DirectTV Offers DogTV — TV For Your Dog [VIDEO]
The average person in the U.S. spends approximately five hours a day watching television. We as a nation love TV. We also love our dogs.
As pet owners, we know our furry friends wouldn’t choose to watch the same things we do. Your dog may spend a lot of time in front of the TV but rarely watch what you have on.
The folks behind the channel DogTV aim to change that. They’ve developed a new channel to cater to dogs. DogTV isn’t a channel about dogs — it’s for dogs.
Many dog owners already leave the tube on for their pets when they go out, but until now, there’s never been programming custom-made to keep our dogs company. Airing 24 hours a day, DogTV will show short clips of canines in a variety of situations — chasing each other, riding in the car with their owners, napping and being visited by the mailman. There will even be animated sequences of bats flying at the screen. DogTV is trying to provide your four-legged friends with relaxation and stimulation for that portion of the day when you’re not around to spend time with your dog.
DogTV is available to DirectTV customers. Check with your provider to see when or if they will offer DogTV.
