If you thought sharing the TV remote control with your significant other, was enough-well think again because it looks like you might be sharing it with another member of the house, and yes we are talking about your four-legged companion! On August 1, DOGTV will be launching nationwide on Direct TV! That's right for a steal of a deal of $4.99/month fido will be able to tap into HIS own doggy entertainment channel. Now don't break out fido's Thundershirt because you may not be a subscriber to DirectTV, you can select a monthly bundle online! You can choose from a monthly service to a 12 month subscription package. DOGTV is said to help stimulate, entertain, relax & habituate your pup with a variety of shows. The visual content has been modified to be compatible with a dogs eyesight, since dogs are colorblind, "they can only see blue & yellow, they can't see red & green like humans do" says, DOGTV's CEO Gilad Nuemann, that is why DOGTV accentuates certain colors with their programming so fido can actually see what's on the screen.
We all know that nowadays we are constantly on the go and sometimes poor fido is left at home all alone with nothing to do, so why not leave him on the couch watching his channel? Well, there are mixed feelings about this, because with the growing epidemic of obesity with people and also dogs, its giving dog owners and their dogs another reason to stay home and be a couch potato. We all know the importance of healthy living and fitness and what a major importance it is to stay active. From our take we think DOGTV is a cool, fun go-to if you are leaving your pup to go to the grocery store or can't take him along for whatever reason, because them watching DOGTV in the comfort of their home is a WAY BETTER solution than to leave them in a car for a long period of time, which is a no, no- but once your home with him you should definitely turn off the tube and go for a long walk to stretch your legs and keep the WHOLE family active!
