18. Sing to music
Others need a little more encouragement to show off their vocal talents.
This may not be the best trick to teach your dog if you live in an apartment or have neighbours living close by.
Some dogs will conduct their own practice sessions whilst you are out of the house which could drive your neighbours crazy.
Start by experimenting with different songs, tones and instruments to see if any of them inspire your dog to start singing. As you are the leader of the pack, lead by example, and start howling to encourage your dog to join in. Some dogs become more vocal when asking for something such as their food or a walk. As soon as your dog starts to make noise, say the command, and give him a reward.
One of the most famous examples of musical dogs is the New Guinea Singing Dog that is a close relative of the Dingo. This wild dog emits a long melodious howl that is characterised by several high notes. No matter what breed you have, all dogs are descended from wolves, and most will eventually rediscover their howling abilities.
