    Default Silly question I thought I'd ask...

    So most of you that know me on here know that we've had Tank since he was a pup... Tank is turning the tender age of 4 this November! So in all the 4 years we've had him, I have come to notice he is the only dog in our neighborhood that DOESN'T howl/bark at sirens like the rest around us do. I was curious if it's just him or do any of your bully's do it?

    That's actually an interesting question. Finn will howl when I'm cooking and the smoke detector goes off, and only on rare occasions will he howl when he hears sirens. Tate will not howl at all. I've actually tried to make them howl by howling myself...didn't work though.

    Chesty doesn't howl and he very rarely barks he only barks when someone walks past the bay window he is lounging on in my bedroom. and sometimes when he wants to play with his brother Clyde but that's only if Clyde is sleeping

    Rocco has never howled in the two months I've had him and he really only barks at other animals or if he's playing aggressively. I took him to our firefighter competition in August and there was plenty of siren noise there he didn't seem too bothered by it though. But he was getting lots of attention from everyone there

    None of my guys bark or howl at sirens. Not even Ace or Orion did. I've always wondered if certain breeds are just more prone to howling at the higher pitched sirens.

    Aubie loves to bark but she won't howl. She doesn't usually bark at sirens or anything.

    My two guys never howl, and very rarely bark. Dozer basically never barks, and Blossom will bark if she hears someone outside, but she does whine, like a baby when she has to go potty, or if I'm on the phone and ignore her. She's such a suck. My mom always thinks I have a baby in the house, she sounds so pathetic. Lol

    Sounds like Molly!

    Jesse like to sing along to the radio when it's on, it's so low you almost can't hear it, but it's funny as heck!

    Barley only barks at the doorbell. The only other time he makes any noise is when he is snoring.

    We've had ollie since May, a few weeks back we were watching Rookie Blue the police show, out of nowhere he howled when the sirens came on, a long long howl, my husband and I just looked at each other like wth. Yesterday watching a show with sirens and again out of nowhere he let out this huge howl! So yep I guess he does!! He also barks at loud noises on the tv as well, and if he hears car door, the helicopters(we live on MCB so that is almost constant!)
