Biography and Credentials

Most of you know me as a dog blogger and creator, some as an editor and writing mentor. However I had different passions earlier than writing about canine: music and sound.

I maintain bachelor’s and grasp’s levels in music (harpsichord efficiency) and a grasp’s diploma in engineering science (acoustics). My engineering grasp’s analysis was in lively noise management (here’s my thesis) and I authored an article about it that was revealed by a peer-reviewed journal.

I’ve lately been privileged to deliver my experience in music, sound, and acoustics to the canine coaching and conduct world. I assess the claims of sound-related merchandise and write academic articles on the physics of sound associated to canine. I’ve introduced two webinars on canine and sound: “Sound Selections” by the Science Dog Courses (webinar not at present accessible) and “Beethoven for Your Canine—Actually?” for the Lemonade Conference 2021.

It’s additionally a life ardour for me to “translate” technical and scientific info for the general public, and boy, have I discovered a necessity for this within the canine world. Ever since I noticed what number of sound-oriented merchandise there are for canine, and the way a lot misinformation is knocking about, I’ve been capable of deliver my passions collectively.

Having a Sound-Phobic Canine Modifications All the pieces

However I even have a distinct type of “credential.” I can’t ever write about canine and sound with out mentioning Zani. I used to be the guardian of a beloved, clinically sound-phobic canine, and know firsthand the heartbreaks that situation could cause. I nonetheless discover and alert at noises in her “scary” vary, despite the fact that she has been gone for 3 years now.

I consulted with veterinary behaviorist Dr. E’Lise Christensen of Conduct Vets, who made a life-changing distinction for Zani together with her prognosis and therapy. I will probably be without end grateful; Zani had been in disaster together with her phobia, anxiousness, and panic assaults. After Zani was secure, I carried out desensitization and counterconditioning for her phobia of beeps and whistles. This video shows her before and after treatment.

Zani is without doubt one of the massive causes I’m devoted to preventing misinformation about treating sound phobias and why I put out evidence-based info on canine, music, and sound.
