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.2
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 reggae music even more beneficial.
Since 2008, veterinarians and dog trainers worldwide have recommended the simplified compositions of Through a Dog’s Ear. Now, with iCalmDog Reggae, you have another way to bring calm in this new, bioacoustically-designed fun and upbeat album!
