Human-Animal Bond

(1 customer review)


Beautiful music that keeps humans focused, dogs calm, and everybody connected.

Human-Animal Bond is sensory enrichment for dogs and their people, when you’re all home together. This rich tapestry of sound facilitates a state of awakened awareness in people – leading to creativity and/or productivity – while simultaneously providing a canine relaxation response in your dog. Herein, sophisticated sound therapy meets canine behavioral training. The music has the tone, tempo, and patterns necessary to gently stimulate the human brain while keeping two- and four-legged heart rates in a relaxed state.

The soothing, classical soundtracks include oboe, english horn, cello and piano music, bioacoustically-arranged to lull the mammalian nervous system into a parasympathetic/relaxed state. These orchestrations are mostly solo, but some duo or trio compositions are included as well.

Enjoy the beauty while your pups settle peacefully.

Music for the human-animal-bond brings sensory enrichment for pets and people

Since 2008, thousands of veterinarians and dog trainers worldwide have recommended the slow and simplified classical compositions of Through a Dog’s Ear. This clinically tested canine music is not only for your discerning ear, but more importantly, your dog’s calm behavior.

Human-Animal Bond was created with that principle especially in mind, as it is music for dogs and their people at home together. The American Veterinary Medical Association defines the human-animal bond as:

“A mutually beneficial and dynamic relationship between people and animals that is influenced by behaviors that are essential to the health and well-being of both. This includes, but is not limited to, emotional, psychological, and physical interactions of people, animals, and the environment.”

We want to create as healthy a space for our animals as we possibly can. This includes a well-considered sonic environment where unnatural sounds are diminished and where the soundscape takes into account the nervous system of the dog, as well as the human. When you’re also at home, you want music that is going to keep your pooch settled, yet keep you from snoozing, too!

Behavior Tip: This recording is best used when there are no anxiety issues present or expected in your dog. If there are stressful situations taking place (such as sound phobias, separation anxiety, excitement with visitors, or post- surgical recovery) we highly recommend that you play Calm Your Canine or any of the specific training programs. In that situation, Human-Animal Bond may be too active for a highly sensitive dog.

Specific applications of Human-Animal Bond include:

  • Focus on task
  • Relaxing at home together
  • Having visitors over
  • Veterinary visits
  • Grooming time
  • Calm and settle
  • Excitement with visitors
  • Car rides
  • Doggy daycare
  • Training classes

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 Human-Animal Bond

  • “I have two dogs, one with anxiety issues. This music amazingly calms both my dogs. I find it very relaxing as well. In addition to playing the music in the car when we travel with the dogs, I also play it in the house where I have their crates located… As with all dog training tools, it works best if you can introduce the dog to the music during normal, peaceful times. Now, when I have workmen in the house, the dogs go to their safe place in their crates, the music is playing, which calms them but also covers some of the noise from the workman. At the end of the day, they are much calmer and less fearful and I am much happier.” – Nonnie Gallo, West Fargo, ND.
  • “I work for a kennel managing day camp and the indoor open play can get hectic at times and popping in this CD can make a world of difference! Plus, it’s nice background music for me and my coworker 🙂 If it can positively affect 70 dogs imagine just the one or few in your home! Much better than random radio stations that can have anxiety or energy boosting melodies and tones! These albums are selected to be soothing and positive for dogs.” – Christina Downs, Simi Valley, CA.
  • “Not only is this a handy tool for settling an adult dog, but it is very useful for teaching puppies to settle for the night. My 6 week old puppies are nice and quiet with this CD playing throughout the night. There is a major side bonus. It helps me sleep, too. This is my second purchase. I wore out one CD!” – Kate Keating, Wakefield, MN.
  • “I was at a party where we all bring our dogs along. They were a few feet away, but on the other side of a mesh fence, so they could see us. While chatting and eating, the dogs were whining and barking, wanting to be with us. I popped in this album to a CD player. A few minutes later, I calmly told everyone to turn around and look at the dogs. They were all lying down and calmly enjoying each other’s company. Amazing!” – Pri Bakashi, Warwick, NY.

  1. Diane Swanson (verified owner)

    Our 10-yr old rescue labradoodle and 6-yr old black lab fall asleep to the Human-Animal Bond music. It’s wonderful! We are working on the sound phobias, which is taking a little longer due to extreme anxiety but with the great behavioral tips and music we are seeing positive improvements with both dogs!
    We just added an 8-week old puppy to the household mix which we are fostering. She will be a Service Dog for a veteran. We are so impressed with the success of the iCalm music for our dogs that we have ordered iCalm Puppy music. Thank you “Through a Dog’s Ear”!
