Wallace says when she first gets there, her audience is a bit rowdy, but as she continues to play for them their curious eyes start to close.

She says it seems to be helping the dogs calm down and veterinarians say there are benefits of having dogs listen to music, like how it lowers their stress response to an environment like a shelter.
