Concert for Canines Planned

The May event in Austin, Texas, will feature music played at a sound level that only dogs can hear.

Munrab Entertainment plans to hold its first Canine Concert, an event where live music is played at a sound level only dogs can hear, from noon to 1 p.m., May 9 at Wooldridge Square in Austin, Texas.

And in order to find the right band for the canines, Munrab is asking people to vote at the website on what type of music they think their dogs want to hear.

Dogs are forced to listen to whatever music is blaring in their ears, but no one ever considers their feelings. They might prefer jazz over rock, or punk over folk. Who knows? Munrab spokesperson Suzanne Burns says.

Just as a dog whistle makes a sound at a level that dogs and puppis can hear but people can’t, the Canine Concert will have a band playing music aimed at the pitch dogs will enjoy.

Munrab plans to have special audio equipment on hand at the concert to adjust the live music to the level that only dogs can hear.

Anyone can take their leashed dog to the concert, and canines who like to paw a cymbal, drum, keyboard, or other instrument may do so during the concert if their owners provide the instrument.

It’s all a grand experiment to make dogs happy. We like people, but dogs are our best friends, Burns says.
Please visit the website to vote on the type of music to be played.
