Many of the evening’s entertainers have long loved composing music for dogs, including Dost, who has previously created music for DOGTV.

“I think the idea of writing music for any non-human ears is really fascinating,” said Dost. “Dogs are listening for different things than we are, such as the noises of prey or of affection. They are getting very different things out of the music than we are. I ask myself, what does my dog want to hear? I know she hates trumpet and high notes. What causes the comfort, joy or longing we humans experience when we listen to music? I wanted to explore that.”

Billy Bob Thornton, a longtime fan of DOGTV for his canine companions, jumped at the chance to participate in One Night Only. His original song Breathe Easy was composed for his human family member, daughter Bella.

DOGTV has long offered music composed just for dogs on its platform to help soothe our four legged family members. One Night Only also features DOGTV’s longtime musician Ryan Wasoba, folk-singer Drew Danburry, composer and singer Zoe Polanski, German punk band Die Konten, and classical musician Michael Tjanaka, as well as behind the scenes looks into how some of the entertainers compose music for dogs.

DOGTV’s programming is specifically created for canine enrichment, to keep dogs happy, confident and relaxed. Using years of research by some of the world’s top animal researchers, scientists, veterinarians, dog behaviorists, and trainers and after receiving five patents on content methods, DOGTV has created shows that meet specific attributes of a dog’s sense of vision and hearing and support their natural behavior patterns.

With a predicted dog separation anxiety epidemic expected as pet parents return to work, DOGTV is a proven remedy. In addition to events such as One Night Only and musical canine programming, DOGTV offers content for humans, including behavioral shows featuring leading dog trainers, and even a dog chef, who can teach parents what to cook for their canine children for optimal wellness.

One Night Only will be hosted on DOGTV, which can be viewed through streaming, cable, or online, and does not require a DOGTV subscription to attend. Signing up before April 17th is encouraged for a chance to win a prize pack featuring 1-year of dog food provided by Nature’s Logic, 1-year of DOGTV, and a PetCube Cam.
