Why do you play music to pets?
For many years research has shown the calming effect that soft music has when being played in many different situations for both humans and animals. Over the last decade or so music produced specifically for certain species of animals has become huge. There are whole radio stations dedicated to dogs and series upon series of CD’s with music specifically designed to calm your dog or cat. We find that playing soft music in the background of the cat and dog accommodation creates ambience, provides comfort and masks some of the sounds that may cause your pet stress. It breaks up the silence and is especially useful for those that aren’t too fond of the sounds that an impending storm creates. We play a selection of soft classical music as well as a mix of the Through a Dogs Ear and Through a Cats Ear CD series.
