There are many reasons that a dog may feel nervous and anxious. Studies have shown that music has a way to “calm the savage beasts” and t is true with humans and animals alike. Dogs feel anxious when traveling or when left alone for long periods of time, causing them to be destructive, chew on themselves, defecate in the home, vomit or hide out. When it comes to your dog’s anxieties, speak with your local Rockford-area veterinarian as listed below or one closest to your home and ask about the soothing effects of music to relieve your pet’s stress.
It can be quite disturbing for you when your dog is so stressed and anxious because you love your dog and try to provide it a good, happy life. Studies have shown that leaving the TV or radio on can actually cause the animal more distress with the noise, not knowing what sounds are being projected and such sounds do not have the same calming effect provided by soothing music.
I am not speaking of rock and roll, hard rock or other hip hop type music. It is classical and harp music that has actually been proven to alleviate stress and illness in all types of animals, including your dog. You can find special soothing sounds in CD form, at the library or even purchase nice stress-relief music at Petsmart or Petco that will bring your dog a calmer demeanor. Piped in soothing types of music recordings have been used in animal shelters to create a serene environment for the otherwise distressed occupants.
When listening to the soothing harp or classical sounds, it has been noted that dogs will bark less and feel more relaxed. Many dogs suffer from separation anxiety and most owners feel helpless in helping their pet through this and many other anxieties. Providing soothing classical or harp music can help your dog overcome separation anxiety and help with gaining a more peaceful state of mind.
