SAN DIEGO: Escondido Humane Society has become the first animal shelter in San Diego County to install DOGTV for live viewing by dogs.
Last month, the North County shelter began showing DOGTV, television created for dogs, on several screens mounted in the facility. During its first month using the scientifically developed television for dogs, Escondido Humane Society has seen a marked improvement in all of the dogs who have been exposed to DOGTV, according to Sally Costello, executive director of Escondido Humane Society. She reported that higher-energy dogs, which were once showing signs of anxiety, are now exhibiting positive development and calmer behavior, including vocalizing less and resting more.
Caring for more than 5,000 animals a year, and with a current total of 115 dogs on-site, Escondido Humane Society provides animal care, adoption, education and protection services for north inland San Diego County. An open-door shelter, Escondido Humane Society partnered with DOGTV to provide an outlet of calm to the anxious dogs hosted in the behavior evaluation and adoption kennels. According to Costello, dogs tend to show more signs of stress in an unfamiliar environment, and the TV for dogs has facilitated calm for these pups, providing recognizable landscapes and imagery to focus on.
