Most activity seems to be nocturnal. Daily movements average about 10 to 20 km. On the average, individuals are active for 15.25 hours and at rest for 8.75 hours each day. The dingo is basically solitary, but individuals in a given area form a loose, amicable association and sometimes come together. Fighting may develop among members of different groups. Although not particularly vocal, the dingo has a variety of sounds. Howls, probably meant to locate others from its group and repel intruders, are frequently heard during the annual breeding season. Although regularly captured and tamed by natives and other people of Australia, the dingo has never been successfully domesticated.
