Why do dogs howl?

Some owners complain that dogs howl at night. Others themselves have never heard a howling pet, but disgruntled neighbors convince the opposite. Still others, returning from work, do not have time to open the door – as plaintive howls are already heard on the other side. Examples can go on and on. But there is only one problem – howl.
