Frontline has worked together with Spotify to create a playlist specifically designed for our dogs’ well-being – both to uplift and calm. You can find the playlist on the Spotify app.
Music playlist including Prince, Elvis Presley and Sheryl Crow launched specifically for dogs to help calm, uplift and ensure mental health is looked after as the lockdown begins to ease for the nation.
EXPERTS have compiled a music playlist together to keep dogs occupied as owners ease themselves back into normal life.
Vets are warning of an increase in emotional problems for many pets and owners are expressing the same concerns. Two in five owners say that they are worried about their dogs for when the lockdown is fully lifted while 42% say their dogs will be confused when their owners start to be home a lot less.
The five-hour playlist is designed specifically to be played while owners are out of the house and with affirmations to make sure your fluffy pal knows just how much of a good boy he is, it can keep dogs occupied and in the right frame of mind while they’re home alone.
In between every track, your pooch will hear “You’re a good boy. Did you enjoy that song? Shall we listen some more?”
Pet flea and tick treatment experts FRONTLINE® have got together with the world’s most popular streaming service Spotify to devise a playlist of songs designed to keep lonely dogs company. Songs include one of the most prominent pooch-themed songs – Elvis Presley’s ‘Hound Dog’. Reggae is also a clear favourite for the nation’s dogs as both Inner Circle’s ‘Sweat’ and Yellowman’s ‘Zungguzungguguzungguzeng’ make appearances for our pets to wag their tails along to.
Many dogs may feel a certain affinity to some of the tunes, with Pink Floyd’s ‘Wish You Were Here’, Player’s ‘Baby Come Back’ and Chicago’s ‘If You Leave Me Now’ also making an appearance.
Geoffrey Guyot at FRONTLINE® said
“As lockdown eases, we will start going back to our usual activities such as going back to work. Unfortunately, this means many dogs will be left alone at home, which they might find stressful after spending so much time with their owners. Many of us listen to music to unwind and relax and we wanted to extend those benefits to dogs too with our very own Spotify playlist.”
Over half of Brits (52%) say that music is important to the well-being of their dog, with 46% of pups singing along to a merry tune and another 42% showing their enjoyment by wagging their tail.
What’s more, the nation’s dogs have got a lot needier since lockdown began, with one in five Brits saying their pets have become more clingy when they leave the room and a further one in five say they’ve noticed a lot more restlessness in their dogs.
Still, another one in five Brits are making good use of their free time and are giving their pooches top treatments with a lot more pampering sessions.
FRONTLINE® conducted the research to find out how the nation’s pets are dealing with the lockdown as well as how we can ease our dogs back into normal life.
