The first run had absolutely no effect on Gina, she didn’t leave the room but she was just as nervous as always. I can’t complain, at his worst, rather than snoozing the day away on his bed upstairs, he follows me and looks concerned-if I seem really badly off to him, he’ll lean against my hip or press his nose into my side or chest). For the next pup, I might branch out to full orchestrations. Many of you know that my dissertation research was about the effect of different types of sounds on working domestic animals, and so it’s not surprising that I am especially interested in this topic. When it was bed time in the hotel I placed the ipod recordings on a loop and played them all night. If the tempo of a piano piece is greatly slowed, the bloom and decay of each note is more obvious. Kogan refers to “classical music” as resulting in more frequent observations of dog sleeping, but as Dr. Snowdon reminded me, “classical music”  includes a broad range of pieces, from soothing selections like “Moonlight Sonata” (one of the pieces played to the dogs in Kogan’s study) to the 1812 Overture, which one would hardly describe as “soothing,” at least not to humans. It was. Anyway, our dog also seems to be calmed by Gregorian Chant, and other slow and soothing classical music. One of them is to play Through A Dog’s Ear CDs every night at bedtime. If the selections were the same pieces, I think we would have been able to compare the simplified, less beats per minute song to the original song and have a better opportunity to understand, beyond the TADE pilot study, if modified the songs make a difference. Some tracks were much louder than others when transfered to my ipod. I do think that unless you’re trying to use music as white noise to mask more stress-inducing sounds, it’s important to allow a dog access to a good amount of what passes for silence, so I try to provide many hours of that for my dogs, too. Dogs do appreciate specific styles of music, however, contrary to what many people believe, a dog howling along with music does not represent a canine attempt to sing. Welcome to an ongoing inquiry about the behavior of people and dogs. Perhaps the speakers used conveyed the music of a full orchestra better than simple piano music? A song heard at home may have a tremendous effect on my mood, though when heard at the grocery store, the same song barely registers. Also note that my CD player has a feature where you can not only play it on a continuous loop, but play random tracks continuously. What is clear from the research and the comments above, I would argue, is that we are wise to attend to our dog’s responses to his or her acoustic environment, and that we might be able to use sound as yet another way to influence behavior and happiness in our dogs. Contact Us | The dogs seemed to respond very well and didn’t bark knowing there were missing all the holiday action. Interestingly I also found that the first volume of TADE was much less consistant for level of recordings. Unfortunately in stressful situations (thunder, fireworks etc) it didn’t aid at all. I think it is the combination of the ‘white noise’ and the low-tone vibration that calms, relaxes, and sends him off to Dreamland. The reverberations from the drum can be felt (by a human) for several yards at least and heard by the human ear over quite a distance (half a mile at night easily). My singing to the dog (off-key though it is) also seems to soothe him. My one year old dog got car sick as a puppy and now has anxiety and drools in the car. As far as I recall, the researchers found differences in brain structure between people who had a deep emotional response to music and those, like me, for whom it was a more or less pleasant, take it or leave it, experience. So as an expert on dogs and music, I thought you might lend us your insights. Some of the writers have mentioned a possible fundamental difference of effect between low and high sounds, and I DO think there is at least that possibility. Open mobile menu I have tried numerous methods( alone and in combination) to calm my dog, including the Dog’s Ear CDs. We have the entire collection of Through The Dogs Ear, and I can’t say that my dogs are more or less relaxed while listening to it, but it does seems to mask the scary noises of life outside the house. I’d say we are half way to her linking my shutting Willie’s crate as a cue for her to run into hers. I think an interesting test would be to get “normal” recordings of the pieces used in Through A Dog’s Ear, and study the effect the normal recordings have vs. the modified versions. Today Finna handles car rides well although the radio has to be on and she settles best if we sing. Most of the photos are of the strikingly colored males, but I have a soft spot in my heart for the females, their colors are so nuanced. I love how many people admit that it calms, them, too — I am not alone ;-). However, his pieces are ‘simplified,” they have fewer notes and perhaps might be differentially affected by the speakers and room acoustics. I wonder what dogs would consider to be the most important sensory experiences? From my experience the CD is effective which also leaves me confused? Both were on the first week away from Mama, which is a pretty traumatic time for a new pup. During the study, dogs' stress levels decreased significantly after the music was played into their kennels. I have also tried to use more soothing radio stations when I leave to go to work after reading the Through a Dog’s Ear book. Those features include: 1) Longer notes tend to be calming, staccato (short, repeated) notes stimulating (think saying “Sta-a-a-a-a-y” to a dog versus “Pup-pup-pup-pup” when calling to come). I work in Surgery, so my day is generally filled with a lot of noise (it really is a loud environment, lots of background noise). In addition, it also helps to calm me down, so when we have our “goodnight routine,” with each dog getting a a bit of focused personal attention, my heart rate is slower and I get into the flow of saying goodnight to them and giving them their scratches and rubs. I’d assumed that it was due to association rather than any soothing qualities in the music. Or, for example, if new dogs were introduced to kennels in view of resident dogs during the same selections of music over a number of days. Terms & Conditions | Seriously, it would be like torture to me, and it would be to my Border Collies too. For years he had to be locked away while she practiced. Classical music helps dogs spend more time sleeping and less time barking when they're housed in kennels or temporary accommodation, new research claims. The second part of his positive association came later- now that Otis is a markedly GOOD eater, washing dishes is still associated with a pleasant and comforting time- the quiet relaxing period after dinner when bellies are full and the family is together. We also know, from Snowdon’s research, that we need to look at the acoustic range and vocal repertoire of each species before we make too many assumptions about what kind of sounds have what effect. The particular piece of music used in the study was a section of Music to Calm Your Canine  Companion, music included in the book Through a Dog’s Ear. One of the dogs in the pack was a female, possibly Anatolian Shepherd mix that kept staring at us and would stand about 50 yards from the house, obviously hungry and unknown to us – pregnant. The first time she heard my daughter practicing the piano she didn’t react at all, no going to investigate, not even any ear twitches. I’d never play them that slowly ! The provision of a separate sleeping area from the run gives flexibility for the dog, and a larger kennel will allow more choice of places to rest, play or explore. Behavior, but did the Kogan study replicate a kennel/shelter environment or use an existing shelter? I talked to Kogan about her results, and she too was surprised by the dog’s responses to the “Dog’s Ear” music. A musician in Florida name Michael Tyrrell has done extensive research in frequency response. When my daughter began learning piano this same cat would jump up beside her and bite at her hands to make her stop. I have not noticed any change in my dogs behavior for any of the three types of music/noise. When I’m comfortably ensconced in a chair at a concert, I very much enjoy listening to dramatic music, but I’m ALWAYS happy to hear stuff from the Baroque and Classical periods, and also from what I think of as the New Age. Our kennel panels are totally modular (meaning that you can easily change the size or shape of your dog kennel set-up at any time), feature an industry-best 14 gauge steel frame and our exclusive climb and chew-resistant 6 gauge welded wire mesh design, both of which are coated from the inside-out with a thick and protective hot-dipped galvanized finish on our kennel pro series. Can’t hurt, right? I have a dream of owning a place with a few acres, where stressed shelter dogs can come to relax and get help with their behavioral challenges, and one of the things I plan for them is that they’ll have the option to have individual music specially chosen for them, or be part of the, ‘communal soothe’. It was fascinating. I do wonder if the masking effect of music would keep them even calmer, but as it would irritate me and thus increase the overall stress levels in the house it would probably be counter productive …. It is well known in science that replication of even highly controlled studies (and reported in peer reviewed papers) between labs is …well challenging. If they like rock music, they say their dog prefers rock.\" That compares with 1.1 % of the time during periods of no music and 1.4 % of the time during the presentation of the Dog’s Ear music. Ah, a perfect opportunity to let Tootsie figure it out on her own. I don’t find piano music particularly soothing, no matter from what compositional period. Elizabeth’s comment did make me remember that when we first got Olive (semi-feral, anxious, etc), and she and I would go for a walk, if a song popped into my head, I would start singing and Olive would stop, turn back, and stare at me and not move until I stopped singing. After all, the Dog’s Ear music is sold as having proven effects on dogs, and large numbers of people have reported that the music is helpful to their dogs. The length of the tone was much longer and more rounded if viewed as a wave in a recording program than the tone of a beat from a drum with a much smaller head. We love this dog so much and I want to make sure we’re sensitive to anything that might harm her, as that’s the last thing we’d want to do. These days she barely notices but will occasionally give me that look of “don’t quit your day job.”. Or it could be that the ones who pile together have been here longer, so they’ve heard more music, period, than the newer dog. I’ve been trying to find the research I read about recently into differing human emotional responses to music. Never thought much about music and dogs, we do not play music very often, certainly not as ‘background’. I have used Through a Dog’s Ear for a while now (two years maybe?) Oddly, it seems I only know the tunes to Christmas songs and We Shall Overcome, so I hummed those very very slowly. Perhaps the dogs resumed a settled state slightly faster because the music was on??) Life in a household was almost constant exposure to new sounds for her.

I played music continually (or the tv) in my boarding kennel for 27 years. I don’t know if it was the actual music that calmed her or the fact that the music muffled the sounds from outdoors, but it doesn’t really matter to me. They also know when the music turns on that it is time to go to their “beds” and they will receive a Kong or some other treat. Oh, I forgot to say that we hardly ever listen to that album now. At the human tempo, although there are more notes being played per second, the result may be a more constant level of sound. that’s always been my belief with dogs.” It has just been a gut feeling of mine, but I have never heard of any studies verifying it, nor I have heard of any followups on the babies/ classical music idea.
