Developed and created by dog trainer and author, Nikki Moustaki and engineered and mastered by SoundScope Productions, "Dog Training Tracks: A Musical No-Bark Solution" is designed to reduce or eliminate alarm barkers by creating an alternate soundtrack for a dog's day. Each training track contains "overlays" and "underlays" chosen to both soothe an anxious dog and mask stimulating outside sounds.
"I chose 'the blues' as a genre concept for "The Blues for Buster" training soundtrack album because the blues is a down-tempo genre featuring moderate to low-pitched instrumentals that give a dog a sense of safety and security. High pitched sounds draw a dog's attention and often indicate upset, anxiety, fear, or insecurity in canine communication. Moderate and lower-pitched, non-threatening communication between dogs indicates normal activity and behavior in 'dog language.' The moderate tones throughout the Training Tracks is designed to soothe dogs and give them a pleasing soundtrack for their days alone while they wait for you to return.
When used correctly, "The Blues for Buster" will help to habituate your dog to experiencing his surroundings as mundane. Being calm and secure in an environment that doesn't change becomes a habit, eliminating undesired behaviors, such as alarm barking or separation anxiety. The blues sound varies from song to song, but also varies within songs, with licks, pauses, and fills that keep the sound interesting, but not overly stimulating to a dog's senses, the way outside noises are. The blues also features instruments that your dogs is used to hearing all day on the television, radio, and in the music you play at home. The modern dog is accustomed to these sounds and has learned to tune them out to a large degree. Most of the training tracks are not designed for active listening, but rather for passive reception. Besides, the blues is simply cool."
"Dog Training Tracks: The Blues for Buster" is great for:
- Dogs left home alone
