Lots of people wish for a dog’s life, but longtime pet owners know that pups get anxious, too. When humans get stressed, we can binge a few of our favorite shows to relax — and now dogs have that option too.
DogTV is exactly what you think it is — and more. Yes, it’s a streaming channel where all the content is geared to get your dog’s attention. But it also can help them shake those doggie blues. A lifetime subscription is on sale for just $149.99 (regularly $838).
DogTV: The best shows for man’s best friend
A lot of science goes into the shows that play 24 hours, seven days a week on this service, which you can stream from your computer or television. As you might expect, they feature a lot of dogs doing what dogs do, and not a firework in sight.
But it’s really the way DogTV shows look and sound that sets them apart from nonstop Lassie reruns. The sounds are carefully modulated to perk up your pup’s ears without alarming them, with calming frequencies most of the day and some uptempo moments that will encourage them to get a little exercise in.
Doggie therapy on demand
The first thing humans will notice about DogTV, though, is the color palette. That’s also calibrated to suit the way a dog sees the world, with more vibrant hues that compensate for their muted sense of color vision.
All this programming was developed in cooperation with pet experts and researchers to help dogs stay calm and slowly acclimate to the sounds of the outside world. It’s a great way for a man’s best friend to feel more at home when that best friend can’t be around.
Right now, you can get a lifetime subscription to DogTV for the best price on the web: $149.99 (regularly $838).
