By Lisa Spector, Canine Music Expert, Juilliard Graduate, and co-founder of Through a Dog’s Ear.
I am a devout dog lover. First thing every morning, I write on an index card, “By combining my passion for music with my love of dogs, I improve the lives of dogs and people worldwide.” It is a statement I am deeply grateful to write and one that guides my daily decisions. It manifests itself in Through a Dog’s Ear, the first music clinically demonstrated to calm the canine nervous system.
As a socially conscious company, we understand the importance of giving back to our communities. Therefore, we are always looking for opportunities to benefit shelters and rescue organizations. Research shows that the consideration of the sensory environment, be it in a shelter or your home, is critical to the long-term health of our animals. Humans can do yoga, drink green tea, and have other stress relief strategies at hand. Dogs and cats don’t have access to relaxation or anti-anxiety techniques.
It never ceases to amaze me how passionate Care2 members are about helping animals in need. Personally, I get inspired to do more by reading your comments and hearing your stories. And I love it when one person really thinks outside of the box and makes a difference in the lives of pets in need because of their creative actions.
