Online radio station for dogs
The world's first internet radio station for dogs has been launched in Thailand.
DogRadioThailand.com features barking DJs playing vocal and instrumental music around the clock, reports the Bangkok Post.
Owner Anupan Boonchuen believes listening to music has an effect on canine behaviour.
He said: "I've noticed that dogs often respond to music. Some wag their tails. Some lift their heads while lying on the floor.
"At my grooming school we found that when we turned on music the dogs' mood improved. They were more obedient and let us trim their hair easily."
It is reported that ten students from the dog grooming school have been hired to work as DJs
Mr Boonchuen added: "One of the main qualifications is that he or she must be good at barking because dogs are our listeners, the DJs may have to make different sounds, such as whining or barking, to match the mood of music they play.
"And they must be able to communicate with the dogs, even if they can't see them."
