Wow, the original post is really old! But interesting.

When our black lab was young (he's been gone for 4 years now), he did that a couple of times.
He was sleeping in his bed, and woke us up with this eerie, bone-chilling howl. We just didn't know what to make of it.
He did it a couple of times, and never did it again. Very memorable though.

I wake him up and he seems just fine. I think I've noticed that these episodes tend to happen close together and then not happen for months. It's just one of the worst, most sad, and terrifying sounds I've ever heard. And I've googled and googled until tonight I finally saw this Forum. I don't necessarily think my dog's howls are related to the death of someone though. I just wish I could know what he is feeling/thinking/imagining....
If you don't know, you shouldn't have a pet.


Your pet is dreaming. Stop waking him up. How would you like it if someone woke you every time you dreamed?


/that's all.

It's all a learning experience, so ease up.
I've had dogs since I was 15, and I'm still learning about them all the time.

My Chihuahua would do this while she was sleeping. It sounded like she was having a night terror, like kids get, then it progressed to having seizures while howling. She had a bad heart murmur also.


Is your dog healthy? Sounds like he was just having a dream.
