You’ve felt the energy of your latest cd purchase and now all you want to do is blast it through your house, screaming the lyrics at the top of your lungs. But what about your pooch? It might hurt his ears.

Trouble be gone! Pet Acoustics has just come out with a product to help ease your dog’s pain. According to their website, ‘My Pet Speaker transforms your personal music library into pet-friendly tunes that soothe and relax dogs, cats, horses, and their people.’

I don’t usually advertise products on my blog, but this device is just too interesting to pass up. We all know that our pet’s hearing is much more sensitive than our own. In most cases, a sound that your pet hears is a sound that the human ear may not even register. Here’s how the pet speakers work:

‘Designed to eliminate these unsettling frequencies, My Pet Speaker features an Omni directional speaker with a 4” drive unit and cone reflector which disburses the music in 360 degrees recreating how animals hear in nature. By producing limited frequencies and featuring a soft bass design for listening comfort, your pets will not be startled or disturbed by jarring volumes and piercing sounds that put them on alert. My Pet Speaker keeps these alarming frequencies within the comfort range of your pet’s hearing. This allows you to use your entire music library to fill you and your pets’ environment with a sense of calm and relaxation.’

Pretty cool, huh? Instead of blasting your music and listening to Fido shriek in pain (and you thinking it is cute that he wants to ‘sing along’) he can be soothed! Geez, what will people think of next? I swear, there’s a gadget for everything.
