Barking

Do chins bark when they are happy? Hailey was just sitting in her cage and she was in the corner barking and looking cuter than ever. I also recently bought her a leash for small animals. (More like a harness) so that she can wonder without getting completely loose in my apartment. Plus she is a pooper. Does anyone else have a harness that they use with their chin? Or is mine just not trained enough to be loose? I need chin help! I love her so much and wanna make sure she is happy.

Most chins bark when they are stressed, rather than happy. Mine will make a high pitched quiet 'hoot' when happy, though.

That is what I thought, but she seems to bark when she is so calm. And usually when she is stressed she sheads a lot! And she was not sheading and she wanted to come out...when I opened the door she just came to me. It was cute.

I think they bark when stressed or bothered. Mine do it when there are loud noises or I wake them up in the daytime.

My little female does that all the time, it usually happens when she has hiccups, and is uncomfortable. As for the harness, lots of people will tell you not to use it. I have one for my Berry, but I never let him on the ground with it. I use it as a safe guard when he's traveling around with me, so I don't lose him. He sits on my shoulder with his harness on. I wouldn't recommend letting your chin on the ground, they aren't like dogs, and if they get rapped around something they could get really hurt.

There is no one TRUE way
