Video of the Day: On-demand cable TV just for dogs

Does your dog get bored when you're gone for more than a few hours? Well, for $4.99 a month you can sign up for DogTV. That's hours upon hours of commercial free programming designed to keep Spot calm and happy until you get home. Scents may even be incorporated one day, so you pet can smell what's displayed on the screen.

According to Huffington Post:

"For years, pet owners have been leaving a television or radio on when they go out so their pets have company, said Dr. Nick Dodman, director of the Animal Behavior Clinic in Department of Clinical Sciences at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University in Massachusetts.

But Dodman said that according to research on the canine brain, with analog television, dogs could only see a flickering screen. New technologies like digital TV, high-definition cameras, and enhanced production have changed the way dogs perceive the images, while big screens allow them to see from anywhere in a room, Neumann said.

Do dogs really understand what they're watching? Dodman said research is ongoing, but it appears that dogs not only recognize other dogs on TV, they may even respond differently to their own breed."
