The babies apparently have their own unique smells, but prefer reggae and soft rock to classical: so heres a top 10 of dog-friendly tunes
A study by the University of Glasgow has been found that hounds prefer soft rock and reggae over other genres of music, conclusively substantiating humen best friend has the flavor of an embarrassing uncle hectoring the DJ at a wedding.
At a rehoming centre in the Scottish municipality of Dumbarton researchers played hounds a variety of music, during which heart rate monitoring and behavioural observation showed that stress stages lowered while listening to the unlikely genre bedfellows. “Theres” unconfirmed reports that the dogs utterly lost their memories when researchers cranked a mashup of Beenie Man vs Steely Dan. According to a schnauzer who was at the occasion: It shouldnt have worked, but it simply did.
Despite evidence that bird-dog dont just like reggae but in fact love it, the dog likewise answered well to Motown, classical and pop ways. For Professor Neil Evans, the mixed reaction been shown that like humans, our canine friends have their own individual music preferences. His resolution will make sense to anyone who has ever met a pup: its difficult to suppose a St Bernard listening to anything other than Bing Crosby, or a bug-eyed chihuahua who wasnt perpetually experiencing obsessive flashbacks to a soundtrack of hard German techno.
Following the findings, the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has furnished its kennels with sound systems, and compiling canine-appropriate playlists. Its safe to premise Lee Scratch Perry and Joe Cocker are lead candidates, but which other dog-friendly artists and songs deserve a home in the jam-pack?
