The bond between humans and their dogs is one of a kind, filled with unconditional love, licks, cuddles, and snuggles. Other than pure enjoyment, it’s difficult to put into words the emotion these animals generate in us. So it’s only natural that we want to make them happy, and many pet owners believe that music may help them accomplish just that.

The good news is that you can easily create a Spotify playlist that you and your pet might enjoy together.

The Pet Playlist provides a list of songs that you and your pet may appreciate based on musicology research and a pet-focused poll done by Spotify. The songs on the playlist are chosen based on the type of pet you have and their personality.
