MUSICAL CD FOR DOGS APPROVED BY DOGS
Songs To Make Dogs Happy
Featuring “Squeaky Deaky” (the “hit” song with dogs – as seen in USA Today). It's a great “call to action”.
Created by Skip Haynes and Dana Walden of the L.A. based Laurel Canyon Animal Company who utilized the talents and expertise of intuitive animal communicator Dr. Kim Ogden.
“We are animal lovers dedicated to building a bridge between humans and animals through music,’ says Haynes. “We create music exclusively about, for and with animals — dogs in particular. We are probably the only record label in the world that uses intuitive animal communicators to act as translators for the animals whenever we are able to involve them directly in the musical process.”
Over a period of eight months Dr. Ogden put together focus groups of dogs taken from over two hundred and fifty dogs nationwide – both shelter animals and pets. The music and lyrics for the CD were created based on the dog’s responses as translated by Dr. Ogden. The result is a CD that dogs love to listen to. It makes them happy.
