CBS news just had a segment on what type of music dogs respond to. This experiment was done at a dog care facility with dogs suffering from acute separation anxiety. When rap and heavy metal were played, the dogs became anxious and began fighting with each other. When classical piano music was played at a slow tempo, the dogs all chilled and went to sleep.

We have a cat that listens only to classical music. When the music is contemporary, loud or dissident, he will awake from a sound sleep and walk out of the room. He also despises band music and opera. He weighs twenty-four lbs. so we don't argue with him.

Have you noticed how your animal reacts to different music? Our other cat couldn't care less, unlike his roommate.

my dog gets really nervous on trips, often involving at least one "puke", but I have noticed that very soothing classical or jazz instrumentals help her a it. She prefers early romantic period.

Is that your dog Erin, after listening to classical? Scary.

I don't know about music, but when I wear my leather jacket, my dog sniffs me in horror.

she is the meekest little submissive thing, scared of cats, she was an abuse rescue...but I caught her yawning and couldn't get over how funny it looked.

Barbara Streisand and Whitney Houston scare the hell out of my dog. Come to think of it, I get a little irritated myself.
