Do French Bulldogs Bark a Lot?

Frenchies aren’t excessive barkers like Chihuahuas and Beagles, making them perfect apartment dogs. They usually bark only when needed, though they are known for making a lot of funny sounds when ‘talking’ to their family. But there are exceptions to every rule, and some French Bulldogs could bark a little more than others for numerous reasons.

Why Do Frenchies Bark?

If you find your Frenchie constantly barking at anything or anyone, It might be asking for attention. Common causes behind this excessive vocalization could be anxiety, fear, or insecurity regarding his territory. Your pet may bark at strangers or other dogs if he considers them a threat, or it might bark when it’s scared, like when all the lights go out at night.

Frenchies also bark if left alone. They are high on separation anxiety, and each time their owners leave the house, they start barking aloud, a trait that might be a nuisance to neighbors.

Sometimes, it could signal a health problem, and perhaps your pet is barking to let you know of some pain or discomfort. If you find him displaying other traits or symptoms alongside barking, like scratching or pawing, reluctance towards eating, and lack of mobility, it might be a good idea to see a vet.

What Does Their Bark Sound Like?

They don’t produce a sharp, shrill bark but have a deep, gruff voice that appears much more pronounced when compared to their small size.
