I have a gps about a year old. I got her at the pound. The pound thought she might be crossed with a hound because she has more of a howl than a bark. My problem is that she howls when left alone. Even if she can see me. How should a start to train her to lose that habit? I have had her for about a week. She has had no other training. I'm working on leash and house training. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Denise

I had a female GSP that would howl when I asked her too. They make a range of noises and each dog has a different 'voice' just we do. Having said that many people use a bark collar to stop unwanted barking. It is voice activated and gives a low voltage electric shock providing negative feedback to the unwanted behavior. It does not harm the dog.
