Default Question about spoo puppy

I have had my puppy for a little over 1 week and she is just fantastic but I have yet to hear her bark. Is that odd? I have a 8 year mini schnauzer and she barks all the time . Are poodles normally this quite? She is quite playful and not shy at all. Just curious?

My poodle, Fifi, only barked if someone knocked on the door or if my husband came home, otherwise , she was always silent. She did not bark at all the last year of her life. She was mostly deaf towards the end so maybe that is why.

So far Canyon is very quiet. I have heard him bark quietly only three times. When he wrestles Ryker he will growl at times but again quietly. Ryker on other hand barks and enjoys growling loudly. But he does not overly bark. They do not even bark when someone comes to the door (not even knocking or ringing the doorbell). They only bark while playing, mostly with each other. Funny thing is that Canyon is more of the wilder man and Ryker is more of the sensitive one.

My poodle have all been barkers from day 1, so consider yourself lucky!

My lab, on the other hand, is quiet as a mouse. I can count on 1 hand the number of times I've heard him bark in his 4 1/2 years of life. Never barks, at anything. Not knocks on the door, other dogs, nothing.

Misha is 9 1/2 weeks old and is quite the barker, but only when she is trying to get the other dogs to play.

It took both my spoo and my mpoo some time before they "discovered" how to bark. I'm sure yours will figure it out. =)

Fallen is two years old and he just started barking this summer, only because I found out he doesn't like cats and there are quite a few around. He's very quite in the house, but he will bark a welcoming bark when he hears my car pull in the garage. So be patient, it will come.

We got Beau as a six-month-old, and for a while, we too wondered if he knew how to bark. I remember we were all surprised to hear him the first time -- his bark is pretty impressive for a little guy! Almost three years later, and he's still not a big barker, for which we're grateful. He only barks when someone knocks or rings the bell, or when he's detected "prey" in the backyard. (Two very distinct barks.)

Oh my goodness. That pup is adorable! My Andy very rarely barks. He will occationally let us know if he hears someone approaching the door, but that is it.

Spike took a while to "Find his Voice", but he's got it now! (14 mos). About 6 months he started barking at EVERYTHING! Now, he barks when he wants to inform us of anything - from potential predators to an empty food bowl, to a ball behind a chair...

We don't mind, because there is an awareness that there is a dog (who sounds really huge and mean) in our house, and our neighborhood is not quite as safe as it has been for the past few years, but not quite as bad as it was a couple of decades ago...
