Creating a personalized playlist for your pet is a fun and interactive way to explore their musical preferences. You might be surprised by the tunes that bring joy and comfort to your pet’s daily routine!

What Is the Spotify Pet Playlist?

Spotify’s pet playlists, as the name suggests, is a feature you can use to generate playlists for your pets. When creating a pet playlist, Spotify considers these key factors: your pet’s type (cat, dog, etc.), personality traits (relaxed, playful, etc.), and your own listening preferences.

To develop the perfect pet playlist algorithm, Spotify partnered with renowned musicologist David Teie, famous for his “Music for Cats” albums. Teie’s expertise provided valuable insights into animal sound preferences. For example, research suggests dogs might find lower-pitched music unsettling.

Spotify’s Pet Playlist isn’t just about entertainment. It’s a chance to create a deeper bond with your pet. By providing a soundtrack that caters to their personality, you can potentially improve their mood and create a more enriching environment.

How to Make a Spotify Pet Playlist?

Spotify pet playlists are available to both Free and Premium users. Ready to DJ for your furry friend? Here’s what you need to do (the process is easy, but you’ll need to use a web browser, not the Spotify app):

Step 1: Pick your pet.

  1. On your browser, go to and click Let’s Go. Log in to your Spotify account if prompted.

Step 2: Tell more about your pet. 

To help Spotify pick the playlist vibe, you will need to set the personalities of your pet. From relaxed vs. energetic, shy vs. friendly, to apathetic vs. curious, select which trait most aligns with your pet.

Step 3: Add a name and photo. 

The playlist cover will feature your pet’s name and photo. So you can customize it by uploading a photo of your pet and typing in its name.
