Many of us pet owners, more specifically, dog owners, have to deal with the anxiety issues that trouble our 4-legged companions. Well my friends, courtesy of Dogster and the composers, there is now a cd listing at #19 on Billboard, that may help.
Dogs these days often suffer from various forms of anxiety such as thunderstorm phobias, separation anxiety, compulsive digging or chewing…and a lot of it can be cause by stress. But where does this stress come from? Well yes it can be linked to a lack of exercise, or perhaps even obesity, but there is a lot of stress, believe it or not cause by noise. Dogs have a very different capacity of hearing than us humans, and when it comes down to the nitty gritty, clearly some music or noise that we might enjoy, could be causing them stress.
Lisa Spector is an award winning pianist who discovered her classical tunes had a very calming effect on her fido. When she brought this up to sound researcher Joshua Lee, and the two of them began creating music for dogs.
The album released is a series of songs on the Piano, and it has been tested many a times. Your dog might fall asleep, but calm down, and potentially lay down-guaranteed.
In other news, something I forgot to add to my post yesterday about the Westminster, for those of you who watched it, you may have noticed a lack of the previous year’s adopt-a-dog commercial by Purina. This year, the Westminster decided featuring pampered, happy pets would be a better way to promote the celebration of dog ownership, since that is the essence of their show.
My personal favorites were those by Subaru, which are very well done and funny. Here are links to two of my favorite ones
Both feature the same dogs, but different adventures. Any dog lover is sure to approve.
Have a Happy Thursday!
Have you noticed that your dog enjoys different music?
