Through a Dog’s Ear has an illustrative past. In 2003, sound researcher Joshua Leeds was approached by pianist, Lisa Spector. In addition to her Juilliard training and award-winning musicianship, she was also an avid dog lover and puppy trainer for Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Her request of Joshua Leeds was simple: “Can you produce a calming CD for dogs?”

Leeds, a music producer of psychoacoustically-designed soundtracks for people, agreed to research previous studies about music and animals. Based on those findings, Leeds and Spector found a recording studio with a very big Steinway piano, and 4-hours of bio-acoustically re-arranged classical music was recorded. Shortly thereafter, research by veterinary neurologist Dr. Susan Wagner began. The evidence-based results of this research became the foundation of a 2007 book by Leeds and Wagner, entitled Through A Dog’s Ear: Using Sound to Improve the Health and Behavior of Your Canine Companion.

Coinciding with the publishing of the book, the first two recordings of the Through a Dog’s Ear series were released by Sounds True, Music to Calm Your Canine Companion, Vol. 1 and Driving Edition. In the following years, another 12-hours of recordings were added to the Through a Dog’s Ear library, as well as 5 recordings specifically engineered for cats, entitled Through a Cat’s Ear. Additionally, world-renown trainer Victoria Stilwell collaborated with Through a Dog’s Ear to create the Canine Noise Phobia Series (Thunderstorms, Fireworks, City Sounds), as well as the highly-popular training programs, Separation Anxiety and Aggression.

Through-a-Dogs-Ear-Music-to-Comfort-Your-Elderly-Canine-Vol-1 In 2013, Through a Dog’s Ear added portable speakers to enhance pet-centric auditory environments that have successfully evolved to the Ruff ‘n Ready series.

In 2016, the Through a Dog’s/Cat’s Ear brand was included into the iCalmPet brand.

In 2019, after illuminating research from Scotland focusing on dog’s preference to reggae music as well as classical music, iCalmDog Reggae was added to the Through a Dog’s Ear catalog.

Through a Dog’s/Cat’s Ear recordings are available in multiple formats (downloads, streaming, CDs, and MicroSD Cards). In this multi-decade journey, the Through a Dog’s/Cat’s Ear catalog remains at the forefront of innovative, effective music for the abatement of canine and feline anxiety.

Joshua Leeds continues to serve as iCalmPet’s CEO.
