Music for the Pets

Ever wonder why noises make your pet anxious? Long periods of silence means that your pet may become sensitive to any noise. Even small sounds can become sudden and unexpected sounds to them. And those noises may often cause your pet to be fearful of similar sounds, such as fireworks and thunder. The best aid, besides toys and treats, is a calming sound or white noise. Music or a calm TV channel will often relax and give your pet something to listen to while you are away. You can find these things and use it on any technology in your home including your television/smart TV, radio computer and Smart Home Devices, such as Alexa or Google Home. Here are our top recommended channels and genres.
