...and the same goes for pets

Following up on my previous post about using white noise-like nature sounds for keeping children relaxed and sleeping, you can apply a similar approach with household pets.

Just about every pet internet site recommends some kind of white noise to soothe and relax your puppy, and block out the sounds of things going bump in the night that can wake him suddenly.
