My pup Xayah doesn't howl at all, she just barks like any other pup. Does anyone else have a howl-less pup or care to share when theres eventually did?

Kohdi started before I even got him. The breeder called him the spokesman for the group, haha. He's rarely not talking...seriously! The most vocal husky I've ever had. Then there is Mishka, she's at the other end of the spectrum, she's quiet as a mouse. I've heard her howling several times, but only when she's frustrated. Example, my alarm clock went off, I was outside, I came in and she's talking to my alarm clock and throwing her paw at it.

Past huskies, I've always had one more talkative than the other. All would howl though at things like sirens going by. Mishka doesn't do that either. With past huskies, I usually heard their vocals in the first month or two of having them.

My pup has howled a handful of times, usually when he's just really sad. Like my fiancé has heard him howl when I leave the house. In general he's super quiet, a couple barks when frustrated with our cat for not wanting to play lol

Zhukov will only howl if it is initiated by either myself or Colby, and then only after a while of us howling like lunatics. He will howl if he sees another dog walking past in front of the house. He never barks either, he "hoots". Weird....

My girl is very quiet as well. I have been trying to get her to howl but the only time is when I take too long to put on my shoes to take her to the bathroom with her walks. But even that, it's usually just a quiet quick mouthing where you can hear her teeth click together, a quick bark, whining, or if I am lucky which maybe I have heard her done 3 times is a quick quiet howl that lasts barely a second.

I have three pups here - all 5+ years old and none of them gratuitously howl.

Avalanche - my Alaskan - will "Howl along with Mitch" (don't worry, that's *WAY* before your time!) when I play a vid of another dog howling, otherwise he'll bark when something/one is in the area around the trailer (he's not a bad watchdog, even is he is overly friendly)

Sasha will "speak" when I tell her to but then it's an excited bark because supper normally follows.

Sky rarely (even more rare than the other two) will "squeak" at me.

Now, if I leave, they'll serenade me till I'm out of ear shot - neighbor says they quiet down pretty quickly. Overall, I think that the howling / talking is highly overrated ... many who write here have dogs who are basically quiet.

Misty is 2 years old, theoretically, and we've had her for nearly two months without any genuine howling. She's plenty vocal -- Lots of woo-woo-wooing and barking and grumbling and grunting and "talking", but no wolflike howling. My old terrier mix sounded more like a wolf than she does. We've played YouTube videos for her of other Huskies howling, but she's not interested in them at all. If anything, she just seems annoyed by them.

Hades started howling at around 14 weeks but only at home, last week he suddenly started howling in public when a dog ignored him after playing, now he howls all the time in public or when I am taking to long to do things.

Ami had only howled 3x in 4 years. Each tone was extraordinary, the moist mournful sounds I've ever heard. Mostly, he talks...woo woo arrr arrrarrr

Z'ev...I don't know HOW to describe Z'ev. Not exactly howling, not exactly woo woo...sort of a banshee shriek wail screechy sort of thing. And he is liberal with it also. Usually in response to food or going outside. And accompanied with helicoptering.

My pup is 19 weeks old now, but she didn't make any sounds for the first couple of days that we had her, probably because she was scared and in a new unfamiliar place without her siblings or parents. Once she got comfortable and settled in, she only howled when I left and she had gotten super attached to me really quick, or she was in her crate because she hates it. Now when she gets super excited she'll howl or when she's crated or when I leave because it upsets her, but aside from that she won't howl unless we excite her and provoke it. Also, I see you're in Tampa too! If you ever want to meet up and have a playdate somewhere just message me!

Rorschach is a noisy dog. He barks at passing dogs. He barks and growls at cats. He yips if he wants attention. He snarls like a rabid wolf when playing. He makes all sorts of funny sounds if you are interacting with him and he wants something. He howls if he hears anything even remotely sounding like a howl.
Cop car across town, howl. Fire siren, howl. Other dog from blocks away howls, howl. Power tool with a whine, howl. Storm warning siren, howl.
The odd part is he won't howl if he's out of his kennel/run. He just looks around like he's not sure what to do. But if he's in his kennel, he howls in response. I think he thinks he's just alerting us to whats going on. With us, no howl, without us, howls.
He started howling by 4 months, but we didn't get him till he was 3 months old (rescue).

Misty now seems to be slowly working her way up to howling. She still mostly just talks and woo-woo-woos, but some of those woos are starting to sound more like "WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!" However, she still doesn't seem all that interested in fully embracing The Song Of Her People. We still occasionally play YouTube videos of Huskies howling, and I swear that when we do, Misty would put her paws over her ears if she could. She still seems to be mostly just annoyed by other dogs howling.
