Pet Tunes uses sound repetitive rhythms and key notes designed to relax and calm your pet. If you pet has sleeping problems or anxiety problems or is even stressed during fireworks, you should try our music. It will calm your guinea pig, rabbit, dog, cat, hamster... in other words, any species!And sure enough, they have several songs intended for guinea pigs, such as this one:
But does it actually work? We started by checking the YouTube comments on their guinea pig music videos. Here's a sampling of them:
- "he fell asleep in my hands I carried him to his cage and when I closed it it made a sound and he woke up"
- "This was too relaxing for my Guinea pig ,caramel,She peed on me lol"
- "The moment the guinea pigs heard this song, their life was changed"
- "I played this to keep my Guinea pig quit and she didn't care about the music she just was chewing on my phone case!"
- "My guinea pig was hopping and jumping all over me while I was holding her. I started playing this and she just stopped, listened, and crawled into the blanket that was on my lap! She's currenly just cuddling up in the blanket and she actually just purred. She loves this! This music is working wonders for her!"
Apologies for the messy cage in this video. (We're about due for a cleaning! Humans, get on that ASAP!)
It was actually kind of relaxing. I was rattling my bars shortly before the video started, and after the music started, I just wanted to munch on pellets and sip water. I fell asleep after about 15 minutes. (Broccoli was already asleep.) So it was good at first. However, at about 30:58, they included some sort of horrible alarm noise that woke us both up and made us wheek in terror! Why would they include this? Is this a prank or a mistake?
Our conclusion is that PetTunes seems like a good idea in theory, but someone needs to test this out with actual pets before putting out songs like this.
