You might think your dog would have an aversion to noise but your dog’s response to that is likely more complicated than you realise.
Read more:Cybex, the dog-themed arc trainer, has been testing the limits of dog noise in the park since its debut in 2016.
As part of its ongoing research, the company has conducted more than 30 trials with more than 70 different breeds of dogs.
In one trial, one of the dogs was placed in a small area next to a cybex arcade, where it would hear an audio playback of the Cybex Arcade theme song.
After being subjected to a number of sounds, the results showed that the dogs reacted differently depending on the level of noise.
In the first trial, it was found that when a cybin was played, it would startle the dog.
In a second trial, the sound was played in a room filled with sound sensors, including the dogs ears.
In both trials, the dogs were also given an opportunity to perform a test that would measure their reaction to the noise.
The results showed the dogs could not be trained to listen to the sounds if the sounds were loud enough.
Instead, the test was run in a quieter room, which was louder.
In total, there were over 50 trials, and all of them showed that both dogs and humans react differently to loud noise.
While dogs may be more sensitive to loud noises, the researchers say that humans do not seem to be immune to the effect.
“The difference between the two species is that humans tend to be very social, but dogs are more introverted and prefer to be with family members,” Professor Andrew Mather, from the University of Queensland, said.
“Our findings suggest that both the dogs and the humans are less sensitive to noise when it comes to the sound of other dogs.
This is not surprising as both species are social and social interaction is one of their primary means of survival.”
Both dogs and people tend to get used to hearing sounds of other animals, especially if they are a dominant animal, and may be exposed to even more noise from other dogs and other people,” he said.
The study was published in the Journal of Experimental Biology and is the latest in a string of research that suggests dogs have a very special sense of hearing.”
It’s very interesting that when we hear sounds of animals other than our own we react differently,” Dr Mather said.
He said the results also showed that dogs had a preference for sound that was familiar to them.”
We don’t necessarily see that dogs have that same preference for sounds that we do for other sounds.
“But this is not to say that they don’t have that preference for certain sounds.”
