    Default Music for dogs

    A friend sent me this link:

    http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...toryId=4530776

    Go there and you can listen to the full story and a selection of the songs, including 'Squeaky-deaky' (which would be a hit around my house). icon_dog

    But here's the little article:

    Pet Sounds: Album Targets Music-Loving Dogs

    Weekend Edition - Saturday, March 12, 2005 · The music world offers myriad genres: classical, rock, hip-hop...but what about canine? Musician and producer Skip Haynes wants to give dogs a reason to prick up their ears. He talks with Scott Simon about his CD, Ask the Animals: Songs to Make Dogs Happy!
    Haynes created the album in conjunction with an "animal communicator," Dr. Kim Ogden-Avrutik, who served as a sort of translator during focus groups to test out the music. Among the revelations: Some kinds of percussion (too much like gunshots) and the word "no" (not popular among many species) are not popular among dog listeners.

    Notable titles on the disc include "I'll Be Back," "I Love Food," and what Haynes says is the album's No. 1 hit, "Squeaky-Deakey!" Haynes says that by being in the room when the album is played for the first two or three weeks, owners can create a positive association with the music that later calms pets down while the owner is out.

    Funny, someone brought this up at lunch today. It must be making the news rounds. Maybe we should make our own recordings of songs for Cavaliers, sung by "Cavalier Talk" owners

    That's a brilliant idea. We could be the next Cav idols.

    I wonder what Simon Cowell would remark to that. icon_yikes

    Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.
