Dogs can become stressed, anxious, and bored when left home alone. This often leads to destructive behavior, separation anxiety and behavior issues. For many years, leading animal rescue organizations and animal behaviorists around the world have recommended leaving some form of media entertainment for your dog when you’re away from home. "A television can potentially provide all important mental stimulation for dogs and help prevent boredom behavior", reports The Petcare and Information Advisory Services (PIAS).
There are several reasons for these recommendations: 1. There are many noises outside or inside the house, which tend to stress dogs when they are left alone. Anything from an ambulance driving by to construction works to a washing machine - dogs can become overstimulated by this 'noise pollution'. 2. Leaving the radio or TV on for the dog can give him some sort of feeling of presence, so he will feel less alone and more safe and secure. 3. DogTV provides the dog with stimulation that he can't otherwise get while owners are away from home.
