Both dogs and cats can suffer from separation anxiety and other types of stress. While television and radio are commonly thought to relieve anxiety for pets, the opposite is often true. Pets often respond with increased anxiety when hearing the mixed multitude of sounds and voices on the TV and radio. The sound that appears to be most calming for pets is classical music.
Music My Pet is classical music for pets. Tom Nazziola created this calming music CD especially for animals. He previously served as a principal performer for Disney’s award-winning Baby Einstein CDs and DVDs. Nazziola recommends playing the music at a low volume, and setting the CD player on either continuous or random play. The video below has a cut from Music My Pet Part 1. Check it out, and think about what you can do to relieve your pets anxiety through rhythm and melody!
