I'm a bit curious as to what it is the dogs watch, and what shows they would recommend.
honestly not messing around our dogs like family guy. They will bark all day long if the tv isn't on while we are at work. Our husky the barker likes family guy and hates American dad our lab he likes anything especially animal planet or documentaries. we set up a Web cam feed to watch them and if American dad is on our husky will bark and howl except between episodes. but will watch or sleep with family guy and not make a peep.
My mom is the same, except she actually leaves the lights on for the dogs. Such a waste.
But it's recommended that a tv is left on for dogs. It tends to calm them by giving them the impression they aren't alone. This is a pretty common technique for dog owners.
Yeah I was going to agree! The white noise keeps them calm, especially a channel with people's voices. My alsatian has separation anxiety. This works really well. At least their mom's TV thing is serving a purpose. Leaving your light on by accident isn't comparable. In my opinion. Just my 2 cents.
I logged in just to leave that comment, 5. If you're going to be gone for hours, the dog needs to hear voices/have stimulation. Also, I don't know why #9 is getting down voted. While OP may not have deserved getting yelled at, they really are very different things.
Recommeded? For dogs? By who? They're animals,not children so don't treat them as such. Just because they're domesticated does not mean they're not an animal. This is how some of these so called "pet owners" get into a lot of shit and create pet issues with these kind of actions. Treating your pets as a human being will only cause more damage to them. The number one reason pets have separation anxiety is because of this practice some of these pet owners think up.
oh man the arrogance in this ignorant post is almost painful to just read. many vets have recommended to me personally that if a dog shows signs of separation anxiety leave the tv on. It really isn't hard to understand the concept. Perhaps it works with a radio too never tried. I know 100% that it works with a TV though. Unless your dog is smart enough to know it is not real.

Well I mean it is her house and she pays the bills not you. Although it was a bit uncalled for to be yelled at. Besides my dogs watch tv and it's comforting for them to believe someone is in the house and they aren't alone. It also can prevent burglars (in some cases) since they will believe someone is home if the tv is on.
