Shows for the Dogs

What do Nat Geo Wild’s Rocky Mountain Animal Rescue and Barkfest have in common with ESPN’s X Games and an AXS TV salute to Elton John?

They – and over 40 other programs – are all “Shows Your Dog Will Love,” a specially curated on-demand lineup available to Sling TV subscribers through Tuesday, August 28.

Brits Icon: Elton John

The lineup’s curator is Cesar Millan, perhaps better known as the Dog Whisperer, who selected the shows “based on his extensive experience in dog psychology.”

According to Milan, dogs love shows in the nature, sports, action and music categories, and, of course, shows featuring other dogs. “It’s important for our best pet friends to be active and get exercise, but it is equally important for them to spend time relaxing, and many of us know they love to watch TV,” he said in a press release.

Sling TV feels you’ll especially want to cuddle up with your canine friends in front of the TV this Sunday, which is National Dog Day.

To get the complete list of “Shows Your Dog Will Love – Picked by Cesar Millan” and watch your dog’s favorites, Sling Orange and Sling Blue subscribers should go to their “My TV” screens.

Not a subscriber? Get a seven-day free Sling TV trial at If you decide to keep Slinging after then, either Orange or Blue will cost $25 per month.

What’s the difference between Sling Orange and Sling Blue? Orange offers 30 live channels, while Blue has 45. And while Orange and Blue carry many of the same channels, each plan includes channels that are exclusive to its package. Also, Blue allows you to stream three channels simultaneously; Orange only one.  Until recently, Blue was priced as a premium plan.

Which plan is for you? You can explore the Orange and Blue channel selections at Sling. Then if you can’t make up your mind, you can subscribe to both plans for $40.
