My youngest dog likes Country/Bluegrass!

I like to "experiment" with my dogs to see how they react to different sights, sounds, smells, tastes, or whatever. Today I decided to see how they react to music. I had some Country/Bluegrass songs on my cell phone. My older dog (the mom) was indifferent but my youngest loved it. She didn't show a reaction to every song that played but there were some that she loved. She cocked her head and stared at the cell phone with rapt attention with her ears perked up and a look of doggy joy on her face. When each song was over she turned back to me and if the song was one she liked, back to the phone. It was interesting to watch. I think next time I'll see how she likes classic rock. Here are the songs she liked:

This was the first one. It really got her tail wagging.


This one had her absolutely transported. I asked her if she liked it and she gave me a big hug and went back to the cell phone, entranced.


This one got her really excited.


This really got her attention.


This one had her excited, too.


She was staring with rapt attention with this one. She even pawed at the cell phone to pull it closer and lowered her head with her ears cocked.


Do your dogs react to music? What do they like?

My Norwegian Elkhound adores listening to Willy Nelson.

Maybe she's detecting some high frequency sounds in country/bluegrass that humans can't hear.

That's awesome!
None of my dogs ever really showed a preference to any music genre. My Boston Terrier, Retard, would stop whatever he was doing and make himself comfortable on the couch and watch the entirity of Ghostbusters. He was cool.

That's cool. Your dog has good taste.
I had Willy Nelson and Waylon Jennings doing a cover of the Eagles song Take it to the Limit but she ignored that one. I'll try another and see what she does.

I thought of that but it wasn't every song that she reacted to. The ones I listed were the only ones she paid attention to out of and hour or so of music.

Why did you call him Retard?
He had good tastes in movies then. I could watch that one over and over.

His given name was Dante. But I called him Retard because he would do some seriously retarded stuff.
He had a fur brother who is still alive, another Boston. Stinky. Self-explanatory, there. His name is Brody.

I had a Papillon that loved it when I played harmonica. She would sit on my lap and sing along in cute little howls.

I remember now one day I played "Dust in the wind" in the car and my dog started to cry in the part the violin plays.

I also believe animals can feel the music.

Too funny! One of our cats likes classic and 80's rock best. Any good rock, really. When I played something country one night, he looked annoyed. The other two pets seem to pay no attention.

That's cool, a blues collie. Is this one that gets your dog excited?

That's America's funniest videos material there. Too bad you never got it on tape.

That reminds me of a cat I had. She liked metal. If I played anything else she ignored it but if it was metal she was all over the cell phone.

The cat gets all fluffy and happy with the rock, but irritated with other stuff. He's a trip, anyway - very smart cat!

Heh, my dogs only react to phones ringing and/or if they see me talking on the phone. Really they think takeout is coming and can't wait to try and steal some Chinese food.

Here's a prank to play on your dogs: Pretend that you're ordering food on the phone and then after a while knock on the wall so they think the delivery guy is at the door. Okay, maybe not. It is kind of being mean to them.

I do that sort of thing, lol. But they will ALWAYS have a treat waiting for them.
