Do all dogs hear the same way?

Our other Golden used to sleep under the piano when I played. She'd move from wherever she was to sleep under the sounding board. Penny, on the other hand, always asks to go out.

The other room was much bigger with 10' ceilings. Both this one and the other one have carpeting.

Do you think Penny's hearing is more acute than Polly's was. Or should I take her leaving the building as a critique? :(

Some dogs are more sound sensitive. My Jasper is extremely so. He can't even handle the sound of applause, he has to get away from it. Danny on the other hand is not bothered at all by it.

It may have something to do with the size of this room vs the other room or maybe the construction of this house conducting vibrations.

She never hung around in the other house but she didn't ask to go outside either.

The piano is large, a concert grand, so maybe there's just too much sound for the room. Whenever I play, I feel I want to have a window or door open a little to 'let the sound out'.

She's okay with thunder and fireworks. Doesn't like angry yelling but doesn't mind happy yelling. She's okay with the stereo. In fact, a lot of what I play 'live' I also play on CD's so it isn't like she just doesn't like Schubert or Mozart. ;)

If I stop playing to change music books, she'll wander up the walk to the porch, then when I start again she goes back out to the yard to lay down. It's kind of demoralizing. I can hear her thinking "Egads, there she goes again". :uhoh:
