AllMusic Review by

Intended as an album of soothing classical music to calm a rambunctious dog, Bark! And Other Musical Delights for Your Dog is a compilation of slow, quiet pieces that may actually benefit dog owners more than their pets. Included are the usual selections one finds on random classical collections, works by J.S. Bach, George Frederick Handel, Luigi Boccherini, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Johannes Brahms, and other famous composers of lyrical and serene music that has the potential to make hyperactive puppies and energetic pooches settle down for nap time. The tracks are taken from ABC’s catalog, and the performances by David Stanhope and the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, Simone Young and the West Australian Symphony Orchestra, and Antony Walker and the Orchestra of the Antipodes, among others, are digital recordings made between 1999 and 2013, so the sound quality is quite good.
