Why does a dog howl?

Updated: Dec 22, 2023

Howling is a form of communication used by dogs. They may howl to let others know that they have arrived, to make a contact with other dogs, and to attract attention.

Superstition: Dog howling means death is near.

No, howling is not a sign of death. Howling is a way of communication. Especially in the winter season, male dogs howl for the heated need and for mating.
