Through a Dog's Ear

Lisa Spector, Through a Dog's Ear Co-Founder

Lisa Spector is a concert pianist, Juilliard graduate, and canine music expert. By combining her passion for music with her love of dogs, she co-created Through a Dog's Ear, the only music clinically demonstrated to relieve anxiety issues in dogs.

Following a howling succcess of a Canine Classical Concert at Cypress Inn in Carmel, Lisa now brings the event to her hometown of Half Moon Bay. 

As co-founder of Through a Dog’s Ear and the pianist on the music series, she has appeared on the CBS Early Show, Martha Stewart Living Radio, and Victoria Stilwell’s Positively podcast. In early 2012, Through a Dog’s Ear was featured on Good Morning America and their inaugural CD, Music to Calm your Canine Companion Vol. 1, reached Billboard’s Classical Top 20 Chart.

As a concert pianist, Lisa has won first prizes in Chopin competitions in New York and Los Angeles and has performed in China, Poland, Spain, France, Italy and throughout the U.S.

Spector heads the Through a Dog’s EarMusic in Shelters” program, a project inspired by her volunteer work in shelters. Her piano playing is currently played in over 1,500 shelters worldwide, where it is helping increase adoption rates. In addition to calming the dogs, it helps create a quieter atmosphere, encouraging visitors to stay longer and adoption rates to increase. The donated music is also sent home with adopters and their new forever dogs.

A former puppy raiser for Guide Dogs for the Blind, she shares her home and her heart in the San Francisco Bay Area with two “career change” dogs from Guide Dogs ~ Sanchez and Gina. Lisa and Gina can often be found at agility trials on weekends.
