Bing Watching for Paws at Kapiti PetVilla

Ever wondered what your dog does when you’re not around? At Kapiti PetVilla, we’ve discovered they might just be catching up on their favorite shows!

Welcome to the fascinating world of DogPlayTV and DogTV, where our furry guests enjoy tailor-made entertainment. It’s not just about keeping them occupied; it’s about understanding and catering to their unique canine needs.

The Bark About Dog TV:

When we first introduced DogPlayTV and DogTV at Kapiti PetVilla, we were intrigued by the concept. These aren’t your average channels; they’re designed specifically for canine consumption, focusing on the visual and auditory stimuli that appeal to dogs. While humans might find these shows a bit bland, they’re the canine equivalent of a binge-worthy Netflix series.

Tail-Wagging Technology: The Science Behind Dog TV:

The idea of dogs watching TV might sound amusing, but there’s a serious side to it. A study by the Center for Canine Behavior Studies, in partnership with DOGTV, reveals that such programming can make dogs feel more content and less agitated, particularly when they’re alone. This is particularly beneficial for dogs with separation anxiety or sensitivities to certain stimuli​​. Modern TVs, with their higher refresh rates, provide a clear and engaging visual experience for dogs, a significant upgrade from the older, choppier displays​​.

Our Experience at Kapiti PetVilla:

At our facility, we’ve seen firsthand the calming effects of these dog-centric shows. It’s not unusual to see our canine guests lounging in front of the TV, deeply engrossed in the on-screen action. And yes, they do seem to have a soft spot for ‘The Simpsons’! It’s a heartwarming sight – a group of dogs, each with their unique personalities, coming together for some shared screen time.


Incorporating DogPlayTV and DogTV into our routine at Kapiti PetVilla isn’t just about innovation; it’s about understanding and enriching the lives of the dogs in our care. These technologies, alongside our dedicated staff and home-like environment, contribute to a harmonious, stress-free atmosphere. It’s a testament to how a little technological advancement can go a long way in enhancing the wellbeing of our four-legged companions.

So, the next time you turn on the TV, spare a thought for the canine audience out there. They might just be more discerning viewers than we give them credit for!

At Kapiti PetVilla, we’re more than just a pet boarding facility; we’re a home away from home, where every dog gets a chance to relax, play, and maybe catch up on some TV!
