(Scroll down for video) Your dog will soon be able to watch television and use its own remote control that is also chewable thanks to a pet friendly company in the United Kingdom.

Wagg Foods Ltd of Thirsk, said that it completed a prototype and is testing the TV remote for dogs ahead of mass production for the public.

“We’re testing a prototype for the first ever dog TV remote! It’s specially designed with large paw-friendly buttons, and yellow and blue colors so dogs can easily see what they’re pressing.

What TV show would your dog tune into?” The company wrote on Facebook.

Wagg, a pet food manufacturer, said that the remote control has been skillfully made of water-resistant hard plastic.

The giant buttons with raised surfaces makes it easy for dogs to change channels and gives off low frequency sounds to attract the pets.

Wagg has developed the remote control with computer designers of the University of Central Lancashire in Preston.
