Howling Dream Symbol


Howling – To dream of a howling dog or other animal is a sign of approaching danger. You should take this dream symbol as a warning. The howling animal may be a spirit guide, or it may be the internal guide and instinct for self-preservation that we all have. In addition, it may also itself be a danger coming to threaten you.

Howling is a lonely sound that strikes fear into humans’ hearts. Watch to be sure that you are not having to face adversity alone, because you may fail and be harmed. Take the warning of the howling as a sign to gather trustworthy friends around you to support you in the difficult time to come.

    I had a dream where it looked as if we were getting ready to leave our normal campsite that we always camp at. I was negotiating with my loved ones about taking a dip in the water before we officially headed off. My family agreed and the younger ones all went to get changed and I went with my sister and cousin to get changed in a tent. While getting ready to change, my father and all my uncles were outside patrolling and watching over us. For some reason we started hearing howls, it sounded sad. I looked out not seeing a dog near at all but I did see a brown figure move through the forest that was super far from us. The first thing that came to me was a bear and so i turned to my father who told me fo get all the kids and aunts into the car first. So I helped my cousins and aunts into the car. I was able to get my boyfriend who also came along in the dream. When I turned around, there were two bears coming out but they were walking on their feet like how people normally walk. They didn’t face us at all but the howls didn’t even stop until my father and uncles all got into the car. We were able to get out of there but I don’t know what that’s supposed to mean. The dream shaken me when I awoke.

  2. A wolf looking dog was on a rock (like on a cliff in the clouds) with it’s owner. I howled at it to get its attention and it howled back at me and proceeded to jump off the rock. I was terrified cause I think it died (not sure how high it was or what). The weird thing is that I had seen this dog in a post of FB earlier in the day. The owner had posted that she had to put her dog down and she was extremely sad. Her post made an impact but it is so strange that I dreamed it. Any thoughts?

  3. I had a dream that I was walking at school and there was this husky that walked past me and walk a little further and sat in front of me with its back to me and started howling and the dream just kept repeating with me walking but the dog already laying down howling with its back to me. Someone please explain.

      He is not a good dog…..but wants help. If I were you, I would cross the road, snd keep walking. Dog is not to be trusted.

        I had a very vivid dream that I was watching buildings just start collapsing and me and two older people I’ve never seen were driving trying to get away to go to my kids school to rescue them and see if they were still alive. I was panicking in the dream bc as we were driving past on a bridge next to castle like structure the stones were falling and above me I could see it sliding off toward the car. We almost were crushed when the car turned around and I was abruptly switched to another scene of me at my mom’s with my dogs and I was trying to tell her I have to get my kids I have to save them what if they’re dead?? And buildings were on the news collapsing all over and my mom said the dogs are howling. And I looked down at ten my husky with two diff colored eyes and his ears were back and he was howling like he was sad. I woke up to my alarm and was very alert and I’m worried about this dream bc after that it switched scenes again and for some reason I had my oldest son n dad with me but we was in some house that was set up like a drs but my youngest son wasn’t there and a kid came in with a virus and I raced out with my dad n son still feeling the need to rescue and drive to his school. I was born able to predict things after my dreams but this one’s really hard bc of the detail it’s really hard to figure out and I’d like help to figure out the message please bc it’s something important.

  4. I saw in my dream that my dog was howling and calling me then he started calling me with other dogs and asked them to howl and call me because he did not want me to leave him and when I went to see him he was howling and hugged me with tears in his eyes … What does it mean please tell me

    In my dream I heard a howling dog and when I sought out the howling literally found a dog that looked like a sheep’s body with a dog head, I went into the house and as I was telling my late stepfather about it I pushed the door shut and when I looked out the door window the dog was viciously growling and changing into different breeds of dog while attacking the door trying to get into the house. first, it changed to a Rottweiler then hound, then a blood red poodle so vicious and its attack seemed to be directed at me, but it couldn’t get at me through the door. very frightening dream.

  6. Howling wolf on

    What does it mean if I’m the howling wolf in my dream and calling my pack? Am I dangerous or am I gonna cause troubles?

  7. I recently was jolted out of a dream by the sound of a howling dog. However, when I awoke, both of our dogs were still asleep. I had dreamed this. What’s even weirder is that my boyfriend, who was next be me had been awakened by howling in his dream moments before I awoke. He saw me awaken and could verify that there was no howling in conscious life just before I awoke.

  8. It was my own dog howling. My dog is a beagle and she was howling bevause she found my best friend during a fire.

  9. Thank you, only it seem more like a howl with the dog or wolf with his head down telling me to get up now, and I do. Please what does this mean? His has happen 2 other time already.
    I am a nature lover and love animals it is telling me something but not sure yet.
