English Idiom — Bark is worse than their bite

Bark is worse than their bite

Someone who’s bark is worse than their bite may well get angry and shout, but doesn’t take action or they are not as unpleasant as they seem, and their actions are not as bad as their threats.

Example: I wouldn’t be scared of her if I were you. Her bark’s a lot worse than her bite.
