Based on clinical research!

Researchers from University of Glasgow and the Scottish SPCA performed clinical testing with 38 dogs. Their research suggested that reggae music was successful in calming canines in the most stressed pet environment – the animal shelter.

From a bioacoustic vantage point, the 2017 published findings from Scotland were not surprising. I believe the right combination of tone, tempo, and pattern is key to effective sound therapy for people and pets.
With reggae, there is:
• A predominance of bass, which tends to discharge the nervous system.
• Tempos are basically slow and with iCalmDog Reggae, even slower.
• Simple melodies and harmonies, thereby allowing quick pattern recognition that leads to passive hearing – great for calming the mind.

All in all, reggae-style music contains ingredients perfect for canine relaxation. Through a Dog’s Ear has applied innovative arranging and studio techniques to make this fun and upbeat reggae music even more beneficial.

Why is fun important to healing the pet household? 

As a pet’s guardian, nothing is sadder than when the human/animal relationship becomes tattered. When something goes awry, be it pathological, environmental, or accidental–and we can’t find solutions to help our animals be comfortable in our human environs–it’s a heartbreaking time.

I know from decades of work with therapeutic sound and people, that there is a distinction between healing and curingiCalmDog Reggae may not be a magic wand for everything, but it sure creates a joyful environment that allows difficulties to dissipate and affectionate heart space to return.

With iCalmDog Reggae, innovation meets fun. We know you’ll enjoy these joyful rhythms while your pups snooze!

How to Use iCalmDog Reggae

We’re looking to create positive association. If you have a nervous canine, we suggest you play iCalmDog Reggae when your dog is not exhibiting anxiety. This will allow your pooch to associate this music with a positive state of being. When you have done this at least three times, you can proceed to using iCalmDog Reggae when your dog is exhibiting anxiety. If the music doesn’t keep your dog calm at first, stop and use it several more times while not anxious. You may also want to discuss additional therapies with your vet, behaviorist, or trainer.

Specific applications include separation and thunderstorm anxiety, fireworks, excitement with visitors, stressful times with people, boarding, pre- and post-surgery, training classes, and introducing new animals to your home.

Play iCalmDog Reggae at a very gentle volume and play it often. We want your dog to become very familiar with this music. It doesn’t need to be played continuously, but we suggest 1-3 times a day for the first month.

Specific applications include:

• Calm and settle
• Focus on task
• Stronger noise masking
• Soothes elderly and hearing impaired dogs
• Fun and healing
• Keeps dogs calmer longer



Mix it Up! Variety is the Spice of Life!

Rotating iCalmDog Reggae with classic Through a Dog’s Ear piano tracks actually prolongs the canine relaxation response. According to the University of Glasgow/Scottish SPCA research, “… the effect of habituation may be reduced by increasing the variety of auditory enrichment provided.” Dogs exposed to a variety of appropriate musical styles* stay calmer longer. In other words, variety is the spice of life for doggies, too.

* While each dog’s sensory perception may differ, some musical styles (i.e., Hard Rock, Heavy Metal,  Jazz, Motown,  Rap) have been clinically proven to have a non-calming effect on most canines.

    Jesse who has noise phobias had a panic attack as my husband was pounding meat in the kitchen. He knocked over my ceramic trash can & broke pieces of it. Too bad I did not think to turn on the music ahead of time. But thank you so much for helping my baby!

    I just had to share this with you.

    I enjoy dancing with them to the Reggae music! We have fun. I love the upbeat type of music for a change from classical.

  3. Eve

    At work there are two aisles of shelter. In the one in which I play the Reggae, the dogs are even more calm than the one where I play classical music.

  4. S. J

    We have 2 dachshunds 7 years old, Katie is prone to anxiety of new people and Abby who has a neurological disorder, making her unable tp walk, but she crawls. We have a therapist for Abby and she is the one who introduced me to the icalmpet. I love this product very much and wanted upbeat some music, the Reggae is perfect. Abby needs more active therapy an d the upbeat music is great, we exercise to the music. Both Abby and Katie respond well, but Abby is a very active littler girl and I play Reggae for her and we do exercises to the music, it is fun.

  5. J. E

    I had read an article that dog’s appear to respond to both classical and Reggae music and was so interested when you offered this option. The day I received it was a particularly windy day (one of my little guy’s anxiety triggers) and I could see he was getting somewhat anxious. I loaded it into my ICalmDog and within 10 minutes he was in a “chill” zone! Love it!
    He seems to like the Reggae music most of all. Relaxes him pretty quickly and he often falls asleep!

  6. Shelly

    I like the music because I can play it when we are focused on a workout or another exercise. Not sure I would consider it calming as such, but more focusing and invigorating.

  7. Diane

    I enjoy dancing with them to the Reggae music! We have fun. I love the upbeat type of music for a change from classical.

  8. Jeanny

    It felt too repetitive, no real melody. I enjoy Reggae and have some CD’s, but this was not enjoyable nor did my pets respond as I had hoped. I love all the other music we have for our cats and dogs from you though.

  9. A.P

    Helps to calm her

  10. Micheal

    I use cd on repeat. Found that the player was not reliable

  11. N. K.

    My 3 cats don’t seem to relax as much with the Reggae music as they do with the classical music.

  12. Leslie

    Definitely more effective with the older dogs as I feel the bass is felt just as much as it is heard. Love the change in tempos, sounds in general, etc. I do feel the enhanced bass is beneficial to the dogs. As moods of the people change, the dogs are equally as positively affected. It great to have a more upbeat variety that’s for sure!

  13. S.D

    I would increase the length of the music or decrease the price. I purchased the chip and it is kind of expensive for what you get. Again, it is really too soon to tell the effects as we just recently purchased and received any of the iCalm products.

  14. Annie M.

    I really enjoy the reggae and my dogs are settling even quicker in the car when we have it on. They used to bark for the first 3/8 of a mole in the car. Now they are usually quiet by the first 1/8 of a mile.

    I loaned the cd to my son who’s new puppy suddenly developed intense drooling upon entering the car. Just prior to their 7 hour drive home. She was calm and able to settle and sleep with the reggae music cd. I’m hooked and will recommend to others. Now I need to order another since my son won’t give it up!!
