Storm Lorenzo: Keep your dogs calm with this peaceful Spotify playlist

Storm Lorenzo: Keep your dogs calm with this peaceful Spotify playlist

If your dog gets anxious or frightened during storms, it might be worth playing this relaxing, curated playlist for him/her


Bad weather can be scary for some pets. Between the loud sounds of blowing wind, clattering rain and rumbling thunder – not to mention the possibility of flashing lightning and sudden power cuts – storms can be overwhelming for some dogs.

Now with Storm Lorenzo fast approaching, there’s no doubt that dog owners will want to keep their four-legged friends calm. With that in mind, the team at Pedigree has curated a special, soothing playlist for dogs.

The paw-fect playlist

“At Pedigree, we know that some dogs can become very nervous and vulnerable during a storm,” they said. “We also know that there are some simple, practical steps we humans can take to help them through it, and so we created Lullabies for Lorenzo – a Spotify playlist of soothing tunes to help keep dogs calm as Lorenzo makes its way across Ireland.

“Music is proven to help calm pets, just as it helps to soothe people during times of stress and anxiety. So pop on our playlist and mask the stressful sounds of the storm outside with our carefully chosen peaceful pooch melodies.”

The playlist consists of 12 tracks, which add up to more than three hours listening time. Having had a quick listen to it ourselves, IMAGE.ie can confirm the music is just as relaxing for humans as it is for our pups.

Spot the signs

There are a number of ways to spot if your dog is frightened or anxious. Terry Curtis, a clinical behaviourist at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine told National Geographic that, “Signs of anxiousness in dogs are ears back, tails down, eyes wide, panting, lip-licking and yawning.”

In addition to playing relaxing music from the Lullabies for Lorenzo playlist, make sure they have access to a safe indoor space. Whether it’s his/her favourite corner of the living room or kitchen, it’s worth laying out a cosy blanket (or a worn jumper that smells like you). Leave out your dog’s favourite toys too, to act as a distraction from the scariness outside.

Listen to Pedigree’s Lullabies for Lorenzo playlist on Spotify now.
