For over 10 years I served as one of the principal performers for Disney’s award-winning Baby Einstein CDs and DVDs – an educational series designed to enlighten and entertain children of all ages. I’ve always been fascinated by the effects of music on people and soon became curious as to how classical music (in particular) affects pets – especially those that suffer from anxiety. Many studies have shown that pets respond favorably to classical music in stressful situations and often relax after only a few minutes of listening; However, it is important to use music that maintains a soothing dynamic from start to finish, which is NOT the case with most “off-the-shelf” classical music; however, Music My Pet provides continuous soothing sounds to calm dogs, cats, birds and all other pets (we’ve even had some customers use our music to calm anxious guinea pigs, rabbits, snakes and, believe it or not, a pet skunk!)
In achieving this soothing dynamic throughout our music, we've spent over three years gathering research and establishing a very careful selection process (with regard to music) to arrive at a series of three CDs, all of which provide relaxing music for dogs, cats, birds and other pets. The first release, “Classic Cuts,” features classical music from some of the greatest composers in music history (Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin and more). “Classic Cuts” is designed to calm pets in a variety of situations (e.g. when a pet’s owner leaves the house, thunder, sirens, loud noises, new surroundings, etc.). As a follow-up to Classic Cuts, pets and pet owners will enjoy our latest title – Mellow Melodies, which explores additional composers (Mozart, Grieg, Tchaikovsky and many others) utilizing the same soothing approach found in Classic Cuts. All selections have been re-orchestrated and arranged using the sounds, chords and harmonies that soothe pets – and their owners!
As a suggestion, play Music My Pet whenever a situation arises that may cause your pet to become stressed. For best results, listen at a relatively low volume and select the “continuous play ” or “random play” button on your CD player (or MP3 player) - this will effectively repeat the program until you wish to manually stop the music.
In addition to “Classic Cuts” and “Mellow Melodies," you may also enjoy our “Holiday Treats” CD during the winter months. “Holiday Treats” celebrates the season with timeless melodies, classically arranged with all of the sounds, chords and harmonies proven to help calm anxious pets (and their owners). So grab a cup of hot cocoa, curl up with your pet and relax to the soothing seasonal melodies you know and love. Our complete line of products consists of music for dogs, cats and all other animals.
