I have a Mac Mini attached to a TV, so I can play stuff from my hard drive on the smart TV. I've noticed some audiobooks have a nice calming effect. We had two Siberian huskies rescues and after two years fostered another. She was pregnant. She was also the most psychologically damaged dog I've ever seen. Siberian huskies can survive a lot but 5 years in a crate, bred non-stop was too much for this little girl. She passed on some of her neurosis to her son. Our original two died of age-related causes and this severely depressed the Mom and her son. I started listening to my audiobooks on the TV and noticed they seemed calmed. They also love The Lord of the Rings movies. Usually, picking up my car keys can cause a meltdown. But now, I put on Lord of the Rings or an audiobook and they go into the living room and lie down. I've looked into the living room from outside and see them watching the movie! If it's and audiobook, they are sleeping. It's not all movies or audiobooks, some just don't work. My dogs have a large fenced yard they can access at will with a doggy door but when I'm gone they are inside listening or watching. No meltdown when I come inside either! If I forget to leave a device on, I am greeted with screaming howling scolding. I'm glad someone researched this.

for years. They really don't care much for the mystery/thriller genre which is my addiction, so I usually only listen to those with earbuds. They prefer pleasant, calm female voices as a rule, though I notice my Chloe seems to like Cesar Milan's voice, and my Oso used to perk up when he heard Barack Obama on the news. They had/have no use for music, I noticed, though really enjoy Gregorian chants, though not with instrumental background. I often play Alberto Turco Nova Schola Gregoriana's Gregorian Chant for Meditation when I want them to calm down (no, Pit Bulls aren't religious, and neither am I. The chants are just really calming). I already have some of Mr. Milan's suggested books for dogs (e.g., Trevor Noah's and Pride and Prejudice) and will now look at some of the others. I think this is a really cool thing for Cesar and Audible to do for us and our furry friends.
