Calm Your Canine

(2 customer reviews)


It’s all about the music.

Since 2008, the music of Through a Dog’s Ear has been used in homes, clinics, and shelters around the world. These beautiful classical arrangements are specially designed to calm dogs and the people that love them.

All dogs are highly receptive and sensitive to sound. They hear twice as many frequencies as people, at a capability over four times our own! It’s no wonder that so many dogs struggle to adapt to living in our noisy human environment. So we created a solution that relaxes their overstimulated nervous system, through the use of simple sound. This clinically tested music lets them slip into a settled state of rest – without drugs, CBD, or intensive training. The music of Calm Your Canine relieves separation anxiety, masks sound phobias, quiets barking, and ultimately lets your pup find their zen.

There are many ways to listen to Calm Your Canine. Take your pick below.

dog calming music to reduce canine anxiety

Music as beautiful as it is effective…

The sensory environments that dogs live in can have huge impacts on their personality, perception, and tolerances for years to come. To have the calm, well-adjusted dog of our dreams, we must pay attention to and create a peaceful sonic environment where their nervous system can find a relaxed state.

To fully understand the intersection of sound and the canine relaxation response, we spent 5 years researching this topic, far before we produced our first album, Calm Your Canine, in 2008. Through a Dog’s Ear teamed up with veterinary neurologist Susan Wagner to develop and hone a unique understanding of how the canine ear can be soothed with specific patterns and frequencies. Using that insight, we created music shown to be twice as effective for soothing dogs as conventional classical selections.

The science proves it: studies show these solo piano classical arrangements reduced anxiety behavior and induced calmness in 70% of dogs in shelters or kennels, and 85% of dogs in households!

Our goal was to make music as beautiful as it is effective. Calm Your Canine delivers that perfect union. Soothing solo piano soundtracks have been specially re-arranged to synchronize with the natural rhythms of a relaxed mammalian nervous system. Music that you can enjoy with your furry companion—and, most importantly, will help your best friend live a happier, healthier, and well-adjusted life.

How iCalmPet music programs work

Music for pets provides simple calming sounds and can improve health and behavior. The over-arching psychoacoustic theory informing iCalmPet music is summed up in just two words — simple sound. This term refers to the process of minimizing intricate auditory information. iCalmPet music 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. iCalmPet music is individually designed for each species, based on clinical research and supplemented by anecdotal feedback received since 2003. Music for the enhancement of animal function is both a growing science and art.

What dog owners say about Calm Your Canine

  • “Our Chihuahua has PTSD from before she came to live with us. I ordered this as well as the separation anxiety one. Both work within minutes to calm her down.  – Cindy Yametz, Sacramento, CA.
  • “I own a doggie daycare in Anchorage, Alaska. We average almost one hundred dogs in our facility each day. They are separated into seven classrooms, each room having approximately 12-14 dogs. We have been using the Through A Dog’s Ear series since 2007 and find that they are a key component to keeping our clients active, yet calm in a safe environment. We hear from our clients and the public who walk into our lobby that it sounds like a spa. They cannot believe we have so many dogs in our care given how quiet it is, and our facility has no sound proofing.” – Kari Campbell, Anchorage, AK.
  • “When I put the music on, all three of our Labs come into my craft room, find a favorite spot and almost immediately go to sleep….I sometimes play them when a storm is approaching, as we live in Florida and get tropical storms and afternoon storms during hurricane season. They really soothe all of the dogs and the music is enjoyable to me.” – Marianne White, Oakland, FL.
  • “The music that I hear is not only calming to animals, but it is also calming to children and adults. It can help anyone or any animal get a good nights sleep. Just listening to it is very calming. You can’t go wrong.” – Emily Boliver, Asheville, NC.
