Default Victoria Stillwell endorsing "DOGTV"

Victoria appeared on ABC's Nightline program to discuss how a new channel scientifically designed to be watched by dogs really works. For more information, visit the DogTV website.

Watch Victoria talking about it here:
http://positively.com/2012/02/17/vic...-on-nightline/

Test the videos on your dogs here:
http://www.dogtv.com/Page/watchdogtv

One of the people questioned on the video said "smellavision" now that could work!
Coco gave these videos no attention at all....

Maybe it could help dogs with separation anxiety but I honestly think most dogs will just ignore it. I think maybe the one with dogs running around would catch the attention for a bit, but they'll figure out it's another thing stuck in that stupid box.

Whether it works or not, I'm sure the average pet owner is going to eat it up. I don't even know how many people bought those "Dog Sitter" dvd's when I worked at petsmart. I know a ton of pet owners that leave their TV's on Animal Planet when they leave.

The fact that its a paid subscription channel as well,clearly just there to make money off those with too much!

I leave the TV on for the dogs when I leave.. even if it does nothing for them entertainment wise, it sure does stop them from obsessing over foot step or person walking around the hallway of my apartment building lol

but I certainly wouldn't subscribe to a channel for that..

I'm sure people will eat it up. Victoria Stillwell's show isn't doing that well.. so desperate times I suppose lol

Well, just for kicks I played the stimulation one for Caleb. Once he got over being in my lap in the computer chair, he did watch it. He was more excited when we were video chatting with our son, tho.

Fleetwood loves to watch the TV. He watched almost the entire dog show with me, and I was extremely dissapointed when he turned out to be a big Twilight Fan (because I am NOT).

I honestly think that would work out well for dogs like him, I suppose, and I'm sure a lot of pampering pet owners will pay for it!

Gambit is crazy for watching Glee. I think the music and all the movement gets to him, but he will perch on the bed and watch entire episodes of it. It's super, super cute.

Argon doesn't care, but when I had Grimm, he was nuts for cartoons.
