DOGTV Partners with LATTO

March 4, 2015

DOGTV, the No. 1 television network for canines, announced the launch of DOGTV Anywhere. Whether your poodle is traveling to Paris, your beagle is with a babysitter or your lab is lounging in the backseat of the car, DOGTV Anywhere brings 24-hour, dog-approved programming to pups on-the-go.

The new multi-platform app, developed by multiscreen video platform provider LATTO, allows dogs and their owners to access DOGTV from their Samsung Smart TVs, LG Smart TVs, Roku or any computer, iOS or Android device. Just when dog parents had given up the TV remote, they now have to surrender their mobile devices to their DOGTV-loving pups.

“We experienced an overwhelming response to last year’s launch of DOGTV, so we are excited to give pups and their parents more options for tuning into the programming”, said Gilad Neumann, CEO of DOGTV. “Our goal with DOGTV Anywhere is to be accessible to everyone, so all dogs can benefit from the programming, no matter where their travels take them and no matter what TV or media device their owner has”.

“We’re very excited to work with DOGTV to bring their unique programming to multiple devices”, said Alon Lavi, co-founder and CTO of LATTO. “Our solution enables flexibility and mobility that meets the lifestyle demands for pet parents and the growing demand for DOGTV”.

For $9.99 a month, DOGTV Anywhere subscribers get access to DOGTV on their computer and iOS or Android device, plus one other device – either their Samsung Smart TV, LG Smart TV or Roku. Users sign-up online and download the app to access the programming across the platforms. To sign-up, visitwww.dogtv.com/online.

DOGTV was scientifically developed and tested to treat stay-at-home dogs with programming specifically designed for their eyes and ears. The programming is split into three categories – relaxation, stimulation and exposure – that work collaboratively to provide just the right balance to ease boredom and stress levels.

  • Relaxation features soothing music, sounds and visuals to relax the dog, reduce stress levels and keep him or her calm.
  • Stimulation encourages dogs’ playfulness through active camera movements, exciting animations and moving objects and animals with appropriate sounds and frequencies.
  • Exposure uses the most advanced veterinary science, special sounds and visuals to help comfort and habituate dogs by exposing them to different day-to-day experiences, such as doorbells, cars, children and vacuum cleaners.

The original DOGTV content was produced and developed by a team of pet experts, including Victoria Stilwell, star of Animal Planet’s “”It’s Me or the Dog”” and one of the world’s most recognized and respected dog trainers; Dr. Nicholas Dodman, world-leading veterinary behaviorist and chief scientist for DOGTV; and Marty Becker, “America’s Veterinarian”, and DOGTV’s chief veterinary correspondent.
