Album Notes

Since dogs can hear sounds at higher frequencies than humans, their perception of music is much different than ours. They also have many more muscles in their ears, allowing them to adjust to hear pitches and vibrations in ways that we cannot. Given this amazing response to sound, it is no surprise that dogs also have discerning musical tastes…

I am a classically trained opera singer. My range is extensive, and I sing many different kinds of vocal exercises and songs. My dog does, too! I noticed that Baxter responds to certain exercises and vocal patterns. He gets so excited when I sing these passages that he joins in. If you listen closely, you can hear that he is trying to mimic the pitches. Baxter would be so happy to share his enthusiasm about the music he loves with your dog.

Opera for Dogs is a recording comprised of two sections. “Vocalise” has simple exercises that your dog will soon recognize and eventually sing along to. The other songs are relaxation pieces by some of Baxter’s favorite composers. I want to share this dreamy music with other dog lovers because I witness how it instantly soothes my often hyper terrier!

You can play the recording from beginning to end or create a playlist of your dog’s favorite tunes…..give him some time to get used to the sounds and soon enough he will be singing along as well!
