Did you know that most dogs tend to prefer reggae music to most other genres according to some research that was done by people who research stuff.
The Scottish SPCA, along with the University of Glasgow, recently published a paper that suggested most dogs prefer to chill out to the mellow tunes of reggae music.
And who can blame them?
For most people, reggae music can chill us out, which is an essential thing in today’s shaky society.
Dogs at a rehoming centre in Dumbarton were played a variety of different tunes and then were assessed to see how the music affected their behaviour.
Professor Neil Evans, who was in charge of the research, said that the majority of dogs which displayed positive behavioural traits after listening to music, had listened to some reggae.
Next on the list was soft rock (there wasn’t any mention about the effects that grime or ‘happy hardcore’ music had on the four-legged volunteers).
Talking about the results of his research, Prof Evans said:
“Overall, the response to different genres was mixed highlighting the possibility that like humans, our canine friends have their own individual music preferences.”
So next time your dog starts biting your toes or the next time your dog tries to eat your sofa, then why not put on some laid back reggae beats?
Then you can sit back and watch in amazement as your dog rolls over and demands nothing more than a chilled out tummy rub.
