Captured on video, the puppies are playing and one of them shows bossy behavior and is being very vocal. This Shih Tzu begins vocalising by barking loudly. Canine vocalisation usually begins when a puppy is around two-to-three-weeks-old and generally consists of grunts and whines. At seven-to-eight-weeks-old, the vocalisation will develop into stronger sounding barks, although some dogs wait as long as 16 weeks before even making an attempt.
