I had always heard that Aussies tend to be 'barkers' and I know a few that can validate that claim (with gusto). For this reason, Welly has me totally puzzled. He has only barked maybe 5 times since I got him at 10 weeks and he is 8 months now. What gives? Even another dog barking in the same room doesn't get him going. Me and other family members have even tried to get him to bark by getting him riled up and making barking noises ourselves. He just stares at us like we are nuts. I know his mom barks when people come to the door, which I like for security reasons. I know people usually have the opposite to deal with- barking too much- but I am totally baffled.

Abbey never barks in the yard. The only time she barks is when someone comes to the door, and it's just a warning "boof" to let us know.

I think barking is more of an issue with understimulated aussies. Desoto never barked until he was around 6 months. He barks when there is a legit reason (loud noise outside, someone at the door etc) But thats it. I always heard that rough collies where terrible barkers and I never had an issue with mine either

Dot's always been a barker, she has a really high-pitched "Yip!" But that could be the Mini-aussie side. laugh out loud

Zuby only barks at other dogs at this stage and mainly in a playful way. He takes the play posture with rump in the air and barks a couple times to get the other dog's attention. He is four months.

Make sure Welly is not deaf as some Aussies have that problem. It is usually genetic. My Aussie doesn't bark alot a home but if she sees another dog she barks and barks. Grimmyblue dog

I think its an individual thing not a breed thing. Thomas barks when suspicious people walk by the house or animals are outside he wants to chase but thats it. His sister Madeleine however barks a lot more, whenever she gets frustrated basically lol. Can't get on the bed, off the bed, out of the crate, to the food, find the perfect toy . . . .SHE BARKS lol

Now that Zuby s older (5+ months), he is barking louder and more. He barks at critters in the woods around dusk, probably deer. I'm trying to get him to bark a few times and then come to me to let me know, instead of going on and on.

Rex barks when he is playing and when somebody walks by our house(which I like). I hope he doesn't start to bark a lot though,because he has a REALLY annoying bark. haha it's true
