Someone just recently told me it can be common for dogs to howl when babies cry!
Although I'd never thought about it before it makes sense. I understand the reasons dogs howl in response to certain pitched noises. Does anyone have a dog that howls when their baby cries? What does the baby think of it?
If you have a dog that is a known howler, I would half expect him/her to do so when baby cries on occasion. My sister has a beagle who howled when baby cried for a few weeks, then he got over it, we assumed he got used to the noise?
My parents dog never howled with the babies, but they werent howlers to begin with...
I have a Siberian Husky, and she never howled. Mind you, she doesn't even howl when she hears sirens... I don't think I've ever heard her howl. But she is a talker and she's not made any noise when my baby cried. And she was much younger then too, not even a year old.
I would say unless your dog is known to howl, you shouldn't have too many worries
