The Complete Guide for the Pet Piano

Introduction to the Pet Piano

If you've marveled at the hidden talents of your furry friend, they're about to surprise you with a melody on the Pet Piano. 

I'm worried about the training process. Is it complicated?

Absolutely not! Trust in your pet's abilities, and let Pet Piano simplify the rest. It streamlines training by providing automatic positive reinforcement, turning what could be a demanding task into a delightful experience for both of you—effortless for cats and dogs.


Shaping — Think of it as nurturing your pet's natural talent. This method lets your pet discover how to hit the piano keys through their own curiosity. It's training at its finest, leveraging their innate behaviors to guide them gently towards musical mastery.

Modeling — This is the 'monkey see, monkey do' approach but for your pet. You take the lead by pressing the piano keys, showing them the cause and effect of their future performances. As they watch, they'll learn that the right notes bring out the treats — it's a live demonstration with a delicious finale!

Step 1: Priming Your Pet for the Piano

Before introducing your pet to the Pet Piano, let's align their mealtime enthusiasm with their music lessons. Here's how to get started:

Timing is Everything Your pet's appetite can be the perfect motivator for their piano training sessions. Schedule your Pet Piano playtime around their regular feeding hours. A hungry pet is a motivated learner — if their stomach is already full, they might give the keys a pass.

By syncing piano time with their mealtime, you're setting the stage for a successful and engaging learning experience.

Step 2: Introducing Piano and Treats

Now that your pet is primed with an appetite, it's time to demonstrate the magic of the Pet Piano.

Here’s the plan: Press a piano key so your pet can see the direct result: a treat is dispensed. This step may not prompt your pet to start playing right away, but it’s crucial for them to make the connection between the action and the reward.

As they observe the cause and effect, they’ll understand that the pressing of the piano is the key to treat time. Repeat this process until they become comfortable around the piano to reinforce the association and prepare them for the next stage of active participation.

Step 3: Encouraging Self-Discovery Through Shaping

Harness the power of shaping — guiding your pet's natural behavior toward the desired outcome — we move to the heart of their learning.

Here’s what to do: Place a treat on top of the piano, enticing your pet to step on the key to reach the treat. This action will produce a sound and simultaneously release a treat, helping your pet to understand that it's their own action causing this effect.

Continue this exercise, allowing your pet to explore and learn that by pressing the keys with their paws, they can control the treat dispensing. Repeat this step, ensuring they grasp that their direct interaction with the piano results in a delicious payoff.

Step 4: Automated Advancement with Training Mode

Engage the Learning Algorithm for Musical Mastery. With your pet acquainted with the piano keys, it's time to introduce the brilliance of the Pet Piano's automated training mode.

Here's the next step: Activate the training mode on the app, which employs a sophisticated algorithm to incrementally adjust the number of notes required for a treat to be dispensed.

This adaptive learning process seamlessly transitions from human-led demonstrations to a fully automated system, meticulously tuning the difficulty to match your pet's growing abilities.

As your pet progresses, the piano will cleverly guide them through an intuitive learning journey, culminating in the ability to play a complete melody. There's no need for further human intervention; the Pet Piano's training mode is designed to nurture your pet's talent, transforming playful paws into pianists over time.
