"Some of the world's top pet experts spent many years creating special content," says Beke Lubeach, General Manager for DOGTV North America. "This is a TV channel that meets the specific attributes of a dog's sense of vision and hearing and supports their natural behavior patterns. This results in a confident, happy dog who is less likely to develop stress, separation anxiety or other problems associated with spending time alone."
DOGTV was designed to support a dogs natural behavior patterns and is divided into three content categories: relaxation, stimulation and exposure. Relaxation programs reduce stress with dedicated soothing music and visuals to relax a dog and make them feel at ease. Stimulation programs encourage movement and playfulness through the use of more engaging videos and sounds from dogs and other animals. Exposure videos include subjects that typically make a dog nervous, i.e. vacuums, car rides, and busy streets, which are introduced gradually to acclimate dogs to these events.
Professor Nicholas Dodman, former Program Director of the Animal Behavior Department of Clinical Sciences at Tufts University says, "The concept of developing TV programming that is scientifically designed for dogs is a terrific idea and one that I firmly support." Dodman is part of a team of pet experts that played a role in developing DOGTV's programing. Others include Victoria Stilwell, one of the worlds most recognized and respected dog trainers and Warren Eckstein, pet psychologist, pet trainer and popular radio broadcaster.
