The dog is a social animal and communicates continuously with its own kind, with the members of its own pack and with the man. The howl is one of his ways of communication that he kept in common with his closest relative, the wolf.

The dog essentially uses two behavioral codes. The posture of the body, including facial expressions, and vocalizations, ie the yelp, the growl, the bark and the howling. In nature, the howling is mainly used to signal its presence and to gather a pack. The wolves use it, in particular when the winter season arrives, when they call the other individuals of the pack to hunt the big preys and better to inspect the hunting area.

Some dogs, for example the Siberian huskies and the Alaskan malamutes, only vocalize through the howl as their genetic link with the wolf progenitors is still strong.

Brother where are you? In all the other dog breeds that also bark, however, the howling has not lost its ancient meaning of transmitting its presence on the territory to the like. It is more like a search for distance contact between the members of the pack. It often happens that dogs that are left alone in houses or gardens howl more. In situations of isolation, in fact, these animals manifest with the howl the natural desire to communicate with their own kind and the man, to whom the status of leader of the pack is sometimes recognized.

What is wolf-howling

It is the most used monitoring method for estimating wolf populations.
Wolves tend to respond with the howl to the call of their fellows, especially at certain times of the year. It is a way to signal one's position on the territory to the pack and is part of their natural sociability.
Through the recorded howls, the wolves are stimulated to a natural response, thus giving the researchers the possibility to confirm the presence and the number of these animals on the examined area.

Howl at the sirens. This is often the case for dogs that respond with a howl to a siren that listens in the distance. Some sirens in fact can have emission frequencies similar to the howling, and dogs that are particularly sensitive and desirous of social contact can respond with a similar vocalization, just as wolves do to gather and consolidate the pack of a large territory. Sometimes responding to different sound stimuli such as sirens, bells, cell phone ringtones, however, may have a meaning to be found in the learning that the puppies have had in the first months of life by the parent who, to these stimuli, uses barking or repeating with the howl.
