We’ve all got our own favourite Christmas films that we like to watch over the festive period. Usually, it’s a film that the whole family can enjoy, but what about your dog? After eating some left-over turkey from the Christmas dinner, your four-legged-friend might want to let their dinner go down whilst watching a Christmas movie of its own.
Christmas TV channel, Christmas24 realise you want your pet to have a perfect Christmas as well as you. That’s why they’ve created Merry Woofmas, a Christmas film for dogs. Narrated by Louis Walsh, this specially dedicated doggy film has been scientifically made to visually appeal to dogs. The short film sees dog Molly enjoying Christmas day with her friends, but what gifts will she receive?
Louis Walsh commented: “I’ve absolutely loved narrating this special Christmas movie for dogs. It’s been really interesting to learn how pets are stimulated by different sounds and I hope they enjoy my voice-over in this film. I’ll definitely be encouraging Sharon and Simon’s dogs to give this a watch with me this Christmas!”
Christmas 24 worked with animal behaviourist Dr Candy d’Sa and veterinarian Robert White-Adams throughout the scripting and production of this doggie movie to ensure it incorporates the kind of on-screen stimuli that gets a positive response from dogs including: creating the movie in a dog’s colour spectrum of blues and yellows; slow-moving imagery and short scenes that cater to a dog’s limited attention span. More information on this expert research can be found in the specially commissioned report for Christmas 24 by Dr Candy d’Sa.
Dr Candy d’Sa said: “It’s important to realise that dogs see the world in a very different way to us humans, and respond differently to certain audio and visuals. I think it’s great that there’s now a Christmas film specifically developed for dogs, so the whole family can sit back, relax and enjoy a Christmas film together this festive season.”
Merry Woofmas will premiere on the 28th October on the Christmas24 Facebook at 4:50pm. In the meantime, grab your popcorn, or a bone, and take a look at this teaser!
