Does you chi watch tv? edited to add video

I know that sounds crazy....but hubby and I are watching Marley and Me and Addy is sitting behind me on the couch. She starts watching the movie and barking and growling at the tv. We had to change the channel:cool: I told hubby we should watch Beverly Hills Chihuahua...she would like that better :rolleyes:

Zoey love to watch TV esp Dog show. Like Pitbulls and Parolies on animal planet. She does not like our local news traffic annoucer, when she hears his voice she goes trying to get at him. I want to take video someday and send it to him.

I had always been told dogs can't see TV's. I don't know where it came from but that just seems to be the general consensus among people I know?

Bryco & Trigger both bark whenever they hear another dog or a doorbell on TV though.

Shayley doesn't but Kizzie does! Nothing like my old dog Pooey use to. There was a beer commercial that use to play all the time and they had a guy dressed in a bird outfit saying "Cheap Cheap Fun Fun!" and when she saw/heard him she went dashing to the TV barking. LOL IT was so cute!

My two will watch if there are dogs or something that catches their attention. They respond to a phone ringing or someone knocking on a door. My Lacy would go nuts if there was a sword fight on TV. She would rush the TV, barking and growling. She didn't respond to anything else like that. I think it was the sound of the swords clanging and striking each other. I leave the TV on for Cosmo and Lavender when I'm gone, just for the company.

I heard that dogs couldnt see tv either. None of my dogs have ever responded to the tv before. I guess that is only a myth:confused: Here is the video I got of Addy watching it. It took forever to download from my phone to youtube.

Chip doesn't really pay attention to the TV but one of my pugs, Pogo LOVES TV! She watches what ever we do and will lay right in front of the TV and stare at it. She barks at any animals she sees, dogs, horses, cats, whatever. And she watches the shows and will growl and mumble occasionally. It's hysterical, like she knows what's going on! It's a lot of fun!

Betty loooves tv. We often see her watching shows with us. SHe despises any dog on tv/pictures on the computer though! So we always have to correct her when she starts to growl/bark at them. She is getting much better. :)

If something on tv catches Peanuts attention such as dogs barking she will stop and watch it for a while, but not for long as everything seems to catch her attention at the moment.

I think the not being able to see TV is a myth..maybe they can't see the colors and only see shapes or something.. Baxter likes to watch tv..anything we watch he'll just lay down and stare at it with us lol. He doesn't bark at dogs on tv but he will tilt his head if they are making noises lol.

Gracie watches everything on tv, but pays the most attention to anything on Animal Planet or National Geographic, much like her human mommy.

Pedro has only paid attention to the television once, and that was when he heard the voice of the woman who originally rescued him on the local news. It was a very sweet moment!
