While we don’t all have the luxury of living in a quiet rural environment, there are many things we can do to improve our sonic environments for ourselves and our pets. The authors of Through a Dog’s Ear, Joshua Leeds and Dr. Susan Wagner, recommend taking a sonic inventory. Sit quietly for 30 minutes in your home and note all of the sounds you hear. It will help raise your awareness of all the sounds you take for granted and may even no longer notice. What is buzzing, beeping, and ringing? Are you able to lower the volume on those machines and appliances? Can your pets be in a separate room when loud machinery is turned on? Do you have two sound sources blasting at the same time in your home ~ perhaps a radio is playing in one room while a television blares in another? Definitely turn at least one off.
The simple sounds of Through a Dog’s Ear, music clinically tested to calm the canine nervous system, also helps contribute to a balanced sound environment, for pets and their humans.
