Music helps dogs chill out, and they might have personal preferences – The Denver Post

By Karin Brulliard, The Washington Post

Does your dog need to relax? Maybe Fido just needs to hear some Bob Marley or Air Supply.

Or better yet, get Spot a Spotify account, because new research indicates that when it comes to music, dogs like variety.

In a study conducted with the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, researchers at the University of Glasgow played six-hour Spotify playlists from five genres of music to shelter dogs. On one day, the dogs heard classical; on others they grooved to soft rock, reggae, pop and Motown. The researchers recorded the dogs’ heart rate variability, their cortisol levels and behaviors like barking and lying down — all measures of stress levels — as they listened to the tunes, as well as on days when no music was played.
