Gorgeous, gorgeous dog! And the photo is really atmospheric, love it. But how did you manage to take these photos? I mean, are you allowed to take your dogs to museums/castles in the Czech Republic? Do you own it? Or is it just a park?
Thank you, I'm glad you like it. You are usually allowed to visit Czech castles with dogs, some require you to keep them on leash, and some castles even allow you to take the dogs inside for the tour through interiors;]
Raksha hardly ever howled when she was a puppy, if I remember correctly. I think that Raksha also howls when she feels lonely, but sometimes she howls without the lonely tone in it. Also when she is barking at some dog on the other side of our fence, she will often gradually change the barking into howling;]
I think you'll get her to bark eventually. I remember Raksha barking before she was a year old. But we definitely didn't reward her for that, as others present suggested we do, so that she learns to do that on command.
