When we are gripped by tension and anxiety, we frantically look for ways to relax ourselves like listening to music or discussing our problems with others. But what about our canine friends? When they are under stress how do they cope with the situation? Since they cannot speak, they tend to behave weirdly under these circumstances and this sometimes puts the entire household in jeopardy. Right?
But this is a thing of the past now because 2 musical maestros, Joshua Leeds and Julliard trained pianist Lisa Spector and a world renowned veterinary neurologist Susan Wagner have collaborated to launch a book and music series that promise to improve canine health and behavior.
This one of its kind book and music series called Through a Dog’s Ear
consists of a 45-minute sample CD and 4 hour-long music CDs. The website stakes claim to the fact that the book and the music series have been developed keeping in mind the path breaking research by psychoacoustic expert Dr. Alfred Tomatis. Known as the ‘Einstein of the ear,’ he discovered the extraordinary powers of sound as a ‘nutrient for the nervous system.’
The book and the music series are a treasure trove of insightful information on the inner auditory lives of our friends with paws. It also provides really handy and useful tips on how to make the house comfortable for anxious dogs, how to use music as a mechanism to relax dogs, how to tackle sensory overload in dogs and also a 45-minute beginner’s CD of classical music psychoacoustically orchestrated to soothe both dogs and their owners.
However, after reading all this I know your curiosity regarding the components of the CDs has been adequately aroused.
So, here’s quick look.
- Volume 1- It consists of solo piano which aims at reducing tension.
- Volume 2- It comprises solo symphonies which reduce the heart rate with slow and soft rhythms.
- Driving Edition– It is meant for dogs which become anxious or which fall prey to motion sickness during journey.
- Music for the Canine Household– It consists of cello, oboe and English horn along with piano arrangements which breed peace and harmony all around.
So what are you waiting for? Hurry! Go and grab a CD of the series before they fly off the racks.
