Hi all. We (myself and Chewie the black lab) are new here and I have a question. Does anyone else have a very vocal puppy? Chewie is 12 weeks old and has been barking for attention and when there's food around. Ignoring and redirecting him is (slowly) working but he still has the odd barking episode. A recent meal of pasta Bolognese was just too tempting for him and he lost all self control. Weirdly, he mostly barks at me, rather than my husband. Could this be because he is more strongly bonded with me? He is definitely a mummy's boy. He also has a wide array of different vocalizations: - I'm really tired - he yawns out loud - I'm chewing things - I'm licking my bits (lovely...) - I'm warm and snuggly and happy The vocalizations are quite sweet. The barking not so much. Do people find that their pups get less vocal over time? We live in a townhouse so it would be great if our neighbours didn't hate us!
