Studies have shown that dogs prefer classical music to any other genre, reports CBS news.
Research from Colorado State University found that dogs in animal shelters were less likely to bark and more likely to sleep when played the likes of Mozart or Beethoven.
Heavy metal, by contrast, was found to have the opposite effect, inducing nervous shaking and barking, and stopping the dogs from getting any sleep.
Moreover, classical music can reduce dogs’ stress levels and potentially increase the likelihood of adoption.
So you can dress up your pooch in all the studded collars you like … at the end of the day our dogs are a little bit more highbrow than that!
