Family, Pets, Travel…Music My Pet.

As the summer travel season begins it's time to think of everything you need for that road trip.

Our pets are as much a part of our family as anyone else.  It’s no surprise then that we take our pets with us when we travel.  Whether it’s around the corner, a family vacation or a trip across country, we take our pets in our cars wherever we go!  We buckle our kids up.  We buckle ourselves up….but the family pet is usually free to roam.  Some have begun to address this problem with various pet restraint methods including pet carriers, restraint straps and other devices. 
I can remember when I was younger, while traveling to New York on the highway; quite often we saw cats bouncing around in other cars or dogs panting with their heads outside the window. I bet both the drivers and their pets wish they had Music My Pet!

Music My Pet to the rescue.  Many of our customers have told us (see our testimonial page) that they use Music My Pet when they take their pets with them for a ride in the car.  They report that their pets are much more relaxed and more likely to fall asleep instead of romping around in the back seat.  This makes for a safer ride for both you and your pet.  Pet owners can concentrate on driving without being distracted by restless pets. Music My Pet will be music to their ears and serenity to yours.

At Music My Pet we think, a calm pet is a safe pet!  Happy travels.

Letter from Buckingham Palace

Letter from Her Majesty's assistant (see below)

While we didn't receive any feedback from Queen Elizabeth II directly, it's nice to think that perhaps the Queen's dogs (Linnet, Monty, Willow, Holy Cider, Berry, Candy & Vulcan) are listening to Music My Pet as we blog.

Roll Over Beethoven! (Relaxing music for you and your pets by “Music My Pet”)

No “Baching” dogs here!  Just a bunch of puppies chillin’ to Chopin!

Check out the new holiday CD from and keep your pets mellow throughout the Holidays!  Be sure to check out their Classic Cuts edition, as well.
Produced by Tom Nazziola, performer on Disney’s  award winning Baby Einstein DVD/CD’s, “Classic Cuts” Music My Pet has been produced using all the sounds proven to calm dogs, cats and other household pets.

Play it when you leave the house, or whenever your pet needs to relax. It’s safe, natural and effective. It’s the perfect gift for your favorite pet – or pet owner!  (Sample tracks are available on their website.) Veterinarians, trainers, groomers, shelters, daycare facilities and dentists :) will benefit from playing these CD’s during business hours.

Thank you, Tom, for sharing this information and for producing a wonderful (and necessary) product!

“If you’re listening to something and it’s calming you, it’ll probably be calming to your pet,” says Tom Nazziola. “Pets respond similarly to humans in terms of music.” That thinking is the basis for 
Music My Pet, a series of two CDs curated by Nazziola that take the most soothing parts of classical songs and spin them into easy listening for cats and dogs.

“Being a composer, I know what music to look for,” Nazziola tells “I chose pieces that would achieve the [calming] effect, then edited them. There’s some classical music out there that can be agitating. So it’s not just a matter of throwing some classical music on for your pet, but [choosing] something relaxing.”

Nazziola, a pet lover who performed on Disney’s Baby Einstein series, tested his first CD, Classic Cuts ($13.99), on some furry listeners. “We gave copies out to people, and our engineer had his dog by his side the whole time he was mixing, so he could gage his reaction,” Nazziola says. “We tried to keep pets involved the whole way through.”

So far, the composer has received positive feedback from many pet owners, who’ve noticed the calming effects of Classic Cuts when taking their anxious animals for rides in the car, or before leaving them for work in the morning. He has distributed several to New York City shelters, too, to help soothe animals waiting for adoption.

The latest CD in the series, Holiday Treats ($11.99, visit to order both titles), was just released, and features quiet arrangements of favorites like We Wish You a Merry Christmas and O Holy Night. “It was a long process,” Nazziola says. “But it’s a nice departure from the classical thing. And something different for the owner to listen to, too.”


…and to all, a good night…
My two dogs that were actually listening to the CD when the photo was taken. Otherwise, they don't cuddle up like that.

Always pick up after your dogs!
