Some dogs have been known to like watching TV, and then there’s Junior.
To say Junior the Border Collie is immersed when he watches television would be putting it mildly. To that end, his owners say he’s become familiar with theme songs and characters, thanks to the ample time he logs in front of a screen.
Here he is, watching clips of other dogs doing tricks. When he sees something he likes, the dog jumps up and barks. But mainly Junior watches with rapt attention.
According to the video description, “dogs can see the television, they just see it differently.” The description explains:
The reaction the dog has comes down to its personality. Some dogs are very territorial and when they see another dog on the television, they may bark and freak out to make it leave. Other dogs hate people and seeing people on the tube may create a nasty reaction. The breed of the dog also has a lot to do with their reaction. Hound Dogs are driven by their nose and are not usually interested in visual stimulation; however, Border Collies like Junior can be obsessed with moving objects, making the television a highly stimulating activity.
