DOGTV. If your dog loves to watch your favorite television programs with you, then he may appreciate DOGTV. DOGTV is the first network television channel that is designed specifically for dogs, and it has unique programs that have been created just for canines that spend time alone at home. The station has partnered with The Human Society of the United States to provide programming that stimulates dogs while exercising their visual and auditory skills. These shows can help alleviate the stress and anxiety that dogs often feel when their owners are gone, and they can also cause dogs to be more playful while their humans are gone. The next time your dog seems despondent when you leave the house, consider allowing him to tune in so he can cheer up! LINK.
