Music as beautiful as it is effective.
Since 2008, thousands of veterinarians and dog trainers worldwide have recommended the slow and simplified classical compositions of Through a Dog’s Ear. The breakthrough research behind Through a Dog’s Ear shows that the canine nervous system is extremely sensitive to sound — and that special arrangements of classical music have a profound soothing impact on anxious dogs. This clinically tested canine music is formulated for your dog’s calm behavior, as well as your discerning ear.
Traveling in the car can be extremely stressful for some dogs. Many of the more sensitive ones can exhibit anxiety issues while riding in a moving vehicle. We’ve come to understand that creating a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere in the car for these dogs is essential.
To accomplish this balance of driver alert/canine relaxed, we have continued to work with the principles of entertainment (the effect of external periodic tempo to change internal body pulse systems) and pattern identification (the effect of complex vs. simple patterns to arouse or relax brain function). In surveys with more than one hundred dogs using psychoacoustically designed soundtracks, we’ve found that once a dog is calm for about twenty minutes, moderately faster rhythms and more complex auditory data can be added to the sonic environment without concern for disturbance. Simply put, the dogs stay in a calm state even with gradually progressive increases in tempo and complexity. In the Car starts with slow, simplified piano music and gradually increases the tempo and harmonic complexity; this helps keep the driver awake and focused. In The Car also includes Travel Prep — an additional 20 minutes of music to prepare especially anxious dogs for riding in the car, as well as a behavior booklet with specific training protocols that address three degrees of auto anxiety.
In the Car is a drug-free solution that works to permanently re-pattern fear and stress, associating the car as a safe haven. Whether you’re taking your four-legged friend for a short spin across town, or on a long road trip, here is an invaluable music companion to help both you and your dog enjoy the ride.
