Hi :color:
Does chihuahuas bark a lot? (i know that probably have to do with the temper of the dog)
But if a chihuahua barks is that very loud? I live in a small apartment and i am afraid that my chihuahua will make my neighbors angry if she barks :cussing: ...

Chihuahuas typically aren't "yappy" dogs, unless they weren't raised properly. They are very good watch dogs, and WILL alert you when something unfamiliar approaches their territory that they don't like. ex. Seeing the mailman outside makes Chiquita alert me, kinda cool cause then I know when the mail comes :) She knows the "Quiet NOW" command I gave to her, means HUSH your mouth right now! And she will quit barking. I used to live in an apartment with her and none of my neighbors ever complained that she was too loud.

Dobbie and barking

Dobbie didn't bark at all for the first month or so. I believe he thought he was on "probation" or "approval" so he was leery of everything. Now, he knows he's the Number 2 person in the household (just him and me unless Wally/dog is visiting) and he believes in protecting the household. He will bark (and it is a loud bark for a small dog) when he hears someone near my front door. It's actually funny to see because he will run to the door, bark once or twice, turn around and come back and stand by me. It's as if he's warned them that he's there and GO AWAY! When he's on the balcony, he will stand and watch people and cars go by, but it's usually quietly, just observing. He's especially funny to watch when he stands at the head of my bed, paws on the headboard, and nose thru the venetian blinds. Just people watching...
