West Des Moines, IA - August 21, 2020 - The first television channel created specifically for dogs and their human companions is DOGTV, and it’s now available on Mediacom cable television. In celebration of National Dog Day on August 26, Mediacom customers will receive open access to explore the channel during a week-long preview period from August 21 to August 27.

Creators of DOGTV tout the benefits pet owners gain when using the channel while their dogs are home alone. DOGTV is scientifically designed with special visuals and sounds to help dogs relax and be entertained when they’re home alone or in anxious situations. The original content is research-tested and scientifically developed, featuring topics that include exposure, simulation and relaxation.

DOGTV partners with veterinarians, dog trainers and pet industry experts to share health and wellness tips for “pet parents.” Newly added programs will include “Dogstar,” a user-generated show featuring dogs from around the world; and “At Home with Laura Nativo,” featuring the celebrity dog trainer. Popular with companion animal owners are “The Dog Chef,” with its simple recipes for dog snacks and food; and “Things We Woof About,” a program that looks at dog trends, products and services.

DOGTV is available as a premium channel through Mediacom OnDemand Channel. To access DogTV On Demand, go to Channel 1, select Premiums, select DogTV. The subscription fee is $4.99 per month and access requires the use of a Mediacom TiVO box.
