Ever wonder what your dog does when you’re not at home? Studies say experiencing increased levels of stress and anxiety may be top of the list, but music can help. Cue DOGTV, the subscription TV network for dogs ($4.99/month on DirecTV). The net, also available on Roku and some smart TVs, has teamed with Andrew Dost, a musician with the band Fun. to compose psychoacoustic music for its relaxation segments.

The music for these segments features repetitive electronic undertones and the prominent sounds of harps and pianos arranged at 50 to 70 BPM in a low octave. To add to the experience, the clips also include rolling visuals filmed in Yosemite, California.

Dost will donate all of the proceeds from his work with DOGTV to an animal shelter that takes in abandoned dogs.

“I love the idea of creating sounds and images intended for a non-human audience,” the Grammy-award winning musician said in a release describing the collaboration. “I approached this composition project differently than I would for human ears. I made sure the range of frequencies and instrumentation were tailored to a dog’s unique sense of hearing and kept things musically more level and linear.”

Watch a sample segment featuring Dost’s music in the video above. Sharing it with your pup is optional (though highly recommended).
