Is Man’s Best Friend a Good TV Companion?
It’s Friday night and time to catch up on your favorite fall season episodes. You pour yourself a glass of wine, make a bucket of popcorn, and let the week come to a satisfying finish. As you look over, you see your furry companion ready to join you, excited to see what happens next.
Is this a shared guilty pleasure or just a coincidence?
Here is what the research says:
- Your dog’s vision has an impact on their experience. With fewer color-sensing cones in their retinas, they see within blue and yellow spectrums of light.
- Every dog is unique; your dog’s personality dictates their interest.
- The quality of your TV screen makes a difference. High definition television is better for dogs because they are more sensitive to movement.
- Dogs are drawn to dogs and dog noises, from barking to the squeaking of their favorite toys.
So grab your furry companion a treat and cuddle up to savor the weekend together.
