A Breakthrough in the Treatment and Prevention of Anxiety in Dogs
Positively Calming is psychoacoustically designed music which has been clinically tested on 150 dogs. Not only does it have a scientific pedigree, but Through a Dog’s Ear soundtracks have become the standard for canine music therapy. Why? Because it consistently works to relieve canine anxiety.
It’s Me or the Dog’s Victoria Stilwell and the creators of the popular dog-calming music series Through A Dog’s Ear have joined forces to develop this groundbreaking and powerful new approach to dealing with noise phobias and sound sensitivities in dogs.
How does it work?
Dog’s Ear music is intentionally selected, arranged, and recorded to provide easeful auditory assimilation. Three primary processes are used to accomplish this effect: Resonance, Entrainment, and Auditory Pattern Identification. To learn more visit www.CanineNoisePhobia.com.
Each CD includes Victoria’s detailed training instructions in a 24-page booklet.

“Advances in modern behavioral science help us understand what our canine companions need to be healthy and confident. There are many ways we can improve our dogs’ lives – all designed to help them relax and have fun with their people. One such therapy involves using specially designed classical music. That’s why I’ve collaborated with sound researcher Joshua Leeds and concert pianist Lisa Spector, founders of Through a Dog’s Ear, to develop Calming” - Victoria Stilwell
By combining progressive sound effects, the specially-designed psychoacoustic music of, and Victoria’s reward-based reinforcement protocols, the Canine Noise Phobia Series is an innovative new desensitization tool that not only helps reduce the anxiety suffered by noise-sensitive dogs, but also reduces the likelihood of common sound phobias from ever developing.
The Consequences of Living in a Stressful World
When a dog feels stressed, it experiences a number of physical changes. Heart rate and blood pressure are elevated and breathing becomes more rapid while energy is diverted to other muscles that need it most for fight or flight. Digestion is suppressed, growth and muscle repair is halted, immunity inhibited, and senses are sharpened. All of this happens within a matter of seconds and allows the body to operate at its optimum level to ensure survival. This process is important if a dog’s life is in danger, but constantly experiencing these physical changes can put a lot of pressure on the body and increase stress levels, leading to long-term illness.
