You might have played music for your dogs sometimes when they feel anxious. Now it appears things are gonna change a little bit. Inspired by a 2015 academic study revealed that audiobooks worked better than tunes to calm stressed-out pets, Audible teamed up with Cesar Millan, who has made a famous career of advising people on how to train and care for their dogs to launch Audible for Dogs, a new service designed to keep canines relaxed while their owners are away from home.

According to Millan's research at his Dog Psychology Center in Los Angeles, audiobooks are much more effective than music in relaxing dogs and reducing their stress, depression, and boredom at home. In his research, out of 100 puppy volunteers, 76 percent of dogs behaved in a more calm and relaxed manner after listening to the audiobooks over a four-week period.

"Dogs are social animals, so they need to engage with someone, and the purpose of Audible for Dogs is to make dogs feel there is someone with them," Millan said in a statement. "The person performing the audiobook is actually keeping your dog calm and taking the dog to a resting state, acting as an extension of you."

You can start with the free Cesar Millan's Guide to Audiobooks for Dogs. Other dog-focused audiobook titles are including Born a Crime by Trevor Noah, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein and A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron. Each story features a video introduction by Millan, in which he explains why the book is suited for doggy ears.
