why does my dog howl at me

I have two sister black labs same litter. One is built like a gundog (her father) and the other is just like her mother skinny and all legs. So my one which is the stocky one of the two has a deep bark. The other one barks but also howls sometimes. When I get home they go a bit mad when you open the door but I simply command them to go into their baskets and then give them a small treat and a pat on the head. They calm down and just return to normal. Worst thing they do is alarm barking. I'm upstairs playing my league of legends/dayz then all I can hear is BARK BARK HOWL BARK BARK BARK HOWL. I go downstairs find theres no one at the door our out the back. Tell them to shaddap! the howling dog (holly) wags her tail and trots off somewhere and my dog (melly) whines.


She doesnt like not barking! I sit there saying ok stop barking and i hear he grumble for a few seconds. cracks me up.
YouБve probably been here before: youБre leading your dog around the neighborhood on a typical pack walk when suddenly thereБs a siren way off in the distance. You barely notice it, but your dogБs ears immediately perk up. As it gets closer and closer (and louder and louder), she becomes more and more agitated or excited. Finally, it rounds the corner, headed your way, and as it nears you and passes by, your pooch lets loose with a glorious howl, head thrown back like she was a wolf out in the desert.


WhatБs going on here? Why do dogs howl? There are a number of reasons. Some that are no big deal, and others that should be addressed. Ancestry Think your dog sounds like a howling wolf? ThatБs probably because dogs are distantly related to wolves, and the urge to howl is still embedded in their genetic code. Sometimes they donБt even know why theyБre doing it, just that itБs what theyБre supposed to be doing. Howling is totally normal and natural as long as itБs not chronic, pervasive, or invasive. Communication In the wild, wolves howl to tell a lost member of their pack where they are or to ward off another animal thatБs encroaching on their territory.


For domesticated dogs, this may translate to howling at sirens (БHey, IБm over here! Б), howling when a strange dog comes near (БToo close, buddy! Б), or both. Howling like the above two examples should be expected and isnБt anything to worry about as long as it isnБt accompanied by aggression toward other dogs or people. Most dog owners even tend to find it pretty cute. However, there are situations where howling is a symptom of something deeper that needs to be fixed. Sickness and injury One of the ways that many dogs express the fact that they are hurt or sick is by howling or vocalizing in other ways.


If you notice that your dog is making strange sounds or БtalkingБ more than normal, get them to the vet for a check-up. Separation anxiety Remember how wolves howl to find each other in the wild? Well, if your dog is suffering from separation anxiety, itБs possible that heБll start doing this every time you leave Б not fun for you, the dog, or your neighbors. How do you know that the howling is being caused by? Because itБs usually accompanied by another symptom, such as destroying things, pacing around, or eliminating inside the house. Howling of this kind will take time and consistent effort to overcome. Is your dog a howler? Tell us about it in the comments!
