So what’s new? How are you and your dog enjoying this endless summer? I hope you’re having a great time and showing your pooch lots of love!
1. Schedule. As you may or may not be aware of, we are trying to use DOGTV’s programs to fit with your dogs’ day cycle. Yes, dogs do have their own daily routine – although, let’s face it, it isn’t as complicated or full as your routine. I heard somebody joking that dogs sleep 16 hours a day – and the remaining hours of the day they rest. Pet Place.com suggests an ideal dog schedule so you can see where your dog is standing.

2. Jasper. Have you heard of Jasper, the 3-year-old Yorkie? Apparently “Jasper would get into trouble and make a mess of things in my house. I know he was doing this because of anxiety of being left alone.” So, what’s the solution? Read more about it in the article “What DOGTV, the first television for dogs, has done for my dog.”
3. TV. Here is something I wrote about before – do dogs really understand what they are seeing on TV? As discussed, we’ve spent more than four years of researching and developing the right content for dogs, so that they can see, hear and respond to it in the best possible way.
The article “Can Dogs Understand What’s on TV?,” that came out this week, agrees that “So can dogs understand what’s happening on TV? With the right TV and the right content, yes.” (They also called us CNN for canines – amusing!) Read the interesting article here.
4. Vertical. Thanks for sending all those great videos of your dog watching DOGTV! I just can’t get enough of seeing these videos (just type ‘dogs watching DOGTV’ on YouTube and see for yourself.)
By the way, when filming your dog, I have a tiny technical comment: If filming with an iPhone, try holding it horizontal. As you can see in this picture (of dogs watching DOGTV), so many of you suffer from “Vertical Video Syndrome.” What? Did you not hear of “Vertical Video Syndrome?” You have to check it out!
I wish you all a great week!
