Dog Behavior Episode 4 – Why Do Dogs Howl?

Want to know the secret to getting your dog to stop howling excessively? Keep reading to discover my top 3 tips to achieve this by understanding your dog’s behavior.

There are several reasons why your dog howls. Let’s find out what they are and what you need to know to fix the problem. Howling is usually a sign of loneliness, boredom, separation anxiety, howling in response to other dogs, howling to triggers such as sirens, or simply making their presence known to other dogs in the area. Understanding your dog’s behavior can be a difficult task. So in this segment I hope to shed some light on why dogs howl.

So why do dogs howl?

It is an instinctive behavior for dogs to howl, although some dogs have stronger or weaker drives and instincts than others. Dogs, like people, are simply different from each other. Some dogs howl on the trigger like sirens, while others don’t. Some dogs may feel the need to communicate with the source of the sirens, responding to the ancient wolf call, believing it to actually be a pack of dogs communicating from afar.

If your dog howls excessively, it may mean that he is bored out of his wits and needs play, love and attention. The dog should not be deprived of human touch or a way to entertain himself. If your dog is trying to get your attention, like you, it means that something is missing in his environment, be it food, water, toys or companionship.

Everyone enjoys a wolf howl now and then, but if your dog is howling excessively, there is something you can do. Just apply my top three tips.

  • Tip number one

Spend more time with your dog, even if it’s just sitting and watching TV. Dogs love company and communication with their owners. Provide your dog with toys and chews to occupy his time while enjoying your company. Pay attention to your dog more often. Your dog will be too busy with you and will howl less often as a result.

  • Tip number 2

Exercise your dog. Take him for a walk to expand his horizons and stimulate his mind. The exercise and mental stimulation will ensure a restful evening and night for both of you.

  • Tip number 3

Enrich your dog’s life with play. Don’t just give him toys and walk away. Get involved in his life and do things that your dog likes to do too.

My advice is for healthy dogs that exhibit their natural instinct to howl like wolves. If your dog has a behavioral disorder, then your dog needs more than advice on normal dog behavior. Your dog needs professional help. Separation anxiety is an example. This type of howling is usually accompanied by at least one other symptom of separation anxiety, such as pacing, destruction, elimination, depression, or other signs of distress.

Now let’s summarize.

After thousands and thousands of years, dogs still can’t shake the wild instincts ingrained in them. The key to raising a well-adjusted dog is finding a balance between the wolf and the pet in your dog. Understand your dog’s right to behave like a real dog and make sure his wild side is properly fulfilled by providing an alternative outlet to accommodate his canine instincts and instinctual behavior.
