2. Howling at Sirens

Some dogs don’t do it, but a vast majority do. Howling at sirens or someone singing can be a little annoying, and some owners think their dogs are downright cute when they do it, but why are they howling? The consensus is that dogs hear sirens, other dogs, or singing and it hits the right frequencies in their ears that signals to them that there is something being communicated to them. Because of this, they join in. If you don’t want your dog to howl at every passing fire truck, try firmly telling them no or training them to quiet down by using positive reinforcement when they listen to a command like “shush!”.
