Question Does your dog watch TV?

Bodhi is totally uninterested, but we've noticed that Fred will watch intently, and head tilt at the sounds. He doesn't just glance, but soaks it in for a good while. So funny

Nope. Neither did Phoebe. I've tried to point things out to them, or get them excited about a dog or animal on tv but no dice. I think it's cute though, lol

I've always thought it was because they are 'townies' And I am VERY proud my dogs are EXCELLENT townies. They dont bark at every little thing like the neighbor dogs. They hear and see all kinds of town noises, people coming and going, other dogs, cars, cats, squirrels....just a billion things they've learned to tune out, and tv is just one more on the list, lol

Not normally, though when we were visiting my in-laws they have one of those giant 60+" TVs and it's set just off the floor so it's more or less dog height...Mira walked into the room right as (discovery channel) a giant grizzly ran charging and roaring across the screen. Pretty sure she though we were under attack lolol.

But no, not normally

Only Snipe seems to even notice the TV and she only pays attention to it periodically. She really likes to listen to the Yes live concerts on Netflix!

They've been known to watch when there are dogs on screen, but not too intently.

I always wonder who's idea it was to put TVs in the kennels of some doggy day cares. Seems like a waste for the most part. (Except for Fred's case, I guess!)

Tempie doesn't, but Raja and Boone do.


Especially SVU, which I find really odd. There aren't animals, not a whole lot of flashy lights or crazy sounds... I guess they just got their excellent taste in tv shows from me. lol

Too cute!


Jose` is the only dog I can remember who watches TV. He doesn't do it for long stretches, but if there are dogs or horses...really any animal on there, he'll watch intently and growl at them. lol. I have to tell him to pipe down or I can't hear what's going on. Then he'll settle down and go to sleep. But yeah...he does watch for a little bit quite often.

Seamus loves watching TV, especially if there are animals on. Sometimes he barks at it and runs up to the screen if he's really feeling it.

Sally doesn't notice the TV.
