SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The results for the top U.S. cities streaming DOGTV in 2017 are in—and Los Angeles followed by New York lead the pack. For many pet parents, DOGTV, the world's first and only television network created specifically for dogs, is like an instant babysitter. Both entertaining and educational, DOGTV helps dogs combat boredom, stress, separation anxiety and hyperactivity when left alone at home. The most popular program? "Noise Phobia," which helps dogs overcome various fears of sounds they have such as door bells, vacuum cleaners, children and other dogs.
"We are pleased to see through our web viewership data for 2017 that pet parents all across the country are subscribing to DOGTV. California has three cities represented in our top 15 list of cities streaming DOGTV, but what's surprising is that there are a number of smaller towns with avid fans, such as Palisades Park, New Jersey and Chanhassen, Minnesota," says Gilad Neumann, CEO and Co-Founder, DOGTV. "We'd like to thank these top cities and others who use DOGTV to help enrich their dogs' lives. Dogs who stay home during an often long workday may experience boredom, loneliness and separation anxiety, and DOGTV is one service that can help dogs relax and enjoy their days."
The full top 15 list of cities streaming DOGTV can be viewed below:

- Clearwater, Fla.
- The Woodlands, Texas

DOGTV's visual and auditory content is scientifically designed with the world's leading pet experts and is based on more than 60 studies on dog behavior. The content focuses on three main themes: relaxation, which helps reduce separation anxiety; stimulation, which helps keep dogs alert and active; and exposure, which gently introduces foreign noises and scenarios that otherwise might be a phobia. Daily specials for dogs such as "Water Dogs," "Noise Phobia" and "Dogs in Cars" are available with new content slated for release later this year.
"Dogs are colorblind, seeing only blue and yellow but not green and red. In the video production process, DOGTV puts emphasis on certain colors so dogs are more attuned to what's on screen," said Professor Nicholas Dodman, Chief Scientist, DOGTV. "Dogs like watching video of other dogs in action, dog-human interactions, and environments they enjoy like fields, beaches and urban landscapes."
DOGTV recently launched on Comcast's Xfinity On Demand and is also available through DIRECTV, RCN, Apple TV, Chromecast, Amazon FireTV, Roku, and as an iOS and Android app.
DOGTV is the first television network for dogs. A trusted source of scientifically developed content for dogs, DOGTV programming is organized into relaxing, stimulating and exposure segments that work together to provide just the right balance for the daily routines of our beloved "stay-at-home" pups. DOGTV's revolutionary content is designed for a dog's visual, auditory and emotional sensibility. DOGTV is supported by Discovery Communications, and more information is available at dogtv.com.
