A delightful video has captured massive attention on TikTok, showcasing a Bernedoodle’s surprising and amusing reaction to a harmonica’s sound. This heartwarming clip has engrossed numerous online viewers, amassing an impressive 1.2 million views over the weekend.

The clip, available on the TikTok account named @elliethedoo, chronicles the daily adventures of Ellie the Bernedoodle. Ellie, an adorable mix of a Bernese mountain dog and a poodle, has grabbed focus with her latest misadventure involving a harmonica.

“The cutest reaction to hearing the harmonica for the first time,” is the text overlay on the video. It shows Ellie sniffing a harmonica held by a man near her muzzle curiously. As soon as the man blows into the instrument, Ellie unexpectedly jumps up and nudges the camera, igniting laughter before the video ends.

“So cute” is the concise caption of the video.


Ellie’s eccentric reaction is not completely unexpected as dogs are known to react differently to various types of music, according to a study published by Physiology & Behavior in March 2017. Certain music genres such as soft rock and reggae can induce a “significantly higher” heart rate variability in dogs, reportedly signifying “decreased stress.”

In contrast, genres like Motown, pop, and classical music have a “lesser effect” on a dog’s heart rate variability. The study also found that dogs tend to “spend significantly more time lying and significantly less time standing when music is played.”

In support of this, research conducted in January 2020 in Animals found that “animals seem less stressed or anxious when exposed to classical music than to control conditions.” The study concluded that classical music “offers potentially significant benefits in terms of animal behavior, health, and welfare.”
