Do Dogs Have a Favorite Kind of Music

WASHINGTON – Do dogs have a favorite kind of music? A new study suggests they do.

Researchers from the Scottish SPCA and the University of Glasgow played a variety of genres of music — soft rock, Motown, pop, reggae and classical — for dogs at a shelter in Dumbarton, Scotland, and tracked their heart rates and behavior, the BBC reports.

Overall, the dogs’ two favorite genres were reggae and soft rock — perhaps it’s good advice to leave a little Soca Jukebox music on when leaving your four-footed friends alone at home.
