If you’re currently writing your own book about a dog-related topic, you’ll want to check out this list as a means of scoping out some of your competition. Even if you’re not, this list may still be of interest any time you have a few spare moments to dedicate to reading for personal interest.
Dog Entertainment: DogTV and Audiobooks for Dogs
Unless you’re one of the lucky employees at a company that has a take-your-dog-to-work policy, your dog probably spends some time at home alone. Unfortunately, dogs who are left alone can become anxious and destructive, resorting to behaviors like chewing, howling and excessive barking.
Anxious dogs find solace in the sound of human voices. If you can’t always be at home to talk to your dog, the next best option could be to make sure your dog has audio companionship.
There are multiple ways people are approaching this. One option is to get a DogTV subscription to ensure your dog has suitable viewing material in addition to the audio. Another option is to leave audiobooks playing for your canine friend.
Of course, you don’t have to feel obligated to buy a DogTV subscription or audiobooks for this type of strategy to be effective. Another alternative would be to prepare recordings of your own voice for your dog to listen to while you’re away. That would be heaps of work, though; an easier approach would be to just leave the radio or TV on for your dog to listen to when you’re not at home.
Apps for Dog Lovers
There are bunches of apps that are useful and fun for digital publishers who are also dog enthusiasts. One amusing option is this Dog Dress Up Android game, and another is Microsoft’s Fetch. There are also plenty of other interesting possibilities continually becoming available.
