I'm not sure what's going on here and I think you need to get a behaviourist in to see what's happening. You need to try to understand why you dog's howling, not try to stop it. Usually this type of behaviour occurs when the dog is trying to impress the owner and is getting some sort of reward for doing it, even if it is punishment. For example: If he's had no interaction from you all day, then being looked at, sprayed and shouted at is better than getting ignored.
