Music is a universal source of enjoyment and relaxation that is known to transcend the boundaries of class, culture and language. According to a number of recent studies, the effect of music also transcends the boundary of species. Researchers have found that a dog’s mood can actually respond to music similarly to how a person’s can.
It is especially noteworthy that playing soothing music for dogs relaxes them.
Many dogs suffer from stress and anxiety caused by all of the noise that comes from living in modern society. The sounds of television, radios and cars that they’re exposed to on a daily basis can be very jarring for them. These noises are a far cry from the calm sounds of nature that their ears are attuned to.
Like people, some of them also just have very tightly wound personalities. Other dogs become very anxious when left home alone. Exposing them to calmer, more relaxing sounds such as the music found on Pupsnap can be greatly beneficial to their health and temperament.
This isn’t a new concept. Traditionally, many cultures have used classical music for this very purpose. Harp music in particular has been used as a cure for all kinds of animal ailments. With this in mind, the album Chill Dog was specially created by professional harpist Marcia Dickstein and produced by Grammy Award-winning engineer Frederick Vogler for the purpose of calming your best friend. It features eleven high-quality tracks of soothing music for dogs. Some people even report that it helps to keep themselves relaxed.
In today’s society, it important to take an occasional break from all of the stress, noise and chaos that is out there. This is as true for people as it is for dogs.
Here at Pupsnap, our goal is to help you and your dog on your journey to find serenity.
