Music can soothe the savage beast-including your dog! Millions of dog guardians have grappled with behavior problems caused by their dog's anxiety - from fits of barking when their spaniel is left home alone to the nervous whimpering of their collie during a thunderstorm. Now, psychoacoustic expert Joshua Leeds joins concert pianist Lisa Spector to bring you Through a Dog's Ear, the first CD in a new series of music clinically demonstrated to calm canine listeners.
Studies show these solo piano classical arrangements reduced anxiety behavior and induced calmness in 70% of dogs in shelters or kennels and 85% of dogs in households. What's the secret? Thanks to their breakthrough research, conducted with veterinary neurologist Susan Wagner, Leeds and Spector have developed a unique understanding of how the canine nervous system responds to sound. Using that insight, they have created music shown to be twice as effective as conventional classical selections for soothing dogs. Through a Dog's Ear brings you timeless music that you can enjoy with your furry companion and, most importantly, will help your "best friend" live a happier and healthier life.
