    Default Dogs and Classical Music.

    Does anyone else here have, or has had, a dog that is either 'into' classical music or hates it?

    Zed hated it, literally. Would get all worked up as if he was about to have a 'stranger aggression' episode, so I put the little jukebox away.

    Have re-arranged the front entrance room again and will be putting it back out there tonight, so will see how the Newfie puppy relates to it when he/she arrives.

    Anyone got a story about this?

    Ziggy seems to have no interest in music, classical or otherwise. Perhaps Zed was particularly sensitive to either the jukebox (did it happen if there was classical music coming from another source such as the TV?) or certain frequencies in the music itself.

    maybe it is because it sounds like a wounded animal?

    It isn't classical, but one day a Guns n Roses song came on TV and Jackson was happy to just sit there and watch it.

    He was running a muck up until the song started, and he proceeded running a muck after it ended lol

    My cat dislikes mobile phone ring tones. She cries and starts to crawl all over you, usually when you try to select a ring tone that you like.

    Perhaps certain pitches affect them?

    A pessimist sees the glass as half empty;
    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    Perhaps they do, Anne.

    Reason I ask about others is because I used to have a dog that just loved it, and I do mean loved it.
    She would sit there and start to...well...sway slowly and put her muzzle in the air and perform a soft howling song of her own. TBH she would look like she had been hypnotised.
