Thank you, It was just what I expected. Had a little trouble with the download (I knew it was my fault) and called for help and all was solved in 5 minutes.

Our foster dog relaxed almost immediately after I started playing this recording. Before that, she was so anxious, she just stood all day until she was too tired. We combined it with a few other things, but it definitely helped calm her down.

My only suggestion is to provide a receipt for purchases.

This music calmed my dog IMMEDIATELY. The added bonus is that it calms me also. Thunder storms, fireworks and noisy neighbors in the upstairs apartment are now tolerated when we listen to "Through A Dog's Ear".

My Bichon settled right down during a thunder and wind storm where normally, he would be pacing the house and shaking like crazy!! I have ordered 2 more and also the "Thundervest" Txs. D Nail

I thought this was (probably) dumb. But I bought this one for a hyper dog that had leg surgery, and who has to stay in a crate for several weeks. I play it at night to let him know it is time to start calming down and nothing else exciting will be happening today. It works and seems to relax him. It is beautiful to me too. I'm going to order a couple more so there is a little variety.

This calms me down because of its slow rhythms. My dog seems to like it too.

We put this on every time we go out in the evening and all I can say is that the dogs are far more tranquil than they used to be when we return home!
I do wonder if the same sounds every time might be very boring - but I suppose the thing to do is gradually build up a dog library of music !

Our dog is fascinated and visibly calmed by this recording. I've now made an iPod playlist which repeats the recording six times over (that's 5-plus hours), and leave it playing through speakers when we leave the house. No more doggie peeing or panic! Thank you!

The item was great not only do the dogs seem more relaxed but also the whole family. When we have to leave them home alone it is so much nicer to feel that we are giving them something special. The music goes on, they are given a treat and we wish them farewell and they seem to like it now.

I was skeptical, but as I type my very hyper and noisy Manchester terrier is sleeping peacefully with 'his music' on. It has made a huge difference in settling him when I go out and keeping him from barking at every slight noise. I love this item.

This CD worked wonderfully. It calmed my dog and also another dog that I was taking care of in my home. Within minutes of playing the CD both dogs were napping!

My two dogs and I enjoy the music very much. When I played it the first time, they got in their beds and relaxed. It calms us all.

My friends Ridgeback who is terrified of Thunderstorms now no longer needs drugds to cope with them. Through a Dog's Ear and a homeopathic remedy are all he needs and he goes and sits in front of the speaker like he knows it helps him.

This CD is fantastic. It really works well. I use it in the evenings to calm my dogs down, just leave it on a loop and it plays all night. If I don't turn it off right away in the morning it puts me to sleep while I am on my computer. It is backed by real trials and research and it works.

I just listened to the preview clip on the website and am ordering this CD right now!

My four dogs are disturbed by thunder and fireworks, but hey!, I'm ordering this for me, too, to play continuously through the night to overcome my sleeplessness.

I was amazed by this CD. We purchased it because my friend's rescue greyhound has seperation anxiety, her pitbull barks at anyone passing by on the street, and my greyhounds are terrified of either storms or fireworks. It absolutely worked to calm each of them in all of these situations. They just pass out on the couch, on the floor, wherever, whenever this CD is played. What a God send for them so they won't be so afraid.

This CD really works. We tried it on my friend's 7 month old American Eskimo puppy, a loving but easily excitable dog. He calmed immediately, noticeably, repeatedly. Excellent CD.

It works!.. My little terrior/dachshund
mix laid down and shut her eyes just on the preview/sample music. Next I will try on my sheppard.
Great CD - love the soothing sounds.
Not bad for two-leggeds either.

My dogs love, it realy does calm them; therefore I love it, too. I have a boarding kennel and so far the dogs that have had to listen, seem to stay calmer.
Now all I need to do is get another CD player, since mine quit on me.

It even calms me down -which makes me think about how this works: a calm boss calms dog or the other way around? Either way; it works!

What a pain to download. Each song has to be downloaded individually. It would not work on my iPad,so I downloaded it to PC,where it went to quicktime, but not iTunes. Have no idea how to get it to iTunes so I can put it on the iPad.Have already wasted more than several hours trying to get this to work. The music is nothing special,just typical classical that I should have just went to the libray, checked out and burned to hard drive. If you do buy, I suggest getting the CD rather than download.
