I can get Cody to howl with me when I try to sound like a dog howling. Isa on the other hand looks at us like we're idiots, lol.

Re: do your dogs howl??

Morgan loves a good howl, she's big on mumbling, mooing and other vocal stylings. Neighbors probably think I'm nuts that I howl with my dog.

Luther used to look at us like 'shuddup, you idiots' but Otto is quite intrigued, he always comes in and tilts his head. He finally figured out how to make that noise come out, my baby getting all big, he has a big voice.

Re: do your dogs howl??

We live in the country where coyotes are very prevalent. I have 8 german shepherds at home. Nearly every night the coyotes begin their "yip yip'' howling . There are two coyote packs on either side of our property which is many acres and borders a year round creek.

It is so...errie when all my dogs begin to howl with them. When the young puppies , even as young as 4-5 weeks howl outside with the pack it is very cool. I have lived in Northern Minnesota and it always reminds me of the wolves howling "up north"

Each dog has his own unique "voice" and the mixture is very interesting. I am glad they howl as it lets the coyotes know that this is our turf and to stay away. We have rarely seen a coyote - and it is usually a solo scout during calving season.

We have never lost a cat, kitten, or dog or pup to a coyote.

One day I'd like to record them howling-just have to have something handy to record at all times.

One time my folks called from Ely, Minnesota when my pack was howling and I held the phone out for them to hear and they said it sounded just like the wolves across the lake.

Here's a picture of a 16 day "Little Howler" of mine - he is really getting into it

We seem to be split along gender lines here. All the boys (both my two personal dogs and the two male fosters) howl and none of the girls do.

Rafe was VERY interested in that video!

The only time Yukon howls is while he is sleeping. Scares the crap out of me when he does that in the middle of the night.

My last Shepherd had a lovely howl. The paper shredder really got him going.

We have lots of of moaning, groaning, barking and mumbling. But, no howling.

I loved the video Camerafodder!
