Do Papillons bark....?   
Papillons are good watch dogs. They love
to let you know when some one comes
to the door, or they see a bird, cat,
squirrel ....in the yard.
Yes, most of them bark;
but Papillons are highly intelligent and
you can easily train them not to bark.

"wash and wear" breed and requires
minimal grooming. Papillons have
a fine-haired, single length coat.
The coat is shed twice a year. As
puppies, Papillons have short length
fur and as adults, the coat is longer
and silky.
