On the Spotted Witney community Facebook page, pet owners thought playing classical music was a great idea.

Michelle Robbins said: “That's awesome. I leave classic on for my dogs in the day. I assume they like it as they haven't requested a channel change.”

The programmes will be broadcast from 6pm to 10pm on Friday 5 and Saturday November 6.
