Pets have different musical tastes
A new study has found that our animal friends display excited behaviour when certain genres of music are played, just as human beings do.
The results found that over a third of dogs go barking mad for rock, 30 per cent of cats love classical music, while 40 per cent of hamsters enjoy hip-hop beats.
Rebecca Downes Music, which conducted the poll of 2,000 Brits, said:
"It's official – pets love music as much as humans do and different animals have their favourite genres they react to.
"Some dance around, some jump up and down or simply get over-excited – just like humans."
94 per cent of musicians who own a pet said that their furry friends boost both well-being and creativity.
The study comes after animal behaviour expert Anna Webb created a Spotify playlist for dogs that is designed to have a calming effect on pooches.
