Years ago I used to watch Neighbours ( Aussie soap for the uninitiated ) - oh ok I still watch it now ( insert blushing icon ) - and this was when Samson was a pup - I would feed him as soon as the programme had finished.
Now as soon as the signature tune for the end of the show plays he is up on four paws waiting for something to eat.
He'd already been fed this evening but it didn't make any difference
Neighbours = FOOD
Not a taste for any particular music, but I think it's neat how a dog get's programmed, even when we don't realize it's going on....
When we walk, every time I see a car coming I say "car" and take Rocket off the street into the yard we're standing in front of, and we just stand there until the car passes.
Now when we walk, if a car is coming, he automatically gets off the street whether I do or not.
(I haven't used the word "car" as a command, yet, though but plan on testing that one out soon)

That's cool! I have never noticed Theo discriminate a particular song or piece of music. During a brief period when I had some magnetic-ribbon speakers, Radiohead would make him growl.
Hey Radiohead make me growl too
What taste you have
Well, she's programmed to bark when the neighbors come home because she wants to go play with them. Considering they work nights and come home sometime before dawn...that's no fun. I guess that's payback for me because she probably wakes them up by barking when I take her out in the morning. :-\
There is one song by Busta Rhymes that comes on MTV that she hates. I hate it too. She just jumps up and tries to knock the tv over if I don't change it soon enough.
I give her props for good taste though. She likes the sound of car engines when I play the races real loud on my tv. My dog rocks.
My Labs don't react to music, but I once had a mutt, Suzy (1975-1990) who sang (howled) whenever I played opera records. Then she would "sing" to "Bridge over Troubled Water" whenever I played, sang or even softly hummed the music. Then as she got older, her music appreciation deteriorated to commercial jingles - Maxwell House and Coke.
when i saw this title, i thought this was going to be about dogs chewing/eating tapes and cd's.Does your dog have a taste for music ?
but, your story reminds me of pavlov's dogs and the famous dinner bell.
