Score one for the dogs.

DogTV, the 2-year-old television network for dogs, asked Grammy-winning musician Andrew Dost of the pop-rock band fun. to write some psychoacoustic music for the network.

The unnamed result, nearly four minutes of harp, piano and repetitive electronic undertones, debuted Monday during a relaxation segment.

Dost says he loved creating sounds for a non-human audience and kept the music level and linear.

The music accompanies video recorded in Yosemite and together are designed to reduce the stress and anxiety dogs experience when they are home alone.

Dost is the first Grammy winner to work with DogTV and he will donate all proceeds for his work to A Rejoyceful Animal Rescue, a shelter in his hometown of Detroit.
