Do Dogs Like Music?
I can't determine if my little Shih-tzu Lhasa, Scooter, actually feels better when I play music or not. I know if I turn on the TV when we're ready to leave, he understands that he's not going along with us, but I just don't know if he gets any comfort from music playing in the background when I'm working.
This really is an interesting topic. I haven't taken a lot of courses on music or anything, but I have read some articles dealing with the relationship of music's effect on humans, but also, on plants. Now I know that plants are definitely a long way from being even related to dogs, but hear me out. When scientists separated plants into two different labs and blasted two different types of music into the areas where plants were being grown, they found that the music being played had a direct influence to the growth and health of the plant. Plant's receiving heavy metal/ hardcore rock music tended to suffer, while classical music seemed to stimulate plant growth. The researchers concluded that somehow plants were able to detect the mood of the music being played through vibrations of sound waves being played in the room, rather than the typical "hearing" senses that animals like humans have developed over millions of years. My overall point for this, is that if plants are able to detect the mood of music through sound waves, then I guarantee you that your dog will be able to as well (obviously because he has hearing). In that case, I would suggest putting on some music that you know has a happy mood/rhythm to it so that your dog feels happy while you're there and while you're out running errands.
Mr. T. Yes! I put the TV on the Disney or Family Channel when we go away- don't want him exposed to violence Plus, when I'm writing I play"Eddie Kaeme and the Sons of Hawaii" so that even if Scooter doesn't like it, he'll pick up my happy vib
I believe they do. My dog tends to be in a better mode while listening to love songs... or maybe he is just a romantic type...hahaha
They did a study on this on shelter dogs and it was found they respond better to classical music more than rock. I play music to my dogs when they go out . Google "through a dog's ear" it's a CD of music just for dogs composed by psychoacoustic expert Joshua Leeds and pianist Lisa Spector in collaboration with veterinary neurologist Susan Wagner.
