Next time you’re walking around in your underwear that panting coming from your dog may actually be him laughing at you.
ABC News: Nancy Hill, director of Spokane County Animal Protection, admits she was skeptical at first that this noise would affect the other dogs.
“I thought: Laughing dogs?” Hill said. “A sound that we’re gonna isolate and play in the shelter? I was a real skeptic ?? until we played the recording here at the shelter.”
When they played the sound of a dog panting over the loudspeaker, the gaggle of dogs at the shelter kept right on barking. But when they played the dog version of laughing, all 15 barking dogs went quiet within about a minute.
“It was a night-and-day difference,” Hill said. “It was absolutely phenomenal.”
