Re: Dogs & Drums
We've had 4 dogs, and for some reason, they seem to come towards me when I play! One of them used to sing along (I'll guess that the harmonics of the ride & crash hurt her ears...)
But, I'm pretty sure the volume isn't good for animals, I wouldn't make it a habit of locking them in the room while you practice.
You can acclimate the new pet by playing quietly, and gauging the reaction. Then just act accordingly during future practices.
