Relax my dog

A new sample to try out!

RelaxMyDog.com have been getting great feedback from their Youtube viewers. Their music has two distinct futures:

1) the track at the start of a CD will begin with a high-pitched noise (0:50 in the video) that is meant to attract a barking, distressed dog’s attention

2) nature sounds are incorporated in the music – at first I guessed it was part of the calming process, since that is what they did to me, but as RelaxMyDog.com explains, the nature sounds are there so that your dog is less scared once it leaves the house/hears the sounds without the calming music in the back. I guess it’s like using music instead of treats to make positive associations. A very interesting concept!

I’m really keen to try out these tunes on my dog, but (thankfully) no storms are scheduled in the near future and we don’t have any travel arrangments (Vadim is not too happy about long-distance travelling, though it is better than it used to be). So do let me know how your pets react! Also, does this work on cats? The website seems tailored to dogs only, but from the previous experiment it looks like cats may be calmed by similar music…
