Even though I’ve been to Barkworld and wrote about the fabulous experience I had last year, this year, my mission is different. Recently, my performing career has gone to the dogs, literally.  And dogs are barking for more!

Combining my love of dogs with my music talent inspired the creation of Through a Dog’s Ear, music clinically demonstrated to calm the canine nervous system. Now, I’m combining my love of performing to a cross-species audience.

Recently, I started performing Canine Classical Concerts as fundraisers for non-profit animal organizations. I’m eager to take my show on the road, and I’m sure all of the fabulous speakers (including a keynote from Mashable’s Editorial Director, Matt Silverman) will help enlighten me in how to reach a larger audience, allowing me to raise more funds to help homeless pets. And, how could I miss hearing Victoria Stilwell speak? Her passion for helping dogs ignites enough fuel to keep me going all year!

While thousands of dogs have heard my recordings and have shown improved behavior with canine sound therapy, it’s time to share my music with them both live, in person dog, and via simulcast concerts from my living room. A fabulous expo like Barkworld is the perfect place to learn how to expand my outreach.

I love playing the piano for my own dogs, Sanchez and Gina, at home (as witnessed in the video below). And I’m now ready to invite the world into my living room. Since they won’t all fit, live simulcasts of my performances is a great way to increase my cross-species audience.  While donated recordings of Through a Dog’s Ear music has helped increase adoption rates in over 1,500 shelters worldwide, my live performances could help raise the funds to help shelters provide sound systems for the homeless dogs and cats.


Falling asleep already? While my music has been known to produce some zzzzzz’s from the dogs, I also have been known to play a lot of notes that help keep the humans awake and engaged.

Barkworld Expo is in Atlanta August 22-24. Here’s how you can help me get there… On Friday, July 12, share this blog in all of your social media circles, tweet it, pin it, share it with your Facebook friends and fans, add it to your Google+ circles, and ask your friends to do the same. Afterall,  friends don’t let friends stay home when they could be at Barkworld.
