From Alaskan Malamutes to Bloodhounds, let’s meet some dogs who howl here. Dog howling is five breeds of dogs half-pleasing, half-eerie sound our dogs make from deep in their throats.
I’m the headliner for this group. Although I’m usually not described as a barky breed, I am among dogs who howl. Sometimes, we howl to communicate, expressing our emotions. Now and then we enjoy howling together.
Shetland Sheepdog Shetland Sheepdogs are dogs who howl. I’m frequently listed on vocal breed lists, but here I’ve been promoted to the howling category, too. We were bred in the Shetland Islands, where people needed small, rugged dogs to herd livestock, protect gardens from livestock and work with humans. Sometimes, my ancestors stayed with the sheep on remote sections of the island, barking away big birds to protect the lambs. Bloodhound Bloodhounds are known for their howling. I’m guessing you recognize me by my facial folds and saggy skin, but my howling is noteworthy, too. Gentry used my forefathers to catch poachers, and law enforcement used us for tracking.
