Best Dog Related Songs

There have been countless songs released over the years, all with a common theme, our faithful companion, the dog. Whether it’s 1953’s “How Much is that Doggie in the Window” by Pattie Page or 2015’s “Little Boys Grow Up and Dogs Get Old” by Luke Bryan, all generations of music listeners have a favourite go-to song to add to their pooch playlist. Music is the easiest way for someone to express their emotions, so we see songs about all sorts of good times and bad times, but there’s always a loyal dog throughout it all. Here are some particular favourites:

  1. “Martha My Dear” – The Beatles 1968: Believe it or not, this song isn’t about a potential love interest. Martha was inspired by Paul McCartney’s Old English Sheepdog.
    “Hold your head up you silly girl
    Look what you’ve done
    When you find yourself in the thick of it
    Help yourself to a bit of what is all around you.”
  2. “Seamus” – Pink Floyd 1971: Critics claim this song to be the worst Pink Floyd song ever released. This song isn’t about a dog, but rather features Seamus the German Shepherd howling along to a blues track. Personally, I think it’s a wonderful song showing that dogs too have a soul.
  3. “The More Boys I Meet” – Carrie Underwood 2007: This country ballad proves that sometimes, all you need in life is a dog’s love.
    “I close my eyes, and I kiss that frog
    Each time finding
    The more boys I meet, The more I love my dog.”
  4. “Atomic Dog” – George Clinton 1981: A song about all types of dogs with the catchiest bridge that you’ll be singing all day.
    “Harmonic dogs, house dogs, street dogs
    Dogs of the world unite
    Dancin’ Dogs
    Bow-wow-wow-yippie-yo-yippie yeah”
  5. “Who Let the Dogs Out?” Baha Men 2000: To end on a nostalgic note, the iconic song that was played at every school dance ever. While this song might not actually be about dogs, it is a favourite to canines everywhere.
    “Who let the dogs out
    Woof, woof, woof, woof, woof.”

Why Does My Dog Walk Around in Circles Before They Lay Down?

Circling around before lying down is likely a residual instinct from when their ancestors lived out in the wilderness. Your dog’s ancestors would have paced in circles to flatten down and warm their sleeping area.
