Calm Stress Behaviours

Species-Specific Music

Animals use sound as a natural tool to self-regulate their behaviour.

Research by Pet Acoustics Inc, found by modifying sound frequencies with music specific to each pet specie's hearing sensitivity, did trigger a change in animal behaviour to minimise stress, to feel safe and relax within their immediate surroundings. 
Our pets are constantly alert to sounds. They analyse volume and tone as a way to determine a appropriate behavioural response... either to Flee, Fight or as we would prefer, stay Calm. 
Pet Acoustics produced specially contoured music specific for Dogs, Cats, Horses, pet Birds hearing sensitivity. 
The music known as Pet Tunes, masks ultra high and sub low alert frequencies that pets can hear, into a comfortable listening zone for them to maintain a calm, relaxed, fear-free behavioural state.
Often, what our pets can hear is overlooked as a cause of animal stress.

Pet Species Hearing Sensitivity

The science behind Pet Tunes is a special process in which frequencies and decibel levels are digitally modified each pet specie’s hearing sensitivity. Our pets acute hearing measures up to 3 times more sensitive compared the human audible range.

Meaning our pet's ears register ultra high and sub low frequencies, we humans can't hear.  May be you've noticed dogs or cats suddenly become reactive to a distant noise, like an approaching thunderstorm well in advance of you realising a storm is approaching.

Pet Tunes: Species Specific Music  Cube

Pet Tunes Music cubes are colour coded, Dogs (Cobolt Blue), Cats (Citron Green), Birds (Silver Grey) Horses (Black) for easy identification of the species’ music.  Music composed for each pet specie is different music. It comes preloaded on a durable speaker device ready to play anywhere, at hone or wherever you take your pet. 

Small in size, durable metal construction, suitable for travel with long battery play time.

Janet Marlow: Pioneer of Species-Specific Music for Pets Well-Being

Janet Marlow, M.A., is the CEO of Pet Acoustics Inc. and a Sound Behaviourist who pioneered the science of species-specific music in 1997. Janet’s research into pets’ hearing sensitivity and how sound and music affect animal behaviour has contributed significantly to the welfare of animals around the world. As a leading voice in the Science of Animal Behaviour and Sound, Janet has undergone peer review and recognition of her clinical studies in veterinary science publications. These studies show the effectiveness of species-specific music in promoting behavioural balance and well-being in pet animals.

Besides her research, Janet Marlow is also an accomplished author, speaker, and consultant who works with organisations and veterinary practices to promote a greater understanding of this new field of animal sound behaviour.

  • Lori McClain Russak, Mananger
    Tommy Mourad, Head Trainer
  • Pet Acoustics
  • Janet Marlow, Sound Behaviourist
  • Study
  • Observe (12) German Shepards individually in high stress behavioural state before and after the music experience.
  • Results
  • 90% of the dogs released their states of stress within (5) minutes of listening to the music remaining in a state of calm and rest.

Music Calms Dogs & Owners in Training
  • 90-day study (2014)
  • The Good Dog Foundation
  • Heather White, Executive Trainer
  • Pet Acoustics
  • Janet Marlow, Sound Behaviourist
  • Study
  • Observe the effect of Pet Acoustic music on both pets and owners during training classes.
  • Results
  • 90% of canines displayed positive reactions as evidence d by their ability to focus on a task at hand with their owner.

Music Calms Horse Emotional State
  • Published 2015
  • Journal Of Equine Veterinary Science
  • Iwona Janczarek
    Anna Stachurska
  • Izabela Wilk
  • Witold Kedziersk
  • Pet Acoustics
  • Janet Marlow, Sound Behaviourist
  • Study
  • Determine the effect of music played in the stable, on the emotional state of race horses.
  • Results
  • The music positively impacted the emotional state and performance of treated horses compared to the control group. What was so remarkable was that the effect was noticeable throughout every activity. Janet Marlow. M.A. composer's Equine music was used in this study.
