The band was formed in 1994 by singer-songwriter, Peter Stuart. Stuart founded the band after being discovered by Adam Duritz, the lead vocalist of the Counting Crows. He began recording music with producer Jimbo Barton and the new band, whose lineup included Neil Nunziato on drums, Mike Visceglia on bass, Dawn Buckhola on the cello, and Regina Ballantese on the violin. They became known collectively as Dog's Eye View.
However, by the time Dog's Eye View began recording their first album, Nunziato, Visceglia, Buckhola, and Ballantese had all departed. The band, at this point featuring Stuart joined by lead guitarist Oren Bloedow, bassist John Abbey, and drummer Alan Bezozi signed with Sony Records and released the album Happy Nowhere in 1995, which peaked at No. 77 on the Billboard Top 200 album charts. They also recorded a song for the Vic Chesnutt benefit album "Sweet Relief Two". In 1996, they had major success at radio and VH1 with the single "Everything Falls Apart", which hit No. 8 on the Top 40 Mainstream charts and No. 66 on the Billboard Hot 100. Following this success, Dog's Eye View toured with Counting Crows, Del Amitri, and The Wallflowers following the release of Happy Nowhere. However, a second single, "Small Wonders", failed to chart.
A second album, Daisy, was released by Sony in 1997.
After an extended hiatus, Dog's Eye View released a third album (also on Vanguard), Tomorrow Always Comes, on January 24, 2006, which featured backing vocals by singers Jason Mraz and Kelly Moneymaker, as well as an appearance from Paul Doucette of Matchbox Twenty.
