Do you have a furry, four-legged friend that has to endure through a move with you? Well never fear, DogTV is here!
DOGTV wants to provide a friendly pet sitter by means of your television. Their initial debut will be in San Diego on Cox (channel 2635) and on Time Warner (channel 148). Gilad Neumann, CEO of DOGTV, says “Loving our dogs so much, we feel guilty when we leave them home alone. DOGTV provides customized television entertainment, while the rest of the family is away at work or too busy to play. Studies show it relaxes and stimulates our dogs, keeping them healthier and more content.”
So how will all of this help you? Well, your dog can suffer from anxiety and plain ol’ boredom when you’re gone for extended periods of time. DOGTV will provide soothing content for you friendly Fido to watch while you’re away, stimulating them mentally so they don’t tear up the house or bark and howl all day. Moving can be an extremely stressful time for dogs, especially with strangers coming in and out of the home frequently and the sudden change to a new location.
Air Animal, one of our associates we met at the AMSA 2012 Conference, specializes in pet relocation services. Their comprehensive pet moving packages are designed to help keep your pet calm and relaxed during relocation, and arrive with that same loving smile on his or her face that melts your heart. You can read up on moving your dog or pets of any species on Air Animal’s website, but they always recommend you take the proper steps to prepare before your move. This includes microchipping, veterinary consultation, updating vaccines and shots, and potentially getting a blood sample to prove your pet is free of rabies and other diseases.
Finally, once you arrive to your final destination, take your furry friend out to stretch their legs. There are few better places on the coast of California to take your dog than the dog beaches. Running up and down the coastline, digging in the sand, and playing in the waves can provide a great day of exercise and make sure your pup gets all their wiggles out.
