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.
Separation anxiety is the most common phobia in dogs. Like us, they’re social creatures, and have evolved with the bonds of pack. Losing that social attachment is stressful on some level for any dog, but others become highly anxious and destructive when left alone. This music and training protocol works to re-pattern and teach our dogs that departure is a normal occurrence and no cause for concern.
We partnered with world-famous dog trainer Victoria Stilwell to develop a training protocol for destructive, anxious, and panicked dogs. Victoria’s protocol helps you de-escalate the anxiety of leaving home, in order to permanently cure separation anxiety. Her training is followed by 3 tracks of 2-hrs, 4-hrs, and 8-hours of sequenced clinically tested re-arranged classical music combined with silence. The simplified sound and progressively slower beats-per-minute in Separation Anxiety are specially arranged to sync up to the natural rhythms of a relaxed mammalian nervous system, allowing your dog to find his zen even during stressful times. Before you know it, they’ll be in bed snoozing when you’re getting ready to leave for work.
Use Separation Anxiety for:
- Easing sleep or nap time transitions
- Noise acclimation
- Crate training
- Car rides
- Home training
- Potty training
- Relaxing together
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 parents say about Separation Anxiety
- “I have two dogs, a bouncy Golden retriever and a now older Westie. After moving across country the Westie became blind after just a few weeks in the new house. She didn’t seem to know where to put herself, but when I put on the iCalmDog music, she would settle down and go to sleep. The Golden relaxes as well. I have the music on when I am in the house and then turn it on when I am leaving. This signals to the dogs that all is well and they don’t need to worry while I am gone. When I get home, they are always relaxed and waking from peaceful napping. I quite honestly don’t leave home without using the iCalmDog, and if I forget, I will go back to turn it on. I can relax while I am out because I know my darlings are soothed and content. I love this device. It’s easy to use, it’s great to look at and I enjoy the classical music myself every night when I cook dinner. This is a great product.” –Ronna Dragon, Pittsford, NY.
- “Just amazing! Great sound, long tracks, one piano the other mainly violin classics. We all love it—humans and canine. When we leave our dog—a 7-month-old puppy—home for a couple hours he is happy and well rested, instead of anxious. I wouldn’t have believed it, but it works. The music is so beautiful I turn it on just to listen.” –Lori Schmidt, North Fort Myers, FL.
- “I can’t say enough about this amazing product. Our sweet rescue dog struggled with separation anxiety until we starting using it. It’s sturdy, well made and the results are wonderful. Every dog owner, vet, trainer, kennel and shelter should have one!” –Sandra Mitchell, Marshall, MO.
- “This is great. Both for people and animals. I work in veterinary medicine, and it really does make a difference playing it in the boarding kennel. We use the music in the room when owners have to say goodbye to their pets, and it is soothing to hear when I am charting patients at night. I actually bought one for use at home to play quietly at night to help me sleep.” –Marge Leski, Hillsborough, NJ.
