Rumble / Dogs & PuppiesWho isn’t familiar with Jack and Jill tumbling down the hill, or Little Boy Blue falling asleep and letting his animals running amuck, or Little Miss Muffet getting scared by a spider? These stories have been around for hundreds of years, and while fun to chant (we can still recite many of them from memory), they also serve a very important purpose in the life of your loved ones.

We may all ask ourselves what is so good about nursery rhymes that all children love them and they are willing to participate in the songs without a fuss? Nursery rhymes are not only attractive for kids apparently but as this video shows, animals can be a great deal of drawn into them without being aware of the effects they have on their brains. Singing nursery rhymes and songs can help develop communication and social skills, understand and learn about different sounds from an early age. However, the whole experience with songs like this should be made more creative by using props and musical instruments since they can only sit for short periods of time so don’t expect them to sit for a half hour song time session. However, sometimes only the movements in the song are a helpful tool to engage your keep your child and pet animal engaged in the activity.

As nursery rhymes are fun and full of sounds, your loved ones will tune into these sounds. Oscar the blue chihuahua claps his paws on cue to the kid's song "If You're Happy And You Know It". Oscar is naturally comical, entertaining, and loyal little dog and he absolutely brimming with personality – a quirky and eccentric personality unmatched by any other breed. So, when Oscar hears his favorite nursery rhyme, he is more than ready and willing to show his dancing abilities. No sooner his owner starts singing, we see Oscar standing on his hind legs and he follows the orders from the song with his front paws Whenever he hears “clap”, he rushes to clap his paws the best he can while he waits for another round of the verse of the song. He is standing there like an obedient child in a nursery room, ready to obey whatever his teacher says. However, we can see that he thoroughly enjoys being sang to, without even batting an eyelid. Oscar really enjoys and cherishes these moments with his owner and he will rather clap his hands all day long.

After all, nursery rhymes are not bad at all, they are good for Oscar’s brain and since there is a repetition in each of them, they serve like a proper training routine for Oscar. They give him the sense of importance and a feeling that he has been cared for. Though Oscar may look like a shy dog, he feels confident while performing the song, because it is easy to grasp. We can easily see the connection between movement, rhythm and words which is a great way to get your dog listen to you.
