Why Do Dogs Howl?

If you want to know why do dogs howl you have to know that they do this to communicate and transmit signals. Dog howling may signal that your dog is bored or alone.

Dog Howl Signals

Just like dog barking, the howling is a way to communicate with other dogs. Undomesticated dogs, coyotes and wolves transmit signals in this manner. Domestic dogs haven’t lost this instinct. Dogs tend to howl if kept outside. If you are bothered by the howl, you may solve the problem by taking the dog inside the house.

Howling When Alone

If your leave your dog alone for a longer period of time he will might start howling. You might not be affected by this—not being at home but your neighbors might, so try taking your dog to a day care or have someone dog-sit for you.

Imitative Dog Howl

Dogs might howl when they hear sirens, high pitched sounds or even music. They tend to imitate these sounds, believing they are other dog howls and trying to respond.
