pyratemom Raina doesn't pay a lot of attention to the TV but if the show K9 Cops is on I have seen her looking at the TV when the dogs bark and run after someone. Other than that, only quick motion on TV gets her attention. She has watched Too Cute with me a couple times and gets more interested when the puppies bark. Pyrate used to lay in front of the TV and watch with me. I miss that.

Bequavious Mine barks at doorbells, dogs, and clickers (if I'm watching YouTube). We've worked on her quiet cue so she's not as obnoxious any more, but Halloween and the stupid kitkat commercial about killed me. It had knocking and doorbells multiple times, plus I think a dog barked once ugh! Now, though, I can watch training videos and, as long as I let her look at the screen, she'll just do a head **** and maybe an under-the-breath bark lol!

mego When Lara was little she used to bark at ALL the dogs on tv, but now she has sort of learned to differentiate between tv dogs and real dogs, I don't know how.

My brother was playing Far Cry 3 on our big tv last time I went home, attack dogs tried to kill him and they were snarling and stuff, Lara kept trying to rear up and bite the tv. She doesn't do that anymore.

However, every time she hears a knock on a door in a tv show she does her alert barks

Linck I never thought mine cares the TV so much until he established that he hates gecko in Geico commercial. He barks the crap out of that green lizard.

KathrynApril My boy will look at the TV every now and then but he hasn't barked at it yet. The funniest and somewhat of a drawback is when I watch NCIS and he hears someone on the show say his name/Dinozzo. He will look at the tv like, "Yes?"

Lilie My dogs aren't allowed to watch TV. Too much violence.

Sp00ks Something would get her attention from time to time, mostly sound (surround) until that annuity commercial came on where they sing Opera. OMG, she would start howling, it was the funniest thing. You couldn't laugh or look at her or she would quit. We could be in the living room and if that commercial came on you could hear her howling in the back of the house. Dang I miss that...

LARHAGE My German Shepherds don't but one of my Cairn Terriers is awful, she particularly hates the shaggy dog from the Travelers Insurance Company, she can be in another room and hear the music start and she makes a beeline to the TV jumping up and snapping at the screen, it's actually annoying after awhile as I watch a lot of animal shows.

MrsFergione She's only reacted to the TV once. She was sleeping on the couch and then sirens came on the TV and she jumped up and started howling.
