Calming sounds for dogs


Calming sounds for dogs

I've heard about the concept of "calming sounds" for dogs, but I had no idea what they were.

Today I was at the mall and saw a pet shop and was really impressed by their calming sounds for dogs. I went in and heard all the different calming sounds and found a CD that came with a little book.

The "calming sounds" for dogs is a simple concept. You take a CD, and play the CD for your dog. When they hear the sound, they're supposed to stop doing whatever they were doing. I read in the CD's liner notes that the idea is that when the dog hears the sound, they "go into listening mode" and begin to "watch" or "listen" for the next calming sound.

I got a few ideas from the CD's liner notes:

One of the sounds was a "whistle", which I could think of as a kind of "whistle of encouragement".

Another sound was a "barker" (that sounded like a barker from a dog shelter)

And then I found a few songs that made me think "dog music", songs that seem to be "in the style" of what a dog might hear. The music seemed to be a little more "folksy" than I was used to hearing.

So, to summarize, here's what I came up with:

A) Find calming sounds for dogs. There's a whole range of calming sounds. Here's a link to a site that lists them: http://www.dobodogs.com/

B) Buy a CD with a few of these sounds on it. You can get this CD for free at your local veterinarian.

C) Use the calming sounds for your dog, and when they start doing something that you don't want them to do, just play the calming sounds over the top of the noise.

I'd love to know what others think about this approach. Is this a good idea? How do you get your dog to "listen" to your "music"? Do you need a special CD?

I have two dogs. One is a mix of labs/whippets/husky. She is mostly hyper. The other is a husky/basset mix. He is hyper at times, but very calm. They both love music. We have had lots of calming music CDs that work well for us. My friend's sister had a rescue beagle that was terrified of loud noises so she gave the CDs to her when she was a young pup. She is now 12 and has never had any trouble around loud noises since then.

I have heard of that. I just had a friend show me a CD a while ago. The CD's on there are called "Calming Sounds for Dogs". It's a CD I don't know if I'll ever buy. I don't have any dogs.

I think it depends on your dog. My dogs are hyper at times and I would need something that is low to the ground so that they can't reach it.

I have a pug and when he is around people, he will become hyper and jump up and start to do all kinds of things, even if he is in the house. It's just the way they are.

However, when he hears music, he calms right down. I can put on a CD that I know that is slow and not too loud and he just stops everything he is doing and listens.

One day I was at the store and they were showing off one of those dogs with that really high-pitched whine. I knew that sound and started wondering if I could use it to train my pug. I found the CD that came with the product and downloaded a copy of it. It's a pretty cool concept, but I don't know how much effect it will have.

It also depends on the kind of dog you have. My husky/beagle mix was fine with the CD, but I wouldn't think that a poodle would be.

I am not a vet and not really well versed in the topic. I have had a few dogs over the years and have found that they all react differently. However, my current dog likes to "listen" to the calming sounds. He likes the sound of the barker so I have been using that often. The only thing I know is it seems to work with my dog.

Yes, this would be a good idea for your dog. I have 2 dogs. One is a mixed breed with a high energy level and another is a husky. When they hear music, they stop whatever they are doing and watch/listen for the next sound. The only thing I would advise is to buy a different kind of music than you normally hear in your house. I found my dogs like to have music on while they are in the house.
