Watch as Dog Tries to Bark at Owner for the First Time: 'Indoor Woofs'

A dog called Beeba has left online commenters in stitches after a video showing her learning how to bark went viral on social media.

In the video, shared Sunday on TikTok by the dog's owner under the username Goldenwolfjuno, Beeba can be seen struggling to bark as her owner teaches her, then finally letting out her first bark.

The hilarious clip comes with a caption that says: "Watch my dog bark at me for the first time." This is followed by: "Rate that bark 0 - 10"

There are many different reasons why dogs don't bark, according to the Hill's Pet Nutrition website. One is breed disposition. Some breeds, such as basenji, have quiet temperaments and aren't geared toward a lot of barking. This doesn't mean they don't bark at all, just that they don't bark much, and when they do it sounds more like howling or whining.

Another reason your dog is not barking may just be its personality. In fact, some dogs are just too laid back to bother with barking, and others don't like the sound of their own barking. But it could also be vocal stress or a health problem.

If your dog has suddenly stopped barking or is trying to bark but can't make any noise, it could be that too much barking has strained its voice. It could also indicate a health problem, so in this case it's best to contact your veterinarian.
