Two Free CDs for Your Dogs
Your dogs can be Mozarts, too! Through a Dog’s Ear is a series of CDs that consist of instrumental piano compositions designed to calm dogs, and in many cases, reduce anxiety. Research has proven that classical music has a strong relaxing effect on shelter dogs, and calm dogs = adopted dogs. Through a Dog’s Ear has a shelter program that offers a two-CD set free to any animal shelter or rescue group! The only qualifying factors for the free CDs is that you be an animal shelter or have nonprofit status, and have five or more dogs for adoption. Other than that, you just need a system on which to play the music (such as a PA system) and voila! Your pooches will soon be little Beethovens and Mozarts! See the CD cover art here and click here to find out more about getting your free CDs so that you can fill your shelter with beautiful tunes for your pups – and best of all, help keep them soothed and ready for happy homes.
