"Murphy is monitoring herself without the collar on. I have to laugh because she goes to her crate in another room, gets on my lap or lays where she cannot see the TV. She is probably smarter than I am."
"Murphy will react to a dog (or any animal) on TV. Even if the animal is not making any noise, he has a sixth sense and will even wake out of a sound sleep. I respond the same way I respond to any behavior I don't like with…"
"Update on Murphy and TV barking. I turned on the power on her SPORTDOG collar. It is the basic one that has three levels, the first being vibration. It does not have a remote like you need to train a hunting dog. …"
"MURPHY - my wonder puppy is the most obnoxious TV barker even. Not really fair since we have only had Siberian Huskies who rarely bark at all, one Golden Retreiver, who was an angel in all ways, but she really bothered my DH's allergies,…"

"I had a foster doodle that watched tv she wasn’t a barker though. Suggestion to try that you can tweak to your situation. Praise her through the day when she’s quiet and you are in that room. When she starts barking, Tell her…"
"Watch non-animal shows? :-) I would think he would get used to it and settle down. Picco still barks when he sees animals, especially dogs on TV but usually gets bored after awhile. He does watch TV with us,…"
