Music for pets provides simple calming sounds and can improve health and behavior.
Cats and dogs love human beings. That’s why they are the most popular animals to share our homes.
People, dogs, cats… we’re all herd animals, and it feels safe to be together. However, our sensory environments have become very toxic. People know how to de-stress when it all gets to be too much. However, our animals don’t do yoga or go out to the movies. By being in unnatural environments, pet stress leads to illness and difficult behaviors. Beginning in 2003, we began to research how to use sound to restore balance for both 2- and 4-leggeds.
The over-arching psychoacoustic theory informing iCalm music for pets is summed up in just two words — simple sound. This term refers to the process of minimizing intricate auditory information. The music of iCalm is intentionally selected, arranged, and recorded to provide easeful auditory assimilation. Clinical research on dogs, cats, and people have found that while we hear different frequency spectrums, the mammalian auditory system, that we share, functions basically the same. iCalm music for pets is individually designed for each species, based on our own and other’s clinical research, supplemented by anecdotal feedback received since 2003. Music for the enhancement of animal function is both a growing science and valuable art form.
