I wish we lived in San Diego, California where DOGTV is currently aired on cable television. There are plans for rolling it out to other cable providers but who knows if it will ever make it to New Zealand?
Since I use relaxation music in my massage practice, I know that dogs respond to certain cadences of music and it makes sense that they are visually stimulated by certain movements and shapes, too.
DOGTV offers special content for a dog’s sense of vision and hearing and aims to support a confident, happy dog, who’s less likely to develop stress, separation anxiety or other related problems. It seems a must for the home-alone dog, particularly the younger dogs who have energy to spare when you are not able to be home with them.
DOGTV has been recognised by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).
If you are not in San Diego, you can subscribe to a streaming online service with prices that start at US$9.99 per month. Make sure you understand the impact of this on any data caps you have with your internet provider.
Here’s a sample of DOGTV. Bring your dog over to the screen to watch!
