iCalmDog Reggae was created from 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. 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. It’s composed of 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 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. iCalmDog 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 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 iCalmDog Reggae
- “Just wanted to pass on how much everyone in my household is loving the new Reggae sound track. Of course, the real test is when my dog has one of his anxiety attacks! My dog is a rescue with quite a few issues so with him we have to do a combination of things to calm him down. When we played the Reggae music for the first time he started wagging his tail, sighed and laid on his bed. But what really amazed me was the reaction of my parrots. One of them has a noise phobia and will shake his head when he hears music. He sat on top of his cage just looking in the direction from where the music was coming from. The other parrot, who although is quite small, can be very loud. He, too, was listening to the music and was very quiet.” – Aline Murphy, Metairie, LA.
- “As moods of the people change, the dogs are equally as positively affected! Definitely more effective with the older dogs as I feel the bass is felt just as much as it is heard. Love the changing tempos, sounds in general, etc. I do feel the enhanced bass is beneficial to the dogs.” – Laney Murphy, Juneau, AK.
- “At work there are two aisle of shelter. In the one in which i play the reggae the dogs are more calm than the one where i play classical music. It calms more quickly” – Eli Johnsen, Ashland, OH.
- “I enjoy dancing with them to the Reggae music! We have fun. I love the upbeat type of music for a change from classical.” – Diane Wakabayashi, Lewisville, NJ.
