You may prefer to relax to The Beatles or maybe Adele or Maroon 5. But your dog has favorite relaxation music, too. And she’d probably prefer Bob Marley. Scottish researchers found dogs seem to prefer reggae and soft rock over other music genres. Because when they played various tunes in a shelter, the dogs were calmer and lay down longer while listening to reggae or soft rock, as opposed to Motown, pop or even classical. And they showed a measurable decrease in stress levels.
So, want your dog to be more relaxed – especially when you’re away? Tune the radio to some reggae or soft rock.
