Does your dog enjoy your guitar playing

As much as this one seems to?



My dog pretty much ignores me when I play. If he's feeling sucky/ left out, he'll come and put his chin on my knee. That's about it.

Cheers,
Geoff

One of my cats is fine, the other runs from the room if I even touch a guitar.

Not a dog owner, but in warm weather playing outside the mockingbirds always join in.

Everytime I crank up my electric, our dog runs into the next room. Everyone's a critic huh?

If I had a dog, he or she would love my guitar playing. Just like all those ladies who always throw their underpants at me during my solos. When I played, the dog would dance like Fred Astaire, and we'd go on TV and become millionaires. Because that's how awesome my playing is, and...

What... huh... Aw crap. I hate waking up from that dream.

My pup is kind of ambivalent about playing electric or acoustic. He just thinks that I should be paying attention to him instead. He's especially helpful when I'm sitting in one of the easy chairs where he usually sits on my lap. Not to good for technique to have a 60 lb dog on your lap.

Now congas he likes and curls up nearby. I don't think that he likes the bongos too much but he likes to lick the rawhide heads. At least that's as far as I let him go.

Somewhat tangential, but..... I did a remote recording last night for a classical piano and tuba duet. The pianist's dog seemed very happy under her piano. It was fine until the damned thing started to twitch and snore in the middle of the second movement. Had to try to silently wake it, so it wouldn't ruin the take.

One of my dogs loves music. She will lie on your feet under the piano, and she especially loves harmony singing.

During a break at a neighbor's jam party last weekend, she went around and nudged each player as if to say, "Hey! You sounded good!".

I wrote a tune once and named it for this same dog. I'll sing the melody using her name (over-and-over) as the lyric. That's her favorite song, of course.

Not the current ones. The last one would lay on his side and wag his tail; sometimes one howl and then quit. That one was a music lover. New ones are snobs.

That is a great video in the original post. The dog is actually grooving to the music and not happy when it stops!

I can't really tell if my dog likes my playing or not. He doesn't leave the room. When I do a solo he usually comes closer howls. He might be trying to jam with me or maybe he's telling me to shut up, not sure.

My dog leaves the room when he sees me pick up a guitar. We have a parrot (African Gray) who listens intently when I play. Of course being in a cage makes it hard for him to leave!

I've got two dogs, a Brittany and a mutt that's half beagle, half Rhodesian Ridgeback. The brit loves it when I play, because every once in a while I'll put down the guitar and he gets some time on my lap. He also likes it because the other one leaves the room and quits bugging him.

I'm not sure, I doubt either of my dogs enjoy my playing. I can confirm, however, that they strongly dislike the volumes I use.

No dog.. but Trem the cat usually registers his displeasure by leaving the room. Unless I have lyrics or tab in front of me, in which case he lies on the sheets. He is a regulation A4 sleeping cat...

Yes, I have a terrier that comes into the room to listen. No idea why really, probably for a good laugh.
Before this one there was a big black gundog retriever something, that used to go up on stage and sleep in that nice nest of a blanket someone had made for her in the bass drum. She was born on a party and was always free. She got a bit hard of hearing later on.

My friend's dog seems to. Comes in and lays down right in front of the amp.


But he might be deaf at this point.
