Pet Acoustics study finds music reduces anxiety in pets

Many commonplace sounds can induce anxiety in dogs. Pet Acoustics Inc. has released findings from its recent study on music’s impact on stress for pets. The company’s Pet Tunes Bluetooth speaker is designed for dog’s hearing which is at least twice as sensitive to sounds as humans.

"We're very excited to have our canine music scientifically-backed through biometric analysis,” said Janet Marlow, chief executive officer or Pet Acoustics. “This means that Pet Tunes music unequivocally benefits dogs by minimizing stress for separation anxiety, for use in animal shelter environments, to elicit a calmer response to thunderstorms and fireworks, providing best environments for veterinary hospitals, and to help calm travel anxiety. For pet parents and veterinarians, the study answers the question: 'What music can I trust to help keep my dog calm and balanced for health, Pet Acoustics!.’”

The speaker and music system is attuned to the dog’s needs while in potentially stressful situations. According to data from the study, playing music with the Pet Tunes Bluetooth speaker led to reduced pulse rate, and activity, and increased HRV data compared to pets who did not have music. The biometric data was gathered by a Petpace Smart Collar and was reviewed in real-time by the chief veterinary scientist at PetPace Ltd, Dr. Asaf Dagan DVM.

A total of 20 dogs participated in the study after being volunteered by the pets’ owners. The study was conducted by dog behaviorist, Ron Pia, who is based in Australia.
