The TV channel for dogs is the attempt, dedicated to dogs as viewers. For this helps dogs to feel less scared as a result of exterior sounds, by masking outside noise. The Channel is available on DirecTV Deals and also on cable 24/7. But the question is why did we need a channel or specific content for only dogs? The channel according to DOGTV CEO Gilad Neumann, many housebound animals experience emotional distress the concept can act as a cure for the gnawing. Well, that makes sense.
The channel has special shows, optimized specially for the stimulation, relaxation, and exposure. Exposure serves the purpose of providing dogs with a type of stress inoculation, As the Neumann says, “We expose dogs to more challenging situations like doorbells, vacuum cleaners, riding in cars, children, things that they tend to be more stressful around. With the right volume of content we help them, basically, deal with it better.”
The channel’s content also serves a purpose of educating pet owners about the feelings of their pets as well as how to rescue and cure them while they feel alone. Such as the Downward Dog TV series!
This TV series helps to understand the behavior of a pet that stays at home the whole day and start spoiling owners belonging just because he became lonely and unable to express it to his owner. It shows how the animal and especially dogs as a pet feel about their owner, what do they expect from us and being a human and only beloved to our only pet, we must understand them too.
