Ours usually react to some sounds, but today for the first time Sasha was just staring watching and following the action!!

It was a movie on Bravo with Jennifer Lopez (Sasha has good taste [emoticon]). But this was a first for her. Kaylee doesn't react at all.

I have noticed they will glance at it if a animals or animal sounds are on but for the most part no. I have always heard their brain process visual information faster then a human and can see the scan lines that we don't perceive. Don't know if it's applicable with a 4k tv that has progressive transmitted picture over the interlaced transmitted picture. Our brain sees the picture as complete.


When the study was done tv's were 60hz now they are 120hz and 240 hz. (Refresh rate).

My dog want to watch political commentaries. I think with what he has seen so far, he thinks he can be a better president.

As a kid had a Pom/Terrier mix that would go crazy whenever Broderick Crawford?Highway Patrol would come on. Couldn't get him to stop barking until you turned the channel

Our Border Collie/Lab would sit next to me and WATCH PBS Wildlife Specials.
Any other stuff and she wasn't even slightly interested in
She really liked the Zebras

Border Collie/Beagle we have now......he's only interested in when is next 'snack'


Is it time for your medication or mine?

None of our dogs have ever reacted to anything on TV other than animal sounds or a doorbell that sounded like ours. We had a cat once who would occasionally watch sporting events like tennis and hockey--something with a fast moving object. She also became fascinated by a dog show once. I'm pretty sure it was the movement of the dogs around the ring that caught her attention.

My Border Collie likes to watch nature programs, especially coyotes and wolves. She watched some wolves taking down some large animals like elk and bison, and I think she had trouble sleeping and some nightmares.

Sometimes she charges the screen and growls. Once in awhile she will give a sharp warning bark.

My cat does for limited periods. Colors, flashing lights etc. entice her.
