A study by the University of Glasgow has discovered that dogs prefer soft rock and reggae over other categories of music, conclusively testifying gentlemen best friend has the flavor of an embarrassing uncle hectoring the DJ at a wedding.

At a rehoming core in the Scottish city of Dumbarton investigates played puppies various categories of music, during which heart rate monitoring and behavioural see was indicated that stress ranks discontinued while listening to the unlikely genre bedfellows. “Theres” unconfirmed reports that the dogs perfectly lost their attentions when researchers cranked a mashup of Beenie Man vs Steely Dan. According to a schnauzer who was at the incident: It shouldnt have worked, but it only did.

Despite evidence that dogs dont just like reggae but in fact love it, the mutts too answered well to Motown, classical and pop tracks. For Professor Neil Evans, the mixed reaction suggests that like humans, our canine acquaintances have their own individual music predilections. His conclusion will make sense to anyone who has ever met a hound: its hard to suppose a St Bernard listening to anything other than Bing Crosby, or a bug-eyed chihuahua who wasnt invariably suffering psychotic flashbacks to a soundtrack of hard German techno.

Following the findings and conclusions, the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has equipped its kennels with sound systems, and compiling canine-appropriate playlists.

From the Doggystyle album. This is surely “the worlds largest” heavily dog-referencing creator, subscribing creator, carol and album set in record. The platinum plaque for canine representin departs, without a doubt, straight to Snoop.( No relation to Charlie Browns pet beagle from Peanuts .)

2 Martha My Dear, by the Beatles

Probably the most alluring passion ballad to an old English sheepdog released in 1968. Certainly the best of McCartneys work in overrated overcome combo the Beagles.

3 Leader of the Pack, by the Shangri-Las

The Shangri-Las – Leader of the Pack

The sound of puppy love. Remember when you were young? Thrilled by the world? Evolutionarily programmed to fall for the leader of the multitude, to lock optimum reproduction capability? Every bird-dog fantasy.

4 Hound Dog, by Elvis Presley

Elvis Presley play-acts Hound Dog

You aint nothing but a hound dog, crying all the time. Staggeringly contentious option, certainly among the hound community. Hounds are the original sporting dog, a hard-working, emotionally resilient and diverse sporting group. They too have a very strong confederation, so you wont catch me saying anything bad about them.

5 Bitch, by Meredith Brooks

Meredith Brooks Bitch

A 90 s ode to mothers of puppies and female empowerment. Brooks wrote the carol after she saw a dachshund-doberman cross, and realised anything is possible.

6 Can Your Monkey Do the Dog, by Rufus Thomas

Rufus Thomas – Can Your Monkey Do The Dog

Can my who do the what-now? How did this get on here? Its a pretty weird suggestion. Im sure theres some area of the internet that they are able to cater to such a twisted scenario, but this isnt it.

7 Chasing Cars, by Snow Patrol

Snow Patrol – Chasing Cars

Self-explanatory. I would have accepted Chasing Sidewalks by Adele, except it becomes zero sense.

8 Rene and Georgette Magritte with Their Dog After the War, by Paul Simon

Paul Simon – Rene and Georgette Magritte With Their Dog After the War

Arguably extremely conceptually dense for most bird-dogs. Examine at the number of prepositions in the name alone. Rene and Georgette Magritte, with their puppy, after the crusade. Why didnt he call it Wonderwall? Still, a literate breed a King Charles spaniel, or an Irish setter might get some happiness out of this.

9 Who Gave the Hounds Out? by the Baha Men

Baha Men – Who Let The Bird-dogs Out

Because whoever did is a bloody hero. This one goes out to all the dogs which is now need the toilet. Hoo! Hoo Hoo Hoo Hoo!

10 I Love My Dog, by Cat Stevens

I adoration my pup more than I love you? Yeah right leave it up, Yusuf Islam. A feline by any other call still aint get the hell out of there this list. Take a walk.
