Anupan Boonchuen, a Thai entrepreneur, and director of a dog grooming school launched dogradiothailand.com last week as he believes that music will make dogs feel happier. For instance, he often plays music when his students are learning to groom dogs as they are more likely to allow his students to handle them. Boonchuen said that it has always been his dream to start a radio station specifically for dogs, but it was always to expensive -- until he came across the more cost effective alternative of Internet radio.
The radio station will mainly play Thai pop music but will also air programs where DJs will "talk to dogs" and his canine target audience are encouraged to respond. When slow songs are played, he will encourage DJs to howl. Why? Because dogs howl when they are sad too!
