    Forrest doesn't bark at the tv, but does love watching certain things. It's so weird...he loves really animated cartoons (the Grinch has him mesmerized).


    Ignore the messy dresser

    Forrest just loves sitting with me and watching videos of Cavaliers on YouTube. It's a weird little hobby we started when he was a puppy and I would watch Cavalier videos on YouTube on my iPad making sure Forrest was acting like a normal puppy (I was always worried!) and he just loved watching the other dogs.

    My best trick is (and I know this is weird, but it works for him), if Forrest is being honery and running around like a mad man I just put the dogs barking Jingle Bells YouTube video ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xam01...e_gdata_player) on the tv or computer and Forrest immediately will sit and watch and tilt his head back and forth to the music and he immediately is well behaved. He's an odd puppy

    Ollie does watch some TV, especially if there are animals in them, it is really funny to see him, he runs to the TV and jumps up and barks and then runs into the hall to look for them, I have a really sweet photo of him watching the film Stewart Little, shame I am hopeless at posting photos.

    She now also recognises the music on certain adverts that contain animals so as soon as the music starts even before the animals appear she is the get ready to go bananas mode before they even appear .
    That is awesome about them recognising the music...I will tell the kids at school...they are learning about music for film and television

    Bella barks when there are animals on tele too.

    That is so funny about putting on the barking jingle bells for Forrest. I wish that trick would work for Sonny!

    Someone recently told me about a new program on TV just for dogs, intended to keep them company during the day while their people work. I don't know any details but assume it would feature dogs. It might condition our dogs to adjust to digital animals, it might make them psychotic, or maybe it would tire them out. I would have to supervise before considering it, and I have no desire now. Has anyone else heard of this program?

    Oh my goodness, this has been a big topic between me and Rose's "Aunt" (who has her sister/littermate). They both started with going nuts at the Travellers Insurance commercial with the white dog (and we live in seperate states!) and now it's moved on to any animal on tv. What I finally ended up doing with Rose (and it's tiresome, but my legs got a good workout for a while :P) is I would get up, stand between her and the tv, and tell her to hush and then give her a command she knows inside out (usually "sit") to get her attention focused on me and not the tv. Then she would sit there and sass me (it is SO hard not to laugh!!! little quiet growls and "woofs"). So I would take a step closer to her, and tell her to hush again, get sassed again, repeat a third time, and then it was "time out!" time (bathroom). When she got it right, she would get the enthusiastic "good girl"s that she loves. After a while of that, she now knows that if I tell her to hush and she doesn't, I get her attention by asking if she needs a time out. That usually does it about 99% of the time now . One thing that backfired on me was distracting her with a laser toy. She started barking at the tv and then turning around and looking at the floor, all excited because she KNEW that barking made her favorite toy come out *facepalm*.

    I did show Rose the Cavalier class at Westminster(?) on the computer the other day, and she was excited and barked and woo woo'd and had to look all around the computer to find them, but after about 12 minutes of that, she was snoozing again. I never thought I'd see the day! lol

    Charlie is just awful when it comes to any sort of,animal on T.V. He watches it all the time and things that run are a favorite and any sort of dog but it's the initial noise that riles him up in the first place!!

    we are working with getting their attention away from the tv, even for a split second to start and then the single word 'NO' and it seems to be working.
