We found this story on Yahoo! News and thought it was interesting enough to pass along. It seems animal psychologists have researched what kind of music if any, animals might enjoy:
Many pet owners leave their home radios playing all day for the listening pleasure of their dogs and cats. Station choices vary. “We have a very human tendency to project onto our pets and assume that they will like what we like,” said Charles Snowdon, an authority on the musical preferences of animals. “People assume that if they like Mozart, their dog will like Mozart. If they like rock music, they say their dog prefers rock.”
Against the conventional wisdom that music is a uniquely human phenomenon, ongoing research shows that animals actually do have the capacity for music. But rather than liking classical or rock, Snowdon, an animal psychologist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, has discovered that animals march to the beat of a different drum altogether. They enjoy what he calls “species-specific music”: tunes specially designed using the pitches, tones and tempos that are familiar to their particular species.
Hmm.. Maybe they should add a “Species Specific” category to the music section of the ITunes store!
But just because your dog doesn’t like Rock & Roll or Rap, it doesn’t mean he can’t look like a Rock Star on one of our custom Album Covers featuring your pet!
