It reminded me of how my dog likes the piano. If she had a trunk that would be her.
She loves the guitar and the piano, both live. Pick up the guitar or sit down at the piano, and she’ll be there right away. It soothes her when she’s frightened of thunder or fireworks. It also helps when my sister plays her happy folk music on the guitar and sings. She seems to really like that.
Her best dog friend, a spaniel called Floppy, has an owner who is a very accomplished pianist and has a grand piano. If we go to their house after a walk both dogs run straight to the piano and crash under it, hoping for some music. It’s very sweet.
Music from speakers doesn’t seem to have the same effect. It works for far away thunder so she can’t hear it, but she doesn’t really like it particularly, I don’t think. I wonder if sound through speakers sounds different to her? We tried a thunder cd that slowly gets louder to try to get her used to the sound, and it never bothered her at all. I always wondered if it didn’t work because she hears sound from speakers differently.
My cat never seemed to react to music, I don’t think she cared.
Anyone else notice their pets reacting to music?
