We’ve all heard of Animal Planet. Now, there is a tv station just for dogs! Dog TV? Really? Do you think your dogs would watch the programming? Or better yet, keep them calm and relaxed when you aren’t home? DirectTV is offering a free 2 week trial the first 2 weeks of August 2013. I’m checking it out…
It is clear this channel is not for the human. After the first 30 seconds I wanted to change the channel. The program was a short clip of a woman petting her Dachshund, till he fell asleep. There was some relaxing music in the background. My dogs are already asleep, so it’s hard to judge whether or not it’s helping them relax 🙂
The second clip was of a woman petting a larger dog, telling him it’s okay and asking him to sit.
The third clip is of a woman riding a horse, then the horse drinking copious amounts of water. 🙂
I’m going to leave it on in the background as I work and see how this progresses.
After a couple hours of having this on in the background…I need to take a nap.
Here are a couple short clips to give you an idea of the programming:
There were a couple of programs that one of my dogs reacted to. One was a bouncing ball on the screen that made weird noises. The other was a couple of guys playing keep away from the dog on a beach.
Other than that…it’s been a pretty normal day of snoozing for my dogs.
I think it’s pretty genius of them to start the free trial the first two weeks of August. Why? Because this is when most kids are going back to school. Pet parents may be feeling a little guilty since their pets will be spending more time alone.
Is Dog TV just peace of mind for you? Or will your dogs react to it…in any way?
Give it a try and let me know how it goes. Channel 354 on DirectTV.
