Top playlist of Dogs release by spotify?

Pet Shop Boys or Snoop Dogg? Spotify releases personalised pet playlists



If you've ever felt guilty about leaving your dog home alone, Spotify may be able to salve your conscience -- by bringing out a podcast and range of playlists aimed at soothing lonely pets.

The Swedish audio streaming site, which has 113 million subscribers, has launched a range of "algorithmically curated" pet playlists and a new podcast intended to calm dogs left on their own.











According to a survey of 3,000 pet owners who stream music in the UK, around three-quarters say they already play tunes to their animals and believe they love listening to music.
The platform has also created a new podcast for lonely dogs designed to keep them calm when their owner is away from home, called My Dog’s Favourite Podcast. Each episode features dog-directed praise, stories, affirmation messages and reassurance, with the soothing voices of Ralph Ineson and Jessica Raine.
Dr Samantha Gaines, RSPCA dog welfare expert, said: “While nothing can ever replace the company and presence of a dog’s two-legged friend, research is increasingly showing the effect of music on dog behaviour.
“The type of music a dog listens to is important and research has shown that some music can help dogs relax while other types may have a less beneficial effect so it’s really great Spotify have curated and produced music with dogs in mind.”


The final step includes telling Spotify your pet’s name and uploading your favorite picture of their cute face. Then the streaming site’s algorithm says it is “syncing your taste” and spits out a personalized playlist.
Tank’s Pet Playlist included “Velvet Kitty Cat” by Prince, a song from the Moana soundtrack and a Rose Cousins tune titled “The Benefits of Being Alone” — which reflects his human’s brand and seems to communicate a special message for his frenzied, feline ears.
To develop its Pet Playlists algorithm, a Spotify spokesperson said the streaming company consulted with musicologist David Teie, a cellist with the National Symphony Orchestra who pioneered species-specific music and composed two albums of Music for Cats. Teie’s expertise informed the calculation, like how dogs don’t like low-register tunes because they can feel threatening.
Spotify’s initiative is just one of many pitches that tech companies and others have served pet owners who are hoping to help their animals be happier. There are “Canine Lullabies,” premium cable TV network shows produced specifically for your dog that show pups in aesthetically pleasing landscapes or for your cat that show fish swimming around in an aquarium.
Spotify concedes that pet music “isn’t an exact science” but said the goal of Pet Playlists is to build upon the “true connection” pet owners feel between their “beloved animals and music.”
This pet owner just hopes Tank’s Pet Playlist becomes the calming soundtrack that keeps him from peeing in her potted plants.

"The type of music a dog listens to is important and research has shown that some music can help dogs relax while other types may have a less beneficial effect so it's really great Spotify have curated and produced music with dogs in mind."
