|Now, from what I've read up on Papillons, they are not "yappy" dogs, generally. But I've also heard they have the tendency to sometimes bark none-stop for no apparent reason, or are very hard to stop after a door-bell has ringed or anything startles them, etcetera.
What are your thoughts on this? Does your papillon do this, or can it not be simply trained from it? Papillons being the number one smartest small breed of dog out there, it makes little sense to me. But I did read that more than once, and not just in books and informational sites, but also from reviews "supposedly" from owners.
This made me rethink my choice of a dog, as when I move into an apartment, I would not be able to part with my baby! And I know insistent barking is a "no no", even at houses, but more so in apartments.
I have settled (happily!), I think, with a different breed now, but as It's still months away from getting it, I have not closed all options. I also am looking in shelters,petfinder, etc, too, so I want it a little open. But anyway, I thought I might just see what YOU guys think!
BOL, I've asked so many questions about so many breeds, I'm sure people are getting tiered of it......
