2. To Get Attention

Dogs are smart, social animals, and they can get bored or lonely easily. Some dogs use howling to get the attention of their owners or other dogs. Many dogs just use barking to achieve the same goals, but the unusual noise associated with howling can sometimes be more effective. They may also just howl because it's fun to make noise when there isn't much else to do.
