Noise For Pets While You're Gone

You may be tempted to leave on the radio, stereo, or television when your dog is home alone. This is not necessarily a bad idea, but you want to make sure that the resulting sounds are going to reduce your pup’s anxiety, rather than make things worse. In the book Through a Dog’s Ear (Sounds True, 2008), authors Joshua Leeds and Susan Wagner talk about using sound to improve the health and behavior of dogs.

In most cases, people hope to help the animal not feel too lonely while they’re gone, or they may wish to provide some form of stimulation during long hours of isolation. These are good intentions, however, there are right and wrong ways to do this. Get tips in the article.
