Some researchers who study wolves speculate that howling strengthens social bonds between packmates. Ethologist Fred H. Harrington said, “The pack that howls together, stays together.” At Heal to Howl, we recognize that dogs are very different from wolves, and to us, a “pack” is a family. Our dogs are our family members, and to deepen our bonds with them, we must not be their “pack leaders,” but instead, be their teachers, their advocates and their guardians. In healing the human-dog relationship, we must strive to not only heal our dogs but ourselves. Once we begin to heal, we can then begin to howl. To us, "howling together" is a metaphor for adventuring together. Adventures can be hiking or camping with our dogs, or they can consist of things like learning a new skill or simply doing something fun. At Heal to Howl, we believe families that adventure together, stay together, and we're here to help families do just that.
