Why Do Dogs Howl?


INTRO—–
HI GUYS I’M CATIE WAYNE AND THIS IS ANIMALIST NEWS.
HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED THAT YOUR PET DOG HOWLS AT SIRENS?
DOGS ARE SOCIAL ANIMALS WITH MANNERISMS THAT CAN BE TRACED BACK TO THEIR WOLF ANCESTORS.
WHILE BARKING MAY SEEM LOUD TO US, HOWLING IS ACTUALLY USED FOR LONG DISTANCE COMMUNICATION.
BY HOWLING BACK AND FORTH , WOLVES ATTRACT ATTENTION, TALK TO THEIR GROUP, AND FIND THEIR
WAY HOME. SINCE THEY GENERALLY LIVE IN PACKS, THEY ALSO
HOWL TOGETHER TO TELL OTHERS THAT A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF WOLVES ARE LIVING IN A PARTICULAR
AREA. IT’S NOT SURPRISING THAT DOMESTICATED DOGS
USE A SIMILAR SYSTEM WHILE BARKING AND HOWLING AS WELL.
BUT WHAT IS INTERESTING IS THAT DESPITE THE FACT THAT DOG’S HAVE A WIDER RANGE OF HEARING
THAN HUMANS, THEY CONFUSE SIRENS FOR OTHER DOGS HOWLING.
LIKE HOWLS, SIRENS CONTAIN HIGHER PITCHED SOUNDS THAT HUMANS CAN’T HEAR.
AND JUST LIKE PEOPLE, DOGS HEARING DECREASES OVER TIME MEANING THAT THE OLDER THEY GET,
THE MORE THEY MAY HOWL AT SIRENS AND WHISTLES. WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT, IT’S KINDA SAD.
HERE THIS POOR DOG IS JUST TRYING TO MAKE A FRIEND BY HOWLING BACK WHEN REALLY IT’S
TALKING TO AN INANIMATE OBJECT. WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR DOG IS SAYING WHEN
IT HOWLS? LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS BELOW.

    Hi, I agree with your statement. I also think the same way, that dogs howl for social communication, to determine if there's other dogs in the area or community. Sadly in our province, especially in rural areas, dogs howling at night made superstitious people really scared. They strongly believe that when dogs howls, it means that the're calling the devil. What's worst is people hurt their own pets when that happens even kills it especially the stray ones. Horrible isn't it? I'm annoyed by it too, it gives u an insight how ignorant people reacts. Indeed, little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

    Fun fact. Domesticated dogs develop barking as a method of communication with humans. Wild dogs and wolves are capable of barking, but don't because there is no need for it.
