San Diego, CA — Pet Lounge, an exciting new San Diego-based television show featuring a variety of pets and the people who care for them, will premier April 8 on Cox Cable.
The half-hour show, which airs at 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, will feature multiple segments on a variety of pets and highlight new discoveries in behavior, nutrition, health and science. The pilot episode is devoted to travel and features segments on dog friendly luxury hotels, a winery devoted to charitable dog causes, and San Diego’s own dog beaches.
Pet Lounge creator Jude Artenstein has worked tirelessly as a pet activist, and also founded and organizes California’s largest pet adoption fair, the Doggie Street Festival, www.doggiestreetfestival.org. Using the knowledge she has gained as a dog lover and a volunteer, she created Pet Lounge in the hopes of helping audiences better understand and care for companion animals.
“There is so much to discover about the animals we share this planet with,” said Artenstein, an award-winning filmmaker. I hope Pet Lounge connects us more to the natural world and provides insight into how we enrich one another’s lives. I believe in the power of knowledge, the more we learn the better we are able to understand and care for our companion animals.”
A recent report showed that Americans spent $52 billion last year on their pets. Pet Lounge aims to inform and enlighten the millions of people with pets as well as enrich the lives of animals.
Future episodes will uncover history and folklore, reveal the human-animal bond and delight in the fun and joy of memorable encounters. Segments include a pet psychic, a feature on senior dog adopters, how to fly with your pet, acupressure for pets and a visit to a raptor institute.
The series will initially be broadcast in San Diego (Cox Channel 4), Santa Barbara (Cox Channel 8), and Orange County (Cox Channel 3) before it expands to other cities nationwide.
