Does my dog like it when I sing?
Surprisingly…yes! According to a study done at the University of York, speaking in sing-songy “baby talk” to your dog “can fulfill a dual function of improving attention and increasing social bonding.”
To paraphrase, your embarrassing “doggie speak” (and squeak) can make your pooch pay more attention to you and ultimately strengthens the special bond between man and man’s best friend.
Phew! So I guess my dog loves my singing after all!
