What is a Pet Playlist?
An algorithmically created playlist based on your listening habits and your pet’s attributes, so it’s music you both can enjoy.
Does it work?
While music for pets isn’t an exact science, we initially consulted with musicologist David Teie, a cellist with America’s National Symphony Orchestra, who pioneered species-specific music and composed two albums of Music for Cats. David advised on the general likes/dislikes of each animal – for example, dogs don’t respond well to music in the lower register as it’s often viewed as a threat. The rest of the process was mostly inspired by our own furry, fuzzy and scaly friends. For a more scientific playlist, please check out Mellow Meowsic, which Teie curated exclusively for Spotify. By the way, we only use the information you provide us for the purpose of creating your Pet Playlist. The information is not stored and is not used for any other purpose.
Why aren’t goldfish/tarantulas/snakes included?
Because they don’t have ears.
What about rabbits/aardvarks/horses?
Unfortunately, it just isn’t possible to accommodate every animal out there. That said, try one of the current playlist options. You may find your rabbit really likes hamster music!
