First ever' Christmas song for dogs has been released

November 18, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

A song that claims to be the first ever Christmas single designed exclusively for dogs has been released, featuring a reggae beat, squeaky toys and human voices.

"Raise the Woof" was created based on scientific research into the ways dogs interact with sound, and with input from animal behaviorists, according to dog food company Tails. com.

It uses a reggae beat and sounds of bells, squeaky toys and owners' instructions to illicit a response from listening dogs.

Videos posted online showed dogs seemingly reacting to the high-frequency sounds.

The company said the track was devised with the help of a focus group of 25 dogs, who were played more than 500 sounds and analyzed for their responses.

"Signs that dogs are enjoying the track include alertness, trying to discover where the sounds are coming from, head cocking, or moving their ears to get a better listen, as well as tails wagging," the company said in a press release.

Some limited research has suggested that dogs respond positively to music.

A 2002 study found that dogs in a shelter became more relaxed when played classical music, while research from the Scotland's SPCA charity in 2017 suggested that the animals enjoy reggae and soft rock.
