We should train our dogs to be on their own and get used to their ways of living while they are still young instead of when they are older. As owners, we should provide some toys for the dogs to play with when we are together with them. Leaving the radio or television turned on might also provide relaxing background noise and let the dogs less worried.
Howling（嚎叫）is a form of communication. Dogs do it to tell one another where they are. Some dogs howl when they are lonely, Some even howl to music and do this because it is fun.
