Full Description

Your young puppy’s hearing and relationship to the sensory environment is extremely fragile—especially during weeks 7–12 when many puppies are brought into their new homes. A puppy’s greatest malleability is during this human socialization stage. In this phase, pups are also weaned from their mother and separated from littermates. This is a huge adjustment! During this critical period, it is important to safeguard a pup’s sensory environment.

In Calm Your Puppy, progressive frequency modulation accommodates a young dog’s highly alert sense of hearing. High frequencies have been gradually removed to not arouse a puppy’s excitable nervous system. Significant modulation also takes place in the mid and low range; sonic areas that have the greatest relaxing impact. Psychoacoustic techniques of resonance, entrainment, and pattern identification also create a gentle sound environment for masking unwanted noises. CYP becomes an auditory trigger to help your pup transition from playtime to people or sleep time.

When and How to Use this Recording

Depending on size and breed, puppyhood spans birth to 18 months.

  • Crating or puppy pen time

Play CYP at a very gentle volume. CYP doesn’t need to be played continuously. Times of silence are recommended.

The human/animal bonding time is one of the great rewards of having a canine companion. Puppyhood is the start of a 10–15 year relationship. Music and touch are a great combo and go a long way in creating sweetness between you and your new furry friend.

Note:For optimal frequency modulation effect, we recommend playing CYP on full spectrum speakers (not computer or tiny portables).
