Why some dogs react the way they do to certain songs and sounds would probably make for an interesting scientific study.
Until then, we have YouTube, where a mounting number of videos, it has been noted, show dogs howling along with — or in objection to — the theme from “Law & Order.”
It’s not the first time multiple dog owners have noticed certain songs seem to cause their pets to vocalize, and captured the result on video. Remember all those videos of dogs singing along with Gwen Stefani’s “Sweet Escape?”
Just as only some dogs howl at sirens, some howl at Gwen Stefani and, for reasons just as mysterious, at the Law & Order theme. Whether they are expressing discomfort or joining the chorus, we don’t really know.
In any event, for an impressive array of dogs howling at “Law & Order,” check out the compilation video above, or visit nastynets.com.

Stefani’s 2007 single, “appears to be the favorite song of dogs across the world,” she says “From Huskies to Dachshunds, something about the ‘woooo wooooos’ in the tune cut to to the core of pooches, leading them to tilt their heads in wonder and sing along with Gwen and Akon.”
She presents as evidence not two, or even five, but 11 Youtube videos of dogs singing along with the song and reports that — wouldn’t you just know it — that’s only the tip of the iceberg.
You can see the entire compilation at Urlesque.com.
Some of the dogs seem to have the tune down better than others, and I got woo-wooed out by around number six. But, no doubt, you would like to see at least one more.
