My GSD puppy doesn't bark to strangers

My old GSD was naturally protective, so he barked to strangers when someone entered my house boundary. But This 7 month Old GSD (weight: 80 Lbs) doesn't bark to strangers at all. Even in night. He just take rest and see. How to train him to bark ?

He's still a puppy. So, he probably just hasn't found his voice yet. When he does, you will wish he would shut up. Koby found his voice around 9 months old and hasn't shut up since. Good Luck!

It's very much easier to let Dogs teach Dogs many things, barking being one of them. Take him to a Dog Park, and let him mingle with Adult Animals.

My 7 month old GSD picked it up pretty early so we trained her to bark when we say "Who's that?".
I guess you could ask that question when there's something going on around the property.

maybe he's a thinking dog instead. He'll bark sooner or later. Enjoy the quiet for now. I love females they are barkers.
Sounds kind of weird but you can even bark yourself low and as a matter of fact when someone knocks.
My problem is having quiet sometimes :)
