Does anyone’s Boston Howl in the Middle of the Night while Sleeping?


    Here is a question from Laura RamBran : “Does anyone’s Boston howl in the middle of the night while they are sleeping”

    “My rookie has done it maybe 5 times total in the 3 years that we have had him. But in the last week he has probably done it 5 times!”

    “His eyes are closed when he does it, but he lifts his head and then when I say ‘it’s ok’ or go to snuggle him he opens his eyes and looks shocked and then his ears go back. It’s so sad!”

    Does anyone have any experiences, suggestions or recommendations to share? Join the discussion!

    My Boston is15 and blind. Howls at night once in a while. Whats going on?


    Yes! My Boston howls in his sleep every so often, especially if he’s really tired.

    My Toby does it every night. He mostly does it when he sleeps next to me.

    Yes, Baxter does this several times a day when he sleeps. I know when he begins to dream because his toes spread and twitch. Then his legs jerk like he’s running and his muzzle and eyes twitch. He starts out yipping a few times and then let’s a muffled howl. I love it but wish I knew what he was dreaming. It would be even more interesting because he is blind.

    Yeah my Buster does this occasionally and startles the snot right out of me in the middle of the night.… I gently wake him up and then he goes right back to sleep…Silly baby.
