Music soothes the soul — and not just for you but also for your furry friend. Many animal rescue groups and shelters and pet owners around the world play music to help calm their pets and create a soothing environment for them.
Laurel Canyon Animal Company and Dr. Kim Ogden (an animal communicator) teamed up together to create a “Songs to Make Dogs Happy” CD that will make your dog tap his paws. To determine the songs on the CD, Dr. Ogden selected over 200 dogs to be in canine focus groups (do you think they got paid?) to determine what songs would be appropriate and rehabilitative for dogs. One vet has said that playing the CD aided his dog’s recovery and created a calming environment for him while he healed. Music is also supposed to help with separation anxiety and reduce stress when traveling. Just make sure your dog doesn’t play his music too loud so he won’t wake up the neighbors.
