I really wish I had seen this story this morning instead of this afternoon! This morning Kramer was in the car with me and I think I may have been stressing him out. A researcher has created a playlist for dogs while they’re in the car.

A music professor has put together a Spotify playlist for your dog. According to the Daily Mail, 65% of dog owners say their pooch gets stressed while traveling in a car. Kramer is actually cool in the car, he loves it! Eddy definitely gets stressed.

Sam Sutton, from the University of West London, says Reggae and soft rock are the best choices for your dog. Here’s a playlist of the tunes that will help to keep your dog calm in the car.
