Dog Gone Calm: The Benefits of Canine Sound Therapy for Both Ends of the Leash

with Lisa Spector
Länge: 34:46
Happy New Year everyone! This is Krista with Episode #167 on the Wag Out Loud pawdcast. Canine Cognitive Dysfunction, or CCD, is the medical term for age related dog dementia. And it is a progressive disease that is more common than you might think. And studies show that about 50% of dogs over the age of 11 display at least one sign of CCD. And for dogs 15 to 16 years of age, the prevalence goes up to 68%. Now, it's a difficult process to watch a beloved dog go through, and many dogs with CCD lose all pleasure in their life, so they no longer respond to their own name. They stare at walls, they don't engage socially, they urinate inside, won't eat, don't perk up. So there are things that can be done to slow the progression and the key is to keep an eye out for the symptoms. And the sooner you act, the better the outcome and it can be as simple as a change in diet, the addition of certain supplements, bodywork, light, exercise, and of course enrichment activities. Last but not least, play your part with lots of patience and affection. You know time with our pups is limited, so savor every minute with them.

Hello dog lovers and thanks so much for tuning in to the Wag Out Loud pawdcast. I am super excited to have the Pet Calming Maestro Lisa Spector with us today.

And I want you to make sure that your pups are around for this segment because Lisa is going to be playing some live music samples that your dog will for sure enjoy. So Lisa, thank you. Thank you for being with us today.
Thank you so much, Krista. It's an honor to be here.
Well, we're gonna have some fun. So before we get into it, you've got a lot of credentials, so I need for you to introduce yourself and share. How did you come to be the Pet Calming Maestro?
Well, in 2017 NPR called me the Pet Calming Maestro and I decided to stick with that. I joke in my podcast, that my Juilliard degree has gone to the dogs, and I couldn't be more thrilled. I did not plan to be playing concerts and make recordings for dogs when I went to Julliard, but sometimes the best things in life happen by seemingly accident. My biggest passions are dogs and music. And they just came together. Way back in 2003 when I was a volunteer puppy raiser for Guide Dogs for the Blind and professionally, I owned a music school. And I started wanting to learn about different prescriptions of music that would calm my four year olds, a wild class of four year olds, and they'd come in happy and screaming and I needed to get their attention. So I started exploring different kinds of music. And in the process, I found music that helped calm and focus them in 30 seconds flat. And I looked over to my I was volunteer puppy raiser for Guide Dogs for the Blind. And I looked over to my four month old puppy and he was snoozing in no time. And I thought I am onto something. And that's how it all began.
That is so cool. Well, another thing that people need to know is that you are the only classical pianist

The Wag Out Loud pawdcast started as a passion project that would help all of us to be the BEST advocates for our dogs’ health and wellness. After many amazing guests, intriguing topics and incredible feedback, the WOL pawdcast is hitting a nerve with dog lovers all over the world.
Why is it that over 50% of our dogs are getting cancer? I believe it is because of the extreme toxic load that are dogs are taking on from not only their poor diets, but from their environment as well. We can do so much better for our dogs, but first we need to be educated on how to make the right choices for our dogs, to help them lead longer and healthier lives.
Our short and succinct episodes (about 30 mins each) feature experts in the fields of canine health, nutrition, and wellness as well as recommendations about products and services that I've used, know, like and trust and have found to enhance the lives of dogs.
My name is Krista and I am the host of the WOL pawdcast. After receiving my certification in canine nutrition and noticing that most dogs are getting sicker and living shorter lives, I have become obsessed with bringing experts and dog enthusiasts together in committed community. Together we can learn about the most updated science, treatments, protocols and products that will benefit both the mental and physical health of our pups. I continue to learn something every single day.
This show mostly features topics and opinions from those in the holistic and integrative veterinary health industry. We address things like dental health, over vaccination, nutrition, benefits of feeding raw, gut health and the immune system, common canine diseases, aging issues, behavioral issues, cognition and so much more.
You love your dog, right? And you want to provide them with the best life possible. Let’s learn together. No matter where you live, your financial status, how many dogs you have, if they are a pure breed or mixed, we have something for every dog parent on the planet. Dogs are such amazing creatures and are a part of our families. As research continues, we are learning more and more about how they enhance our lives. It’s time to give back all of the unconditional love that our dogs show us. They are here to teach us so many things…we just need to know how to listen.
Nothing and I mean nothing, in the dog industry is regulated. That includes food, treats, supplements or the manufacturing of dog products. It really is like the wild, wild west and we have to do our own research on products, ingredients and materials. We can’t be fooled by false marketing claims.
