Create a situation which make her confuse or irritating.
1. Do some workout like jogging, walking for 1 hour.
2. Show your lab her favourite treats.
3. Keep the treats at some height (on window or wall), which can be visible to her but not reachable.
4. As she is hungry, she tries to get it by herself, then she get irritated and bark at them. At that very instant praise her and give her treats. Practice this for some time and you get a dog which bark on command.

Ok what suraj says is that irritate the dog and it will Bark! Even humans shout when they are angry or irritated.
Labradors are generally People friendly dogs or social dogs. In the initial puppy stage they are very friendly with everyone who comes to your house, this sort of Friendliness with everyone dissappears when the lab brain matures.. this happens when its 3 years old.
You Lab might start barking at suspicious things or strangers when she is 2 years old or so... but i also have to tell you that this is not the case with every lab... some labs can be agressive, shy, crazy or anything else depending on its Breeding.
Just wait for some more months and u will notice she will start doing so.
Also why would u want ur Dog to Bark?? It gets very irritating to you and your neighbours if it starts barking all the time... Imagine the lab barking in the middle of the night just because it heard some noise? It will be terrible... So give it time...
If you want a Frequent Barking Dog then you should get a Pomeranian, Indian Spitz or a terrier!
Cheers... by the way... i have a LAB too

Very true.. a Pomeranian can really bark day and night like crazy (my house owner has one).. one trick we play at times is to imitate our 5 months Lab.. I guess it irritates him and he barks instantly.. however, I am trying to teach him to bark on command, that's giving me a hard time..
