chris: How do i get my Alaskan Malamute to howl more often?
My dog, Meeka, is an Alaskan Malamute and i love it when she howls, but sadly she howls like once or twice every winter, and i want to know if there is a noise i can make that can make her howl or is there anything i can do to make her howl (without hurting her of course lol)

Meeka must be an indoor dog.
Put her outside and listen to her howl at the other dogs and sounds.

My ex was a sprint musher, and, I have owned a malamute before.
Congratulations – you are the first person I have ever heard of who wanted theirs to howl more!
Before you ask how to make it howl……… go talk to your neighbors. They probably have heard her enough – since Malamutes usually howl the most when alone – when you are not there to hear it. Tie her up outside and go for a walk – you should be able to hear her for about a half mile.

I have a alaskan malmute and he's 6mos old. And mine howls alot mainly when we go outside and close the door. But I can get him to howl with me. I howl at him and he will in turn howl back at me and when I stop and say speak to me he will then continue to howl at me more.

I trained my Shiba Inu to howl on command by waiting for her to howl when certain music was played. I would say "Suki, sing!" and praise her. She caught on well, so maybe try with different songs, to see if that'll get her to howl.

I used to howl for my beagle. Seriously. She would howl at distant sirens, but I could also get her to howl by howling at, and then with her.
I loved that dog.

Some AM's will howl in response to you trying to howl (even if it's badly). I've known some that have sounded like they are having conversations with people. Take her outside and see if you can inspire her wild side!
