Last night Kai freaked me out howling,he stopped once i told him to.Anyone know why he'd do this?
My new boys decided about 10min ago to have a howling session! Something i am NOT used to!
Maybe there is a bitch in season near by... they can smell the scent for quite some distance
im more in shock when maya barks she howls all the time, for food, attention, when she is grumpy etc lol
Cobi only howls when he is left on him own while mayas in season or when we all make a howling session lol :smilewinkgrin:
Doesn't it sound freaky,well it does at 1.30 am. lol
Well my mia has just finished her season so he's a bit late lol.
I can imagin what your dogs must sound like when they all have a sing along. pmsl.Singing:
my huskies howl particulary Shadow & Inca, Inca does it on command lol
they rarely bark so they enjoy a good howl
some dogs howl when theyre lonely is a way of contacting other dogs, my breed just enjoy it!
Two of our poms love to howl, but they only do it on command so it's not all the time thankfully, as pom howls are quite screachy and can go through you at times lol.
I would love to hear a pack of huskies howling I would say it is a eary as listening to wolves.
I would have thought a lone dog would be howling for a number of things, loneliness, a bitch in season, or just because they can. Hope he doens;t start doing it to often especially when it is the early hours of the morning, I know I wouldn't be to impressed LOL.
Fantastic pics noushka....which christmas carol was your dog singing? lol
I have never heard my dogs howl. When I was a teenager I had my own dog and she wandered and killed a chicken so had to be tied up for a while so she howled. My mother told me that if she ever heard her howl again she would have her put down as it was a sign that she was going mad and she might attack us It is so scarey how these old wives tales take root. I wonder what the vet would have said if he had been asked to put her down. I was terrified, that dog was my life, I couldnt believe I might lose her but thank goodness she never howled again.
Hi pommum,kai isn't on his own hun,i have mia as well.I was just thankful i was still awake.And i won't be impressed if he starts making a habbit of it,i need my beauty sleep. lol
pmsl she was just singing the chorus to 'o come all ye faithful'!:laugh:
hahaha pmsl, i bet she's already booked for this christmas then.
you have a poodle that howls? LOL! Oh dear poor janice. Hope Kai isn't causing you too much trouble.
My boys don't howl, thank god! They bark but they dont howl - if they did i think i'd need really big headphones to cover my eears lol
Maybe Kai has smelt something nearby your home he's not used to?
Ooo Janice youre giving my ideas now!:idea: i might start hiring her out!
mine howl if they are left alone (they dont together now as far as i know)
And howl and do a woo, wooo sound if excited its cute then, think i'd need new pj's if they did at during the night!
Oscar has only ever howled when he was waking up after his amputation. I think it was pain related as he carried on until he had more morphine.
Alfie has howled a few times in his sleep, when hes having a dream. Its a very haunting sound.
A dog's howl is a call to his pack, nothing sinister and nothing to do with mental illness Just an extension of his bark. A howl travels further in the wild too and the sound waves bounce off trees etc better and give the dogs a better 'map' to find their way back to the pack. How the dogs know this though is another matter entirely!
Some dogs will howl to sounds that they associate with the 'pack' forming. I remember a TV article years ago that showed a family dog howling to the Eastenders theme tune (don't we all?!?!) - the expert explained that the dog associates this distinctive music with all of the pack/family coming together and gathering as a group. Now whenever that dog hears that music, that's his cue to call the pack together. Very cute actually
When I was a kid, I used to have clarinet lessons at home and the dog used to howl in the next room. Very embarrassing, ok, I'm no Akerbilk, but come on!!
Erm.....Something else i forgot to tell you :blushing: Howling is a breed trate for the cresties i am afriad!
Yes apart from our italion spinone and the JRT...ALL of the others howl..Just takes one of them to start and that is it there all at it..As soon as you ask them to be quiet they do..But it amazes me how one just goes off for no reason and the others all join in...
All other cresties owners we know say the same..cresties are VERY well known for the howling
Only Silas howls luckily but he howls really loudly must be the malamute and gsd in him. The others have tried occassionally but it doesn't really work.
my border terrier x does this,
but its called singing in their breed for some strange reason
