Launch of the world's first scientifically-based dog companion
DVD collection will revolutionize the pet industry.
TORONTO, Nov. 7 /CNW/ - This holiday season dog owners finally have a
defence against "the look" - that dejected stare dogs give just before the
front door closes. Introducing Your Dog Companion, the first
scientifically-based DVD collection designed to allow dogs to watch and listen
from their own perspective.
This new collection, produced by The Pet Network via Pet Entertainment
Products Inc. (PEPI), and created by world-renowned dog behaviourist Dr.
Stanley Coren, was designed to entertain and amuse dogs while their owners
carry on with their daily lives. Additionally, owners will appreciate that the
DVDs can actually relieve and even eliminate the problematic behaviours that
are associated with leaving dogs at home alone.
"Much like people, dogs want to be entertained in their daily lives,"
says Dr. Coren, "and Your Dog Companion does just that, keeping dogs engaged
and stimulated when their owners aren't available to play."
Each of the four titles in the DVD series is filled with exciting visuals
that resonate with dogs, and the soundtracks are designed to help reduce
hypersensitivity to noises such as thunder, doorbells and knocking, sirens,
and fireworks. Owners will notice after just a couple of days that their dog
will react more calmly to their everyday surroundings.
"Owners of dogs with separation anxiety know that solutions are limited
and usually quite costly, ranging from replacing slippers to hiring a sitter"
says Dr. Coren. "I'm very excited about this product, because I love dogs, and
know the feeling people get from leaving their family pet alone each day."
Regarded as one the world's foremost experts on dog behaviour and
training, Dr. Coren has spent years helping unhappy dogs and owners overcome
their anxieties, and is also featured in the Good Dog series. Your Dog
Companion is the culmination of Dr. Coren's celebrated career and a legacy
that stems from his years of research.
The four-disc Your Dog Companion series makes for the perfect gift or
stocking stuffer this Holiday season, and can be purchased separately or as a
collection, exclusively online at www.thedogdvd.com. Individual DVDs start at
$19.95, or shoppers can take advantage of the special introductory offer and
get the full collection for only $39.95. A portion of every sale is donated to
the Ontario SPCA.
