iCalmDog – soothing music for your dog to chill to

icalmdog3

Dogs are anxious creatures. Even the big ones. They completely lose their wits when things change, or they hear a loud noise, or you look at them funny. Big dogs. Little dogs. It doesn’t matter. They have no chill. The iCalmDog is an MP3 music player with a twist, since it’s designed just for our four legged friends, to help them find their center.

Each iCalmDog contains a music player that plays music or soothing words carefully selected to help the animal calm down from their really stressful situations. Like when you leave them at the groomers for the afternoon and they’re convinced you’re never coming back.  Or when it’s a thunderstorm and they’re sure everyone is going to die.

The iCalmDog is actually a device which can provide different programs for different needs, since each audio session comes on a microSD card. So as well as the standard 4 hours of audio that comes with the base unit, you can buy additional programs to cope with things such as thunderstorms, separation anxiety, and fireworks. The music is a mix of slowed down classical music (yes apparently your pooch really does like Brahms) which is designed to help the little critter find its happy place.

The player looks like a can with buttons on it, and you can either buy the basic model which can auto-repeat the audio for up to 6 hours on a charge, or opt for the extended battery version which can auto-play for up to 12 hours. Let’s put it this way, if your little tinker isn’t chilled out after 12 hours of Bach on auto-repeat, you’ve got some serious problems to deal with. I listened to a track just now, and I’m already half asleep.

Try it!

iCalmDog starts at $79.99 for the basic edition.
