Some Dogs Have More Trouble Than Others When Learning How To Howl…WHAT Is This Noise?!

Learning to howl can be a challenge for new puppies. Some are cute, and some are…well, a bit more confusing as you’ll see in the video below. I don’t even know how to categorize the sounds that this dog makes! It’s hilarious, but very difficult to describe.

Most dogs learn to howl from older dogs, and are more prone to howling when they hear a high-pitched noise. It’s used as vocal communication and make contact with other dogs and to attract attention. Wolves in the wild use howling to let a lost pack member know where they are, to ward off animals encroaching on their territory, or because of sickness or injury.

Young puppies usually start howling after they have been adopted during the first few nights if they aren’t barking up a storm at being left in a room by themselves. What we learn through our doggies is that howling has no actual fixed meaning – it depends on their situation! It also depends on the breed of your dog. Some are prone to howl on a daily basis, only with humans, or never at all. My little Shihtzu never howls (an occasional bark at a cat, but never a howl) but my Husky will howl at the drop of a hat. It really depends on each individual dog.

Does your dog howl? If they do, they probably don’t sound anything like this dog! I replayed this video over and over – it was just too funny!
