We recently asked our Chihuahua Community to answer this question:
Do Chihuahuas bark a lot?
Here’s what they had to say. Lets us know if you agree in the comments!
From my experience, my dog didn’t, mom’s dog didn’t but I have seen some chi’s bark alot with strangers or strange noises. My dog just was easy going and wasn’t afraid of strangers. Guess it depends on if the dog is skittish or bold and proud. Plus I always included my chi in everything I did so this could be why she was pretty quiet.
Harry barks when someone comes to the door and will bark at them for a few minutes then he’s usually ok. Until he brings them a toy! If they won’t throw it for him, he barks until they do! Lol! Or if he wants a cookie!
They can be barkers but are very trainable. My Precious hates the UPS truck, especially if driver had the audacity to leave s package at our doorstep!😂
Mine only bark when they hear (or think they hear) someone knocking on the door, and if they are inside the house or their yard and they see other unknown people. Other than that mine just kinda sleep the day away or stare outside.
It is according to if you train them to or not to . I have always trained mine to do alert barks but when I say ok I know then she stops .
Yep mine bark at everything and sometimes nothing at all but I have just started to train them not to bark. I still love them to pieces though 🐶💕💕
Start early with taking them out, into noise, meeting people. Ours don’t bark and are calm. I have rescued some that are very nervous and bark a lot but they were not taught to stay calm. Some are nervous but you can teach them a lot. I love them. We have two now good babies.
My dogs all follow the leader. If I have one that likes to bark, it become contagious! Our Chihuahua barked sometimes, but not excessively!
Most of the ones we have had were great guard dogs. They bark alot. But love them to pieces.
Mine do sometimes and latly they howl when they hear dogs outside.
My Mieko barks at the UPS man, mailman, and when the doorbell rings.
Mine didn’t. One would bark an alarm if she heard a noise, or the doorbell. The other might if she felt like it. They didn’t bark just for the heck of it.
Mine will literally bark at the wall
Not with the immediate family. Yes with strangers and other dogs.
Haha haha yess!
