Are you a dog owner who doesn’t have the luxury of bringing your pet to work? Do you feel bad when you have to leave your pup alone all day? There may be a way to ease your guilt.
You may have heard of the “Cartoon Network” for kids, but have you heard about “Dog TV”? Dog TV has unique programs designed to appeal to dogs, and dogs alone.
The first all-dog programming channel is available on Comcast, DIRECTV, RCN, Apple TV, Chromecast, Amazon FireTV, Roku, and as an iOS and Android app. Dog TV features well-researched content suited to engage your pet and help them stay calm.
Sounds good, right? After all, the average American dog spends 6 hours alone a day. Dog TV has created entertainment to fill those empty hours, testing its “shows” on dog focus groups and doing three years of expert-driven research to come up with three programming groups: relaxation, exposure and stimulation.
Relaxation is about keeping your four-legged friend calm and content, filling their time at home with the soothing images and sounds which can help with separation anxiety.
Stimulation is designed to engage your pet, getting their brain working and their feet moving. With this distraction, dogs are less likely to be destructive due to boredom or have pent-up energy when you return home.
Exposure is filled with content that allows your dog to be gradually introduced to new things that might make them uncomfortable with immediate immersion in real life. This includes small children, busy city streets and the sounds of several other dogs.
Dog TV was created with dogs in mind, not humans. The content is not for human entertainment. The programs are even color corrected to suit a dog’s vision.
Shelters are thrilled with Dog TV because it provides a way to keep their dogs calm and engaged.
You can bring this all-dog-programming channel to your pup for just $5 a month; visit DogTV to learn more.
