How does music affect a dogs behavior?

I know that music can help people to calm will it help dogs?


Answer by  Elysha45 (77)

Yes there is a possibility if you actually buy the right music for it. If you put on high rhythmic music or a CD with high tones it can affect your dog's nervous system and make him/her hyper or changed in behavior. However, with simple music with low tones you have the chance of having your dog relaxed

Not all dogs like music, we have a dog and every time he hears a familiar ice cream song that has a shrill, distinct sound always makes our dog annoyed and he would scratch and howl and scramble around in his cage. This sound has the same effect to the other dogs in our neighborhood.

In my own experience, my dogs have always responded positively to classical music, played at a low yet audible level. I used to volunteer in an animal shelter and this is what we did to help keep the animals soothed and calmed. The vets at that shelter believed animals reacted to music much like humans.

From articles and magazines, it is scientifically proven that some sort of music can calm your dog. But it is said to only help the hyperactive dog that responds to outward stimuli than other dogs that are more calm.

I read a study two years ago that stated that music will actually help calm any pet.. even horses. Just as they are attuned to the tones of our voices they become the same way about music. To calm your pet play music with soothing vocals and a soft melody.
