While teaching your dog how to howl, make sure it’s an enjoyable activity for both of you. Start by training in a safe place supervised by an experienced trainer. When mastering the howl, gradually increase the duration and intensity.
Why can’t I get my dog to howl?
There are a number of reasons that may explain your dog’s lack of howling, and understanding the cause is the first step in finding a solution. If your dog isn’t howling, here are some things to consider:1. Is your dog lonely? This can make it difficult for a dog to cope with separation from its pack. If your dog wishes to be alone, confining it to a room or other secluded area may help.2. Are there other dogs in the area that your dog likes? If so, your dog may seek them out in an effort to be around other dogs that seem like friends.3. Is there something wrong with your howl? Many dogs learn how to howl as part of their training process; if you’re not familiar with howls, you may be mistaken for one yourself!4. Are you trying too hard? While some people enjoy the challenge of trying to elicit a howl from their dog, others find such efforts boorish or irritating. Try some other techniques first before resorting to artificial stimulation techniques.
