Howling at night

Recommended Posts

My boy Leon starts howling & barking at midnight all of a sudden. I want to stop him doing that before my neighbours starts complaining about it. He stays calm if I sit next to him and calm him down and pet him for a while, until he goes back to sleep.

Does he need to go the toilet ? If not I would speak to your neighbours and explain, hope they'll be sympathetic as if u had a new born, and give him something that smells of you to comfort him and May be leave a tv or radio on for him

He doesn't want to use the toilet, and he does it everyday.

I take it he is a young dog  -  he certainly looks it   -  which will rule out CCD  -  if he only does this at night but stops when you are there to calm him   - have you thought about a thunder shirt?   Where is he when he starts this behaviour?    Is he outside in a pen,  or inside with you in your bedroom?

I had the same problem with Luna when she was young and eventually gave in and now she sleeps on the floor next to my bed. A small price to pay to let all of us get a good sleep as well as my neighbours.

He’s a beauty! Sounds as tho he wants to be near you, one of mine used to howl at night, I’d go down take him outside, nothing... all he wanted was to be near us, my 2 sleep upstairs by my bed then one will go down, I certainly sleep longer now they’re both with us

I had a howling issue with my pups. 

I actually trained them to howl on command and to stop on command. Now whenever I notice my female starting I can command her to stop.

It doesn't sound like we have the exact issues. Mine sound off at sun rise. 😖 No matter if they are by my side or not. My neighbors are awesome and think it is cool and don't mind it on weekdays. But weekends... Definitely would like to sleep in.

I like that. When Luna wants something she will sit in front of the telly and start the little howls/speaking. My missus is pretty quick to tell me lol. She never barks, unless I get her to by putting my finger over my mouth and saying shhhhh, makes her do a solo bark then gets ready to play

We have this issue now and again. What type of area do you live. We live in a rural area and the local wildlife at dawn upset him. We have deer and rabbits that come to the bottom of the garden. I have a big patio door. I don't close the curtains as I know he would be pulling them down to get out so I'm considering a metal roller shutter. Maybe it's animals waking him.

We have coyotes, rabbits, and big red tails. 

If the pups are in their dog run and a coyote comes up to their fence or is in the yard or a red tail flies over too low, they  instinctively know to come in quietly. Then tell me all about it. 

They have never been aloud to chase the rabbits. So they will just watch them.

We have curtains but they don't go all the way down to the floor. If they pups want to watch the bunnies then they have to lay down to see them.

He stays inside the house but in a different room.

We live in an urban area and in an independent house, he's set free to roam around in the house and climb up and down the stairs, the only problem is at night.

The problem is if I let him to sleep next to me, he doesn't let me sleep at all, he keeps pulling the blanket out, try to jump onto the bed or something like that.

My 2 did the same when they first started sleeping in our bedroom, it doesn’t take long for them to get into a routine, Cai jumps on the end of the bed in the middle of the night even now, Luka blue starts off on the bed for 15-20 mins then goes down to lie in front of the front door.
