Howling to music

When I practice my clarinet , Benji howls ( like a wolf) .. for 5 or ten minutes, then settles down. Is he in pain and anguish over the music? Should I go upstairs and shut the door as far away as possible? Or might he be trying to sing along? Any insights out there? Benji is 7 months old..

I don't think he's in pain, unless your playing is really bad. lol. Sounds like he's just responding to a sound which may be new to him. I think you should keep it up and he will get used to it or maybe sing along. Sounds cute to me. Enjoy the music.

Chester does the same thing. He's started singing since 4 months. I play the piano, and Chester loves it. He comes by the piano every time and sit and howls. I certainly don't think he is in pain, I believe he loves the sound and will want to join in. We both enjoy it a lot together. I have a thread where he sings.

Henry likes to howl along with the fire-siren that goes off in our town. He stops during our walk, howls, and then we keep going. I have to try to get video of it, I love it so much!
