    Default TV Watching

    Do any of your Cavaliers go nuts over animals on TV? Abbey goes crazy when she sees dogs or any other animal on TV. She even bolts off the couch and jumps at the screen! We usually have to turn the channel to get her to stop.
    We dog sat a terrier mix a few weeks ago, and she was clueless that the TV was even on.

    Nope, haven't experienced that with my pup, but that sounds like quite a sight! I'd be in stitches, unless of course it was a show I couldn't take my eyes off of.

    monty is hit or miss with the tv.

    he definitely knows when animals are on, since his ears perk up & he watches the tv. but sometimes he runs & barks at the tv and sometimes he just resumes whatever he's doing (chewing a toy, watching real birds outside, etc.)

    Rory does the same thing! He freaks out over animals - especially dogs - on TV. Shiloh, on the other hand, doesn't notice at all!

    Busta and Woody love the vet and zoo programmes, we have a 42" plasma screen which shows them big, sometimes they go round the back to see if they are there....

    Maxx detests animals on tv. If it's a dog he will just groan and moan at it but if it's a larger animal he will go demented jumping at the tv and barking. He especially hates horses and cows

    Zola growls at horses.
    We found out last week that it wasn't confined to the TV, as we were driving around Stephen's green and were stopped at the lights beside some horses and she went mental!

    Yup Gizmo jumps at the TV and barks and whines at dogs on TV .... horses he doesn't seem to like either ..... same thing in that he'll look out the window and see if they are there when he sees that there's no reaction with the other animals on the TV !!!

    Both mine bark at any dog barking on TV. Also at wolves howling.

    Chester will bolt off the couch to bark at cats on the TV and sometimes at the dogs. He's not a big barker but the TV will get him going. Also, our next-door neighbor Riley the Papillon will sometimes start barking out on the patio and Chester will bark in response. They're buddies so I figure they're just "chatting" with each other and talking about their day. ;-)
