Research shows special arrangements of classical music has a soothing impact on dogs. There are times when it is appropriate to use recordings that are quite slow and simple, designed to deeply relax your dog when she is alone. (Our Calm Your Canine series does just that.) However, when you’re also at home, you want music that is going to keep your pooch settled, yet keep you from snoozing, too!
Human-Animal Bond is sensory enrichment for dogs and their people. The music has the tone, tempo, and patterns necessary to gently stimulate the human brain while keeping two- and four-legged heart rates in a relaxed state. The classical selections are specially arranged for a combination of instruments (cello, english horn, oboe, and piano). Sometimes these orchestrations are solo, other times in duo or trio. This rich tapestry of sound facilities a state of awakened awareness in people––leading to creativity and/or productivity––while simultaneously providing a canine relaxation response in your dog. Herein, sophisticated sound therapy meets canine behavioral training.
The American Veterinary Medical Association defines the human-animal bond as, “A mutually beneficial and dynamic relationship between people and animals this is influenced by behaviors that are essential to the health and well-being of both. This includes, but is not limited to, emotional, psychological, and physical interactions of people, animals, and the environment.”
With Human-Animal Bond, we created a soundtrack for dogs hanging out with their people, in their space together.
Performed by The Apollo Chamber Ensemble (Piano, Cello, Oboe, English Horn), featuring Lisa Spector, pianist. Produced by Joshua Leeds.
