Review

Interspersed with heartwarming stories of how sound therapy has helped other animals, Through a Dog's Ear will help your canine to a relaxed life. -- animal wellness, April/May 2008

From the Publisher

"Through a Dog's Ear opens a new world of harmony for our devoted companions... and helps us understand our responses to sound, stimulation and music for the creation of a healthier environment for dogs and their human family."- Don Campbell, author of The Mozart Effect and The Harmony of Health.

"The human is not the only species to enjoy and derive many health-benefits from music, as Through a Dog's Ear documents. Thanks to this book there is yet another dimension of auditory appreciation and communion that we can share with our dogs."- Dr. Michael W Fox, DVM, syndicated columnist and author of Dog Body, Dog Mind.

"Music therapy for animals and creating healing soundscapes for the home and veterinary clinic is long overdue. I cherish this work as a harbinger of the deepening awareness on the part of humans about the creatures with whom we share our lives."- Narda G. Robinson, DO, DVM, MS, FAAMA, Colorado State University, College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences

"This book and cd are music to my ears! I have envisioned a healthier sound environment for animals for years as part of an integrative health care approach for our kindred spirits."- Allen M. Schoen, MS, DVM, author, Kindred Spirits and Love, Miracles, and Animal Healing.

"I highly recommend this book and CD to anyone living with a dog with stress/anxiety problems. It provides a calming energy to dogs in homes, shelters and boarding kennels."- April Frost, author of Beyond Obedience.

"This book shows the impact of our over-stimulated world on both humans and our dogs, and gives us the tools we need to help lower the decibels, make change, and create healing." - Carol Komitor, Founder of Healing Touch for Animals®

"Through a Dog's Ear gave me goosebumps as I was reading it because I could sense how important it was. Joshua Leeds, Susan Wagner, D.V.M., and their musical collaborator, Lisa Spector, have truly shed much-needed light on a whole new aspect of animal welfare. A must-read for all dog lovers!"- Karen Porreca, Library Director, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals

"This book and CD provides me with very important new tools to solve some of the most difficult problems that confront our canine companions."- Susan B. Fireman, Canine Behavior Consultant

"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

Customer Reviews

I also purchased the CD for the car.

And who knows, it might even calm the humans in the house, which will in turn make for a calmer dog as well.
Nicole Wilde
Therefore, when we've had to leave him home, we play this music and he DOES relax more.

Since adopting a rescued dog with separation anxiety, I have come to know a lot of the canine soothing strategies and music. This book is filled with fascinating information about how both dogs and humans respond to the sound in our environment. The CD Through a Dog's Ear is my favorite of the 10 or more canine soothing CDs I now own. Not only do the dogs seem to enjoy it, every person who has heard it has commented on how relaxing the music is. I rotate through my other canine soothing CDs, but this CD stays in the CD player all the time.

I recently adopted a dog who had a history of carsickness.
With this CD and a stack of towels in hand, we brought our dog home.
After one song she stopped panting, and soon she was settled down and never had a problem the whole way home. After several days of driving music she now gets willingly into the car instead of having to be lifted up. I play the dog music first and then switch over to my music after a few songs, and if Luna starts to pant I switch back.
This CD is working great for me and my dog. I recommend it!

After reading this book, and trying out the samples, I thought, "What's the harm in trying?" I proceeded to purchase the 3-disk set of calming CDs the authors sell on their website. They don't cure separation anxiety, but they are some of the most helpful tools in my toolbox.

The long story: I've got a 2 1/2 year old dog who came to us at 2 months with strong "clinginess" in his nature. In puppy classes, at 2-3 months old, he was the dog afraid of all the other dogs. We continued to work with him, taking classes, inviting friendly dogs to our home and taking him out to play with dogs of people we trust. He's now taken six 6-week dog classes of varying types (puppy, basic obedience, advanced manners, games/agility-type) in order to build his confidence and teach him and us, overall, how to communicate better. Our dog has developed into a well-adjusted member in the canine world. He has great dog-friend relations and is outgoing and inquisitive (though respectful) when greeting unknown dogs on our many hikes and outings. However, he continues to have an over-reliance on his humans. Leaving him alone in the house or cars causes him much anxiety (pacing, drooling, whining, barking, panting, "crying"). While following the program outlined in I'll be Home Soon: How to Prevent and Treat Separation Anxiety., I stumbled into "Through a Dog's Ear" and thought it would help. It has. I play the CDs regularly when we're home with our dog, a relaxed and calm situation. This helps him associate the music with feeling good emotionally. Therefore, when we've had to leave him home, we play this music and he DOES relax more. It's not a cure. But our dog is a hard case.

I use this recording while I am grooming dogs. This is the first one I bought and got hooked. They come into my shop all excited or nervous as a new dog and I put on this music they start relaxing and ready to get on with the business of pampering. I even center myself and hum along with the music.

The sounds of FM radio created a level of distraction for my dog with separation anxiety. Then I changed to the wonderful CD "Through a Dog's Ear "and I find the music has sent my dogs to a calm relaxing state. When I come home I leave it on for hours. Listening to the music while they are home with me helps me to know that when I am gone they are peaceful.
I look forward to next next volumes

Whether you follow a holistic approach to health for your canine companion or not...this book and cd offer a practical new tool for us as sound aware guardians to make small modifications in our sound environment for improving the health and behavior of our canine companions.

Throughly referenced/cross-referenced, this book provides the reader with a solid foundation for the cd's development and application-specific tracts. So well written, I thought it best to share just a few of my favorite points by way of excertations;

"This not simply a dog book (or cd)...this is a dog and human book...there is no way to have a discussion about dog behavior or health without taking into account the role that humans play in a dogs life."

"Classicial music is easy on the nervous system because the form and patterns are easy to perceive. Yet, all classical music isn't the same. "

If you read the book, you will understand the use and practical application of the CD (which is included by way of a plastic sleeve permanently attached as the last page in the book). The first half of the CD are piano excerpts taken from their clinically tested, full version CD Through a Dog's Ear: Music to Calm Your Canine Companion, Volume 1 and is there to demonstrate how their arrangements soothes your canine. The second half of the CD also features excerpts take from another of their clinically tested, full version CDs Through a Dog's Ear Volume 1: Music for the Canine Household, meant to be enjoyed by both canine and human (uplifting). It is a starter CD afterall...
