My dog shows no interest in SD. OTOH, she responds well enough to HD that we keep a careful eye on her depending upon content. We don't want her trying to play with the people running around in the screen.

While I was waiting for the wife to get out of the shower this morning I turned on the channel. Our dog that was also up in bed did watched it until the wife came out, now got to hope the dog doesn't figure out how to run the remote.

Dog number two is not liking this. Didn't notice the baby and lab until the lab's breathing was audible ---- then growling, and now ignoring.....

I thought the same thing. My dogs couldn't care less about this channel. They'd rather look out the window. :D

Heh.... that's what DVRs are for: Time shifting! 

 

Has your dog "seen" it yet? Or, more likely, heard it? I'm 0 for 2 dogs being interested, but it's only been the relaxation times they've (sorta) "experienced".

Right, I would have to DVR the Morning Relaxation in the middle of the night so she can watch it in the morning.

Good lord, I can't believe I'm actually talking about this. No way I'm subscribing to it anyway!

Well, not to be too conspiratorial, but for those shows your dog "likes", would repeats work for the next 40 times? Hence recording just a handful and playing over for the next year might work....

On CNBC they had an interview with the creator of this channel. He said that dogs do remember the shows and after too many repeats they do get boared and stop watching, so they do create new content to help reduce repeats.

My dog looked at the tv a couple of times, sniffing at the center speaker, when he could hear the breathing of dogs being walked. But, aside from that, she wasn't interested at all.

Just put it on for a few minutes and my dog showed no interest except for the scenes with dogs in them. Then she goes right up to the screen and starts growling and barking.

So much for afternoon relaxation... For either of us, lol.

While reading this thread, I tuned to the station.  My 4-year-old weimaraner, who had been laying in her favorite position looking out the window, got up and left. It certainly didn't do anything for her.

What would you expect him to say?    Based on how many times I get my dog to chase the ball across the yard, I don't think that is a problem.   If they like something, I am pretty sure boredom is not a problem.

 

It's not like they are going to quit their day jobs and just hang around on the sofa all day, is it?

Dogs are pretty stupid.  Maybe you can just record the channel during the two free weeks and then just play it back for the woofer.
