Today, I found out that my dog likes to howl when he hears sirens. I live next to the fire station. FML

That's going to be ruff...

So obviously the easiest thing to do is to train the firemen to not sound their alarm! Definitely don't put your dog through any training!

Ouch.. Might want to invest in some ear plugs.

And hand some out to the neighbours

Or just train the dog...

Yes. Earplugs. To cover the sound of the dog howling while sirens are wailing. Cuz that dog is going to wake everybody up...

I'd think living next to a fire station is bad alone…

OR buy a shock collar.

I think you tried a little too hard on that one.

^Every thread mentioning a dog

A lot of dogs bark or howl when they hear loud noises..

Hopefully there isn't a lot of fires going around :/

Fires happen more often than you'd think. Also firemen are usually first responders, even if there is no fire, as a back up for EMS. So even with no fires there's still sirens.

Some of them are actually paramedics and firefighters, they respond to many of our calls. We need them for a lot of things, they cut the tops of cars off to get car crash victims out when necessary, and many vital jobs for paramedics and EMTs. I hope OP and their dog manage to come up with a good solution for both of them.

We go to a lot of calls other than fires actually. MVA's (Motor Vehicle Accidents), O2 sensors, Ice Water Rescue, saving cats from places (literally I have gone twice for that) and many other things. My department gets 9x more MVA's than fires

Rescue dog in training.

Maybe you can train your dog not to bark when they hear the fire alarm?

But what if there is a fire?

17 - how does becoming alert to random fire trucks going to other peoples fires help op at all? ...

17- What was your thought process while typing?

That comment truely made me laugh.

At least it's not a new born baby. But really what did you expect when your house is next to a fire station

Sleep maybe

Unfortunately, in an emergency the sirens will sound. Your dog will too.

Well on the bright side if your house is on fire it won't take them long to get there

well you'd have to hear the sirens anyway, adding on your dogs howl while thats going can't be that much worse if you'd have to hear the sirens to begin with
