About

It is a compact device that plays super-soft sounds to create an atmosphere of deep relaxation for cats and dogs that helps PEACEFULLY calm them down FAST.

—Very Fast

The first Pet Relaxer prototype
The first Pet Relaxer prototype

—to help your dog or cat feel relaxed when you leave the house 

 —when they're "going wild" and you want them to calm down 

any time it's "time to relax" 

"(The Pet Relaxer) is amazing." —MaryAnn, guardian of Thurston and Lovey  

Super-peaceful sound, with—

 • A gentle pulse, like "a mother's heartbeat" 

 • Very calm, "tingly tones"like "a soft cozy blanket" 

 • Deep, comfortable vibrationslike "floating on a cloud" 

"I highly recommend the MowMow Pet Relaxer. It has a very soft sound. My cat Max really likes it a lot." —Sarah, owner of Max the Cat 

The real sonic science why the MowMow™ is so amazingly relaxing is the bio-musicological principle of entrainment. Simply put, entrainment is the “synchronization of an organism to an externally perceived rhythm.“ It occurs when a sound causes the breath, heart rate, and brain waves to naturally speed up or slow down.

MowMow™ also layers long, pure tones that are very soothing to pets. These smooth, extra-soft tones are based on mathematics found in nature and the golden ratio. 

In time for the holidaysDecember 2019.

The MowMow™ has been in full-time development for several months now. 

Now we have a plan and team in place ready to make it happen...

The New industrial design, ready for manufacturing. Pet-proof, and easy to use.
The New industrial design, ready for manufacturing. Pet-proof, and easy to use.

Recently we have teamed up an amazing group of people who want to help take the original Pet Relaxer idea to the next level.

Now we have a USA manufacturer ready to begin production on a new industrial design. It's been created by a world-class CAD designer and is manufacturer-ready. It has a pet-proof casing, high-quality surround bass sound, auto-shutoff modes, adjustable volume, USB charge capability and a simple, "anybody can figure it out" interface. Just push one button to turn it on and it works right away.

Thank you for your interest in the MowMow™ Pet Relaxer.

We need your help!

My name is Chris Spoltore and I am the creator of this project. 

I am a professional musician and inventor living in Los Angeles, CA. You might have heard my work if you are a fan of relaxation and meditation music. I have been studying sound for over 20 years, and specialize in relaxation and music therapy. I’ve published a book that explains how to tune instruments to sounds found in the stars and in nature. 

I also care about animals and their well-being.

This project has been an incredible journey that started several years ago. The idea was inspired because I wanted a way for my cat MowMow to feel comfortable when I would leave the house during the day.

So I designed a unique sound based on scientific research of music and animals. 

MowMow loved this sound immediately. It became a "big hit" around the house.

I eventually got the idea to take the sound and load it into a prototype speaker device, which I started calling the "Pet Relaxer."

I figured other cats and even dogs might like to try it out too. I began taking it around to see if any other pets would find it comforting like MowMow did.

I did not expect what happened next.

I found the reactions from other pets absolutely AMAZING.

Both cats and dogs seemed like they couldn't get enough of the Pet Relaxer.

I soon decided I wanted to make the Pet Relaxer available for everyone.

There should be an easy and peaceful way to relax animals!

Now I just need your help to make it a reality.

Every pledge brings it one step closer.

Thank you for backing and sharing this project.

 "Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened." —Anatole France
