No, French bulldogs do not bark a lot. Like other breeds, they bark when they want to alert their owner to something that’s happening.
In fact, French Bulldogs can’t bark for long periods. Their short airways mean they get tired easily, and barking makes it much more difficult to take in enough air.
While they’re not yappy like other small dogs, French bulldogs do make a range of other cute noises such as snuffling, and ‘talking back’ with different growls to let you know what they’re thinking.
