Psychoacoustics expert Joshua Leeds discusses research results on the impact of sound and music on the behavior of dogs.
We all know that dogs have exceptional hearing, but HOW they hear and WHAT they hear is a mystery to most of us. Psychoacoustics expert Joshua Leeds partnered with Veterinary Neurologist Dr. Susan Wagner to create a book and CD entitled “Through a Dog’s Ear – Using Sound to Improve the Health and Behavior of Your Canine Companion” after learning, through extensive research, that certain classical musical had a calming effect on dogs. In this fascinating conversation, Leeds talks about how dogs are affected by the sounds in your home and neighborhood and how their nervous systems are impacted by auditory stimulus.
