Did you know that playing certain types of music can actually decrease the level of stress for animals staying in kennels? Studies have shown that classical music can decrease the amount of pacing, barking and other anxious behaviors dogs display while staying in a kennel. One of the most recent studies was performed by the Scottish Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the University of Glasgow. Some previous studies suggested that different genres of music can actually have different affects on your pets mood.
Here in our boarding kennel we play classical music for the dogs and cats that stay with us. We also make sure they are walked at least five times a day. We figure there is nothing like a little sunshine and exercise to help improve your pets mood!
