Re: Attention Dog Owners
Heard some lady on tv sounded like she was barkin' all about it turnin' dogs into couch potatoes, like that was a bad thing.
First, as if they're not already, couch + dog = you do the math, second, when dogs are left by themselves inside your home, you know, where your oft apt to keep at least some of your bestest of stuff, isn't that just the most wonderful of thoughts.
I keeps the tube on for them damn cats when we leave, gotta hide the remote, 'ol Downtown Buster Brown, yeah he loooves that Pay-Per-View.
Spidey, I think it's ridiculous to have to *pay* $5.00/month for this. I understand it's helped tremendously at shelters where barking is a problem, so that's good....but I don't think it's a reliable babysitter for a destructive dog. If that's the reason a dog owner would use this channel, then they're kidding themselves. The animal (and owner) need behavioral training. No TV channel will ever replace (or influence) what proper training provides.
When I had my dogs and needed to leave, I'd keep a radio on for them. With cable Tv, if the cable goes out, the Tv set makes an annoying hissing sound. The cats are never interested in TV.
I can see a possible use in shelters, as those critters lack human contact.
I've had dogs with separation issues and did find music and lots of reassurance was the answer. Would not pay for this type of service.
When it was necessary for me to go north to help my mom, I made tape recording of my voice for Gismo(Spideyman).
In the one video, the lady tells the dog to sit and stay as she opens the door. Can you picture a dog at home watching this..... ok I'll sit and stay all day

This is the best idea. Even if you tape yourself reading a book, it would be much more reassuring to the pet. My dog gets upset when she hears dogs barking on tv. She pokes the screen with her nose and I don't want her to get hurt if she pokes hard enough to break the screen.
