If Your Dog Is Anxious, Play It Reggae or Soft Rock Music To Cam It

Sometimes traveling long distances with your dog can become stressful, but there is no cause for alarm. According to a new study, some reggae or soft rock music can soothe your dog. 

Researcher Sutton creates a ten-song playlist for dogs 

The Bee Gees’ 1977 song “How Deep is Your Love” tops the chart as the ten greatest calming hits for dogs. Around two-thirds of dog owners report that their dog gets stressed whenever traveling. This worries 75% of individuals going on vacation with their dogs this year. The majority of these travelers (72%) travel by car. 

University of West London’s senior music lecturer Sam Sutton compiled a playlist that can soothe a dog’s nerves when stressed. The list comprises Bryan Adams’ (Everything I Do) I’LL Do It for You,” Foreigner’s “I Want to Know What Love Is,” and Bob Marley’s “No Woman No Cry.”

Sutton said that a recent University of Glasgow study indicates that music can impact your dog’s behaviors. Researchers exposed dogs to different styles and sounds to evaluate behavioral and physiological changes. They noticed an intriguing phenomenon: whenever exposed to particular musical genres, dogs showed beneficial changes in behavior.

Reggae music can soother your dog. 

According to Sutton, the studio’s combination of sound aesthetics and pristine production makes it the preferred dog’s playlist. Usually, reggae is related to chilling out and sunshine, a mild emotional reaction shared with the dog. 

The survey conducted by One Poll on 2,000 dog owners established that 68% of owners were tuned to the feelings of their furry friends. Respondents indicated that they are aware some music type may stress their dogs. However, around 28% of the respondents didn’t know that music could upset their dogs. 

Other songs compiled by Sutton include Metallica’s “Enter Sandman,” Motorhead’s “Ace of Spades,” and ACDC’s “Black In Black.”  Considering a dog’s hearing range is wider relative to our hearing, Sutton recommends avoiding whistling music which can trigger the dog’s curiosity and natural sense.
