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. (See Why Music for Dogs.)
Recent research suggests dogs exposed to a variety of appropriate musical styles stay calmer longer! Rotating iCalmDog Reggae with classical Through a Dog’s Ear piano and trio compositions actually prolongs the canine relaxation response. According to 2017 University of Glasgow/Scottish SPCA research, “…the effect of habituation may be reduced by increasing the variety of auditory enrichment provided.”
iCalmDog Reggae (iCDR) music, by the Through a Dog’s Ear team, is calming by design, however one doesn’t expect it upon the initial hearing because it is energetic and exciting by nature. As gleaned from our surveys, iCDR has bioacoustic nuances that makes it a valuable complement to your canine calming library. Similar in how we, as people, have certain pieces of music we use for different purposes, the same principle applies with the addition of iCalmDog Reggae to the Through a Dog’s Ear library. Like people, dogs differ in their sensory perceptions, sometimes day to day. What works for some may not work for others. Further information can be found here.
If for any reason the music in this bundle is not effective for your particular household, you can easily exchange the enclosed CV micro SD sound card for a CC micro SD sound card. We actually recommend having both. Return/Exchange information.
