to us, that we begin to call it a therapy? No idea. Well, may be that’s the power of music – as simple as that. As many of us have experienced so often, we know for sure that music can heal our minds and souls quite easily. Why does music appear to soothe us?
Or, practically speaking, it just makes us feel relaxed! For instance, some Ragas (a series of melodious musical notes in Indian classical music) have the power to draw all our stress away if we sit down and listen to them quietly. We feel lively and fresh, especially when we listen to some instrumental music. Is it just humans who can feel these miracles of sound energy? Does listening to music affect animals too? More specifically, let’s find out what Mr. Fido has to say about music.
Light classical music means instrumental pieces that are usually composed of long and stretched notes. Dogs neither prefer nor is their behavior seen to be affected by something like rock or pop music.
Though it has not yet been ‘humanly’ possible to make a dog tap to musical beats (of course, some of us must have tried that quite earnestly), we can surely take efforts for our ‘best friends’ to feel more comfortable, not just with a softer bedding, but by catering to some of their innate needs; like helping them connect with nature through music.
