Howling Good Time

My dog, Sienna, is a husky mix, and she howls whenever she’s running around the course.   It used to be cute, but now I’m not even sure she’s listening to me! Any suggestions to make her stop?

Wow.  I’m imagining that, and it is kinda cute! Sorry.  I know it can be frustrating!

I would recommend stripping back to one or two obstacles – real ‘howlers’ – and only rewarding her when she’s quiet.  Another idea is teaching her to howl on command, and then teach her the opposite command – silence!  It’s a cute parlor trick, and by putting the behavior on cue, you may be able to control it. Does anyone else have any ideas?
