Your Four-Legged Friends Can Have Their Own Curated Playlist with Pets by Spotify

Have you ever left the radio on or pulled up a Youtube playlist when heading out for the day to tide your four-legged friends over? How about singing to them? Even if you feel like a silly human for doing it, most animals seem pretty jazzed when they hear a tune sung by their pet parents. 

I’ve got two cats at home and I love to leave music on for them – usually classical or instrumental soundtracks to Disney or Studio Ghibli movies. It helped one of my cats get over an anxiety struggle too, so I swear by it! 

But when I get home, I don’t want to stop the tunes and I also don’t want to keep listening to classical music. On the flip, my cats probably don’t love everything I play. 

So Spotify brilliantly solved this music power struggle by creating a Pets playlist option!

It’s pretty simple:

  • First, you choose the type of pet you have from the following list: dog, cat, bird, iguana or hamster – sorry snakes, no tunes for you!! 
  • Once you’ve chosen your pet, you can rate their behaviours and temperaments – like how curious, how friendly and how energetic they are. 
  • From there, Spotify will put together a playlist based on their personality along with your listening habits so you and your four-legged pal can meet in the middle and enjoy some tunes.  

What I especially love about these playlists is that they’ve added varied artists in there that aren’t part of your music library, so it’s a nice way to explore new music while also enjoying some old favourites.  

You can get your own curated playlist for your pets here.
