TV Shows Made Just For Your Dog

Dog: The next couch potato.

A new television network called DOGTV has come up with the solution to your dog’s most common woes of “there’s nothing on TV” by providing canine-friendly programming.

Some of us (including myself) leave the TV or radio on for our pets while we’re gone so that they have some background noise and hopefully feel a little less lonely. DOGTV is targeted for pet owners just like me (and you, if your pets are the TV-watching kind).

DOGTV was designed specifically for dogs in all aspects including audio cues, soundtracks, colors, and camera angles. According to their website, the programming “helps stimulate, entertain, relax and habituate dogs with shows that expose them to arious movements, sounds, objects, experiences and behavior patterns, all from a dog’s point of view.”

The programming launched exclusively in the San Diego area with plans to expand nationwide in the near future. Lucky dogs in San Diego can watch it on channel 2635 on Cox or channel 148 on Time Warner.

What do you think, would you let your dog tune in to DOGTV?

    That is pretty funny, but I’m not sure my dog would sit and watch that. It’s not lively enough. I think my dogs would want more action in their television programming. haha
