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. Psychoacoustic expert Joshua Leeds joins concert pianist Lisa Spector to bring you Through a Dog’s Ear, the first CD in a 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.

“My young dog was crying a lot when she first got home after being spayed. I played Calm your Canine Companion for her and the crying immediately stopped and she lied down and went to sleep.

“A dog came in that needed to be under our care for the day. He was barking incessantly while in his kennel. We put on Calm your Canine Companion and he very quickly stopped barking and remained quiet during the remainder of his stay.”

– Dr. Laurie McKinney, DVM, Half Moon Bay Vet Hospital,
Half Moon Bay, CA

“Before Track 1 was over, all (the dogs) had laid down. During Track 2, I could hear a pin drop. Every one of the dogs became calmer that day. I also found that the public walking through made comments regarding how calming and relaxing the music was. I think it made the shelter (or our section) feel more warm and inviting – not quite as sterile. It also helped to ease the public’s edge when entering the kennel area.”

– DH, Longmont Humane Society, Longmont, CO
