Can dogs sing? We don’t know the answer to this for sure because as far as we know, dogs cannot pronounce human words, but still could be musically inclined. A musically-inclined dog could recognize the high and low notes of sounds and sometimes could keep up with the tone and the rhythm – sometimes, the pitch.
You’ve probably seen some of these musically-inclined dogs perform over the internet, and you’ve probably seen them play live in national television. Not all of these dogs are musically-inclined though, but at least they tried. It’s even possible that these dogs appreciate music even more than we realize. We even know of one TV show that had made ‘canine’ singing contest a hit among dog owner viewers.
How will you know if your dog ‘loves to sing’? And this is another question that remains unanswered. One of the things you could probably do is to expose your dog to all sorts of music, and see if he responds to at least one of them. Your dog may not be able to respond to the first song that he hears or even a few more after that. It might take a bit of patience on your part though – as the case with this singing dog named Honey.
Honey’s owner recently discovered that the dog is particularly drawn to Michael Jackson’s songs. Whenever she plays the song “Will You Be There” – one of the theme songs to the 1993 film Free Willy – Honey ‘sings’ along. She may not be able to pronounce the words, but her rhythmic ‘howls’ goes along with the song’s tone, rhythm, pitch, and style. Play the video below, and see how good a singer this dog Honey is:
