dog doesn't bark

09-11-2005, 12:01 AM
I just got a Jack Russell Terrier on its 6th month birthday. I realized after i brought it home that it didn't bark at all. The whole day I've been trying to get it to bark but all it does is whine. I called up the pet store and they said to wait about 2 weeks for the dog to get comfortable in its new environment. Is that normal? Please help

I wouldn't be too worried about it. Most people who have JR's can't keep them quite. :)

If you bought him from the pet store he probably came from a byb though. Which isn't good. :?

Most dogs in a new place will NOT bark. Trust what Salem said. JRT's can be VERY "barky". DON'T encourage him to bark at this stage or he'll think it pleases you and you will be very unhappy in a year. :)

He'll bark on his own when he is ready!
